Local Color

"Atelier artists were given the assignment
to paint our hometown...local landmarks. 
The challenge is to bring each artists' unique vision
and technical approach
to these familiar everyday images." 

The paintings in this exhibition are “genre” paintings. By genre we mean artworks that reflect everyday life. Visitors to the exhibition, if they are familiar with Memphis everyday life, will recognize these images.

The Atelier artists bring individual visions and techniques in representing the “Memphis Scene”. Architectural and natural realism, in these works, take a back seat to color, shape and form and conveys a more inspirational view of our beautiful hometown.

We sincerely hope you enjoy the exhibition.
