  • dreamESCAPES: Works by O. Gustavo Plascencia

    Jul 17th, 2018
    All-day Event
    MCA Gallery at Playhouse on the Square, 66 S. Cooper, Memphis, TN 38104

    dreamESCAPES is a series of imagined, constructed landscapes of famous
    cities, iconic places, and sometimes rural, non-descriptive corners of the world.
    The disappeared, the lost, and the wished collide in these imagined landscapes.
    Many of the stories depicted are metaphors of family secrets, personal struggles,
    dreams, and shared experiences – both in public and private places. All of the
    images investigate of the duality – and sometimes conflict – between domesticity
    and utilitarianism, reality and fantasy, self and society. By rearranging and
    reconstructing stories, landscapes, or memories, Plascencia explores poetic versions of
    home, belonging, loss, self, gender, and domesticity. The narratives presented in
    dreamESCAPES use mystic, allegoric, and historical references and are all
    anchored in the premise that the landscape is both a silent witness and a vehicle
    for those narratives.

    Plascencia is a visual artist and educator whose creative work explores the constructive nature of identity and the conflict that individuals face building their identities. He explores intersections of place, personal narratives, and the body; all anchored in the notion that place/landscape is a silent witness to these narratives. He attended the Escuela de Artes Plasticas “Ruben Herrera” in Saltillo, Mexico before immigrating to the USA and holds an MFA in Photography/New Media from the University of Colorado, Boulder and and BFA in Fine Arts from the University of Texas at Arlington. His work has been shown nationally and internationally including: Instituto Fotografico de Medellin, The International Center of Bethlehem, The Polytechnic University of Valencia, and Academia de Bellas Artes San Carlos. He is currently an Associate Professor of Art and Director of the MFA Programs at Memphis College of Art.

  • Resident Artist Pecha Kucha

    Jul 17th, 2018
    6:00pm - 8:00pm
    Crosstown Arts, 1350 Concourse Ave., Suite 280, Memphis, TN

    Crosstown Arts resident artists will deliver talks in the Pecha Kucha format.

    The key to Pecha Kucha is the 20×20 format: all presenters show 20 slides for 20 seconds each, making each presentation concise and dynamic. If you’re wondering what “Pecha Kucha” means, it draws its name from the Japanese term for the sound of “chit chat.”

    Pecha Kucha Nights began in Tokyo as an opportunity for artists, designers and architects to show samples of their work through a concise, timed presentation in a relaxed community setting. Over the past 10 years, these events have expanded to hundreds of cities across the globe, and often include a variety of community members sharing a wide array of interesting (and sometimes hilarious) topics.


    Presenting Artists:
    Linda Gallagher
    Ashley Roach-Friedman
    Ondine Geary
    Janaye Brown
    Mike Calway-Fagen

  • dreamESCAPES: Works by O. Gustavo Plascencia

    Jul 20th, 2018
    All-day Event
    MCA Gallery at Playhouse on the Square, 66 S. Cooper, Memphis, TN 38104

    dreamESCAPES is a series of imagined, constructed landscapes of famous
    cities, iconic places, and sometimes rural, non-descriptive corners of the world.
    The disappeared, the lost, and the wished collide in these imagined landscapes.
    Many of the stories depicted are metaphors of family secrets, personal struggles,
    dreams, and shared experiences – both in public and private places. All of the
    images investigate of the duality – and sometimes conflict – between domesticity
    and utilitarianism, reality and fantasy, self and society. By rearranging and
    reconstructing stories, landscapes, or memories, Plascencia explores poetic versions of
    home, belonging, loss, self, gender, and domesticity. The narratives presented in
    dreamESCAPES use mystic, allegoric, and historical references and are all
    anchored in the premise that the landscape is both a silent witness and a vehicle
    for those narratives.

    Plascencia is a visual artist and educator whose creative work explores the constructive nature of identity and the conflict that individuals face building their identities. He explores intersections of place, personal narratives, and the body; all anchored in the notion that place/landscape is a silent witness to these narratives. He attended the Escuela de Artes Plasticas “Ruben Herrera” in Saltillo, Mexico before immigrating to the USA and holds an MFA in Photography/New Media from the University of Colorado, Boulder and and BFA in Fine Arts from the University of Texas at Arlington. His work has been shown nationally and internationally including: Instituto Fotografico de Medellin, The International Center of Bethlehem, The Polytechnic University of Valencia, and Academia de Bellas Artes San Carlos. He is currently an Associate Professor of Art and Director of the MFA Programs at Memphis College of Art.

  • Metal Clay Jewelry Techniques: Modern Granulation

    Jul 21st, 2018
    10:00am - 5:00pm
    750 Cherry Road, Memphis, TN 38117

    Granulation is an ancient metalsmithing technique that has traditionally been done in pure metals, like fine gold or fine silver as the little pieces are fused to the base to create a solid metal piece. It requires some odd materials, such as hide glue and a LOT of patience. Metal clay has revolutionized modern metalsmithing and even ancient techniques are able to be incorporated into this wonderful and accessible medium. For this class, instructor Brandy Boyd has taken what is traditionally seen as a complex technique and leveraged Metal Clay’s unique abilities to reduce the number of tools needed and simplify a complex process. You’ll learn how to make gorgeous granulated pieces with an incredibly small number of tools and no special equipment. Depending on size, students can expect to go home with 2-5 pieces.

