Reel Art – Film Fest preview party

March 7, 2010

On Location: MEMPHIS will host Reel Art, a unique art auction on March 19, 7 pm at Marshall Arts Gallery, 639 Marshall Ave.   Reel Art will showcase the work of local artists who have created distinctive pieces of artwork that are film-themed or inspired by film.  The event is being presented in partnership with Marshall Arts, Pinkney and Janice Herbert and other local arts groups.

Instead of asking artist to donate their artwork, proceeds from the sale of each piece will be split between the artist and On Location: MEMPHIS, which is a 501c3 non-profit organization, to support monthly film screenings hosted by the organization.  Reel Art will also include performances by local musicians and projection of local films throughout the gallery bringing together all forms of art and artists working in partnership to promote the arts in Memphis.

“While we have always included a broad spectrum of the community of artists, Reel Art will allow us to showcase the multitude of talented visual artists in Memphis,”  said Lisa Bobal, On Location: MEMPHIS president.  “We believe that collaborations such as this are key to creating and sustaining a vibrant arts community in Memphis.”
