Germantown Arts League
Opening Reception Thursday February 6th 5:30-7:30pm
The Memphis/Germantown Art League (MGAL) is a nonprofit organization of visual artists and associates supporting the work of its member artists. The League’s purpose is to aid its member artists in their professional growth and in the development of their artistic skills by providing exhibitions, workshops, demonstrations, and other continuing education opportunities. In addition, the League works to enrich the community by presenting original fine art in public exhibits, participating in other community art activities and supporting art education in the schools. Organized on August 16, 1976, as the Germantown Art League, the group was chartered on June 22, 1977, as a nonprofit Tennessee corporation. In May 1988, the organization’s name was changed to Memphis/Germantown Art League in recognition of the wider geographical distribution of its members. Today the organization includes substantial membership from locations throughout the mid-south area and surrounding states. The League depends on all its members as volunteers to serve on its Board of Directors and committees and to assist in the work of the organization.
Presented by Carolyn Hope Clark in partnership with Virgnia Fisher's Copper Baskets
March 23- April 18
Opening Reception March 23rd 2:00-4:00pm
Bright undulating fields of color draws you into an etherial world created by artist Carolyn Hope Clark. This tranquil gallery space coupled with the inherent essence of her work have inspired the show’s title: ”Sanctuary”. Carolyn’s painting have been described as beautiful, soothing, healing, and meditative. As a former massage therapist and intuitive healer, Carolyn views her art as an extension of that work. She believes creating and viewing art can touch inner aspects of our being and promote deep healing. Applying layer upon layer of acrylic paint, Carolyn’s personal painting process is spontaneous and intuitive. “If there is any goal or intention it would be to allow divine inspiration to flow through me, creating images that bring a sense of peace and healing to those willing to explore”. Born and raised here, Virginia Fisher is proud to call Memphis home. Her house and studio are in Midtown, where she lives with her husband and 2 cats. Virginia’s training in painting, metal smithing, and fiber arts are seen in each piece she makes. A patience for repetition and a passion for copper define Virginia Fisher’s current work.