    You will be provided with an assortment of fine silver granules, fine silver wire shapes and enough metal clay to create several pieces. We will fire the pieces in the kiln and you will go home with finished pieces. I will do a demonstration on how to make your own granules from bits of fine silver wire or scrap and how to torch fire your metal clay if you want to continue at home but don’t have a kiln. 

    All tools are provided for use in class and all materials needed to complete the projects are included in your class kit. Class kit is $40 and is payable to Brandy Boyd /BMB Designs by cash or Credit card the day of class. It includes: Pro-polish pad, fine silver metal clay, fine silver wire, fine silver granules, and finishing papers. There will be a mini Pop-up shop with additional supplies available for purchase (cash or credit card ok) Pre-payment due by noonJuly 18th. $50 MBG members/$65 non-members (plus supply fee).901-636-4128 for more information or to register.

  • dreamESCAPES: Works by O. Gustavo Plascencia

    Jul 24th, 2018
    All-day Event
    MCA Gallery at Playhouse on the Square, 66 S. Cooper, Memphis, TN 38104

    dreamESCAPES is a series of imagined, constructed landscapes of famous
    cities, iconic places, and sometimes rural, non-descriptive corners of the world.
    The disappeared, the lost, and the wished collide in these imagined landscapes.
    Many of the stories depicted are metaphors of family secrets, personal struggles,
    dreams, and shared experiences – both in public and private places. All of the
    images investigate of the duality – and sometimes conflict – between domesticity
    and utilitarianism, reality and fantasy, self and society. By rearranging and
    reconstructing stories, landscapes, or memories, Plascencia explores poetic versions of
    home, belonging, loss, self, gender, and domesticity. The narratives presented in
    dreamESCAPES use mystic, allegoric, and historical references and are all
    anchored in the premise that the landscape is both a silent witness and a vehicle
    for those narratives.

    Plascencia is a visual artist and educator whose creative work explores the constructive nature of identity and the conflict that individuals face building their identities. He explores intersections of place, personal narratives, and the body; all anchored in the notion that place/landscape is a silent witness to these narratives. He attended the Escuela de Artes Plasticas “Ruben Herrera” in Saltillo, Mexico before immigrating to the USA and holds an MFA in Photography/New Media from the University of Colorado, Boulder and and BFA in Fine Arts from the University of Texas at Arlington. His work has been shown nationally and internationally including: Instituto Fotografico de Medellin, The International Center of Bethlehem, The Polytechnic University of Valencia, and Academia de Bellas Artes San Carlos. He is currently an Associate Professor of Art and Director of the MFA Programs at Memphis College of Art.

    With her ability to channel the enchanting nature of Erykah Badu and the no-nonsense dynamism of Nina Simone, Talibah Safiya is a truly spellbinding performer. After years of theatre training at Overton High School in her hometown of Memphis, TN, and a brief sojourn through Howard University of Washington, D.C., Talibah Safiya would eventually find her tribe among the bohemian Brooklynites of New York City. This community connected her to audiences throughout the East coast, as she opened for artists such as Bilal and Pharcyde, collaborated with the likes of Atlantic Records’ Kamau, and sat in on countless writing sessions with some of the nations’ best musicians and songwriters.

    Implementing time as material, artists Frances Berry and Jenny Fine join forces to create TUNNEL VISION, a collaborative installation that explores the family photographic archive and the space of memory.

    Combining the historical form of the tunnel card with overlapping projections of still and moving imagery culled from the artists’ family archives, TUNNEL VISION invites the viewer to become a part of this colliding Southern mind-scape.

  • dreamESCAPES: Works by O. Gustavo Plascencia

    Jul 28th, 2018
    All-day Event
    MCA Gallery at Playhouse on the Square, 66 S. Cooper, Memphis, TN 38104

    dreamESCAPES is a series of imagined, constructed landscapes of famous
    cities, iconic places, and sometimes rural, non-descriptive corners of the world.
    The disappeared, the lost, and the wished collide in these imagined landscapes.
    Many of the stories depicted are metaphors of family secrets, personal struggles,
    dreams, and shared experiences – both in public and private places. All of the
    images investigate of the duality – and sometimes conflict – between domesticity
    and utilitarianism, reality and fantasy, self and society. By rearranging and
    reconstructing stories, landscapes, or memories, Plascencia explores poetic versions of
    home, belonging, loss, self, gender, and domesticity. The narratives presented in
    dreamESCAPES use mystic, allegoric, and historical references and are all
    anchored in the premise that the landscape is both a silent witness and a vehicle
    for those narratives.

    Plascencia is a visual artist and educator whose creative work explores the constructive nature of identity and the conflict that individuals face building their identities. He explores intersections of place, personal narratives, and the body; all anchored in the notion that place/landscape is a silent witness to these narratives. He attended the Escuela de Artes Plasticas “Ruben Herrera” in Saltillo, Mexico before immigrating to the USA and holds an MFA in Photography/New Media from the University of Colorado, Boulder and and BFA in Fine Arts from the University of Texas at Arlington. His work has been shown nationally and internationally including: Instituto Fotografico de Medellin, The International Center of Bethlehem, The Polytechnic University of Valencia, and Academia de Bellas Artes San Carlos. He is currently an Associate Professor of Art and Director of the MFA Programs at Memphis College of Art.
