    When: September 13-November 3, 2019

    Reception Sunday, September 15, 3-5 p.m.

    Film2Fiber2Film

    For the past year, Judith Dierkes has been working in film, or rather working with film. She was consumed by the idea of crocheting film together last summer, and spent the fall exploring the best way to give the filmstrips a new life. The result, Film2Fiber, became an installation at the University of Memphis ArtLab in spring 2019. Some of that work is included in this exhibit.

     

    With this show, Judith Comes full circle by taking the fiber to film in quilted wall hangings using a film print fabric. The fabric was designed for St. Jude back when it had a partnership with Hancock Fabrics; and each year there was a quilt challenge where participants had to use 80% of the St. Jude fabric to make a quilt. The quilts were interpretations of a child’s dream, and after the challenge they were donated to children at St. Jude. Dierkes participated each year.

    Now she uses the film print fabric to comment on filmmaking. Judith created Film2Fiber2Film at Playhouse because it is one of the venues for the Indie Memphis Film Festival. She will have some small work for sale only at the reception.

    Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church, 70 North Bellevue, Memphis, TN, 38104

    SWEET HONEY IN THE ROCK ENSEMBLE

    TO PERFORM OCTOBER 25TH IN TWO CONCERTS

    AT MISSISSIPPI BOULEVARD

    The renowned a cappella ensemble Sweet Honey In The Rock® will perform two concerts on Friday, October 25, 2019 at Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church, 70 North Bellevue, Memphis (38104).  There will be a student matinee at 10:30 a.m. and a public performance at 8:00 p.m. Both concerts will be presented vocally as well as through American Sign Language interpretation.Tickets range are $5 for the student matinee and $38 for the evening performance.  Dinner and VIP tickets are also available.  Tickets can be purchased online at https://sweethoney.bpt.me.  For more information, call 1-800-838-3006.

    “On February 28, 1927 in Memphis, Tennessee, the blind sanctified singer Mamie Forehand recorded a refrain based on Psalm 81:16. In this passage of scripture the poet and musician King David advised his people that if they would serve the Lord they would be rewarded by being fed “honey out of the rock,” the place where according to legend of that time, the sweetest nectar was produced. The song became widely popular among Pentecostal, Baptist and Methodist congregations but, as often happens, it underwent a slight textual change on its way to popularity. While Forehand titled her song “Honey In The Rock” and sang those words, random congregations soon added the adjective “sweet” to the title, and the song has come down through history as “Sweet Honey in the Rock.” Forty-six years after Forehand introduced the song, a quintet of African-American women, singing as a unit of the vocal workshop of Washington D.C’s Black Repertory Theater Company, organized an a cappella group and called themselves “Sweet Honey In The Rock.”

    Since 1980 this three-time Grammy Award nominee has embraced inclusiveness of all people no matter what their abilities. They perform in the African American tradition of using music and song to advance freedom and social justice. Offering enjoyment for all at Sweet Honey In The Rock® concerts, American sign language was included as a regular part of the Sweet Honey experience with the addition of Shirley Childress, who remained sign language interpreter extraordinaire until her passing in 2017 after 37 years of service to the group.

    The Memphis concert is part of their 45th anniversary tour. This special anniversary concert features core singers Carol Mallard, Louise Robinson, Nitanju Bolade Casel, Aisha Kahlil, bass player Romeir Mendez and vocalists Rochelle Rice and Christie Dashille.  WKNO will also air the documentary Sweet Honey in the Rock:Raise Your Voice on Saturday October 19 at 7:00 PM and on Sunday, October 20 at 5:30 PM.

The annual publication listed hotels, restaurants, service stations, and other businesses willing to serve African American customers, and in doing so allow drivers to more safely navigate throughout the United States.

    Since 1991, the Freedom Award has honored distinguished individuals who have made great global and national impact. These men and women are lauded for their work in the struggle for civil and human rights.
