Radcliffe Bailey

After seeing Radcliffe Bailey's wonderful piece "Tricky" at Fogelman I ordered this book. Very inspiring and much to think about. The one downer is that I missed his show at Clough-Hansen back in 2005. I'm kicking myself. Definitely going to make the effort to get out and see more from now on.

Hats off to Elliot and Kimberly Perry for bringing such inspiring art to Memphis and sharing it with the public. Elliot was great on the court and now he's great for the community.

Terri Jones @Tops

Friend Chuck and I spent this past Saturday making the rounds and seeing some art here in Memphis. The highlight was definitely Terri Jones show at Tops. Beautiful and moving. Haunting, but in a good way. Like images from a wonderful dream that you want to carry with you through the day. Her use of the space (and what a cool space!) is perfect. This is a show you will kick yourself for later if you don't go see it. And go see Tops Gallery. This was my first time and I look forward to seeing more shows there in the future.
