Now Showing At Brooks Museum, MemphisPosted: July 23, 2012 | Author: Mandy | Filed under: Shows and Appearances | 2 Comments »
I’m absolutely thrilled to have my work on display at the prestigious Brooks Museum of Art in Memphis. My painting, Great Heights was selected to be in the show, If I Can Dream. It also won honorable mention in the professional category. The show will be up til the end of September, check it out!
Earlier this month, when I was dropping off the painting, we toured the current exhibits at the museum. In the same gallery my painting is currently hanging was a drawing by the artist Carroll Cloar. (His work is featured at the ASU Library. It’s the giant mosaic as you walk through the doors.) He is from my hometown. I remember my great grandmother telling me stories about him. I went to Carroll Cloar workshops at our local museum. I’ve always loved his work and respected it as an artist. It was incredibly affirming to see his work where mine would soon be. Especially at the Brooks.
Here are some in-progress pictures of Great Heights:
