Party on the Porch For the Kingdom Camp
The Party on the Porch was held recently to benefit For the Kingdom Camp. The FTK property, located on Raleigh-Millington Road, was originally owned by Stax studio executive Jim Stewart and hosted countless music legends. The property was eventually acquired by Becky and Eddie Cunningham, who donated it to Memphis Leadership Foundation with the intent of it becoming a camp to teach urban children about Christ. This summer, For The Kingdom Camp provided their first fun and challenging camping experiences for evangelism, discipleship, character building, and recreation for Memphis' inner city youth. The organization also provides training opportunities for leaders working with urban youth. For more information, visit ftkmemphis.com.

Good-hearted drama critic, Mortimer Brewster, appears to lead a normal, happy life. Recently engaged to be married, Mortimer plans a trip to visit his charming, spinster aunts, Abby and Martha Brewster. However, shortly after Mortimer’s arrival, he discovers that his invnocent aunts have a deadly secret buried in the basement--about a dozen older gentlemen. To Mortimer’s dismay, Abby and Martha deem their poisonous habits as charitable acts, convinced that they are putting these men out of their misery. Attempting to protect society without sending Abby and Martha to prison, hilarity and madness ensue as Mortimer tries to wrangle in his crazy aunts, along with his brothers--Theodore, who believes he is Theodore Roosevelt, and maniacal, murderous Jonathan.

Leopards and Plaids
The Memphis Botanic Garden is gearing up for its 18th summer concert season, Live at the Garden, and the grounds are ready to welcome everyone. Coincidentally, summer came a little early this year and the blooms were right on point along with moody skies that promised rain the day of our shoot. While the foliage is always beautiful and familiar and the weather provided the perfect light, it was the architectural elements that helped focus on this month's fashion story: structured and tailored looks that go from casual chic to garden glam. Dressing up in the Garden is going to be a cinch this year thanks to our local retailers who have these looks in store and they are ready for all the summer outdoor fun.

MUST-HAVES By Augusta Campbell
Tailoring and structured details are in high demand for summer fashion. Accessories can be smooth and lacking in frills to finish out your sharp look. These items are perfect for rounding out the very best in sleek style and are available at retailers right here in Memphis.
1. Glam baseball cap / Lansky 126 @ Peabody Hotel Pink satin cap with no logo, no seams, but high on style. 2. Floral Architecture / Kittie Kyle @ Laurelwood These flowery earrings arenâ€™t frilly at all and take the petal trend into a more subdued direction.
3. Smooth Steppin' / Oak Hall @ Regalia
These shoes are anything but basic, as the style and personality are understated in the perfect shade of neutral red.
4. Eva Hobo / Brahmin @ Shops of Saddle Creek
This bag is all about the lines and has plenty of room to keep you organized for days.
5. Gold Standard / Kittie Kyle @ Laurelwood
Hoops are re-imagined in these mirror-like shapes that are as light as feathers.

Big Style at Art by Design
Story by Lesley Harris Colvett Photos courtesy of ArtsMemphis; Photography by Sarah Rossi
Art by Design, presented by ArtsMemphis, was held April 5-8, 2018, and showcased the talents of many of Memphisâ€™ premier interior designers. 4Memphis chatted with participating designers Cindy McCord, Warner Moore, Lisa Mallory and Anthony Shaw about their vision, inspiration, and style featured in their unique vignettes.
Anthony Shaw: Art + Vintage & Contemporary Pieces = Elegant Drama I was thrilled to be asked to do a vignette supporting Art by Design. When imagining what I envisioned for the space, I wanted to step outside of the traditional Memphis aesthetic and show how one can mix contemporary with vintage and antiquity. I wanted a room that was visually pleasing but also liveable and realistic. I started with the main focal wall by applying an antiqued foil paper to give the room balance with the other walls that were done in a neutral palette. From there, we added a Goyard inspired, patterned hide rug that kept with the neutrals but gave the floor some movement. A cleanlined traditional sofa was brought into the mix but the color punched in a chartreuse, which was toned down with an array of darker custom pillows. The wall opposite the sofa was anchored by a vintage traditional ebonied Japanned secretary. Surrounding that was floor to ceiling Art Deco inspired brass and Lucite mirrors, which gave that wall a sense of structure and reflective quality. We added texture and patterns through draperies and other furniture throughout. From there, we picked objects and artwork that I have purchased through my travels, which gives the room a sense of who one is. The last piece we installed went above the sofa and was a 10â€™ long sculptural piece of Pop Art of a leaping neon tiger. Art by Design was a great venue for designers to express their talents and individuality.
Lisa Mallory: Art Takes Center Stage in this Dreamy Bedroom When I was asked to do a vignette for ArtsMemphis I wanted to do something unforgettable. Something that no one had done before. My first thought was to use the portrait of my sons done 20 years age by Mary Sims. It's my most prized possession. If my house were on fire the painting would be out the door right after Bertie-Wooster, my wire-haired fox terrier. After my staff and I discussed the room at work, the decision was unanimous that we would do the room around the painting. Having a linen shop, a furniture shop, and a design studio we chose to do a bedroom incorporating a seating area. This would enable us to do beautiful bedding and furniture sold in the shop. My long time friend David Lusk had commissioned the portrait for me, so it was only natural that he would help with all of the artwork in the vignette. We selected three Ted Faiers and a Robert Yasuda from the artists he represents at his gallery. We chose colors and design that would complement the Mary Sims, whose estate David still represents. Of course the artwork was the most important design element. In 1997 Mary came to our house to prepare for the portrait and selected everything that the portrait would be. The clothes, shoes, and accessories all belonged to our family. One year later, the portrait appeared and we loved the composition and especially the outfits she had chosen for each of us! I still had these at the house and decided to use the dress, Michael Jordan tennis shoes, and baseball bat in the vignette! This made it more personal and took us all back 20 years. The first thing I chose to go with the portrait was the sofa and chair fabric. I wanted to bring out the blues and greens in the portrait. The pillows on the sofa pulled all the colors together. The neutral bedding was a background for contemporary, colorful, decorative velvet pillows that helped make the room unforgettable and gave it an updated, young look. The bed was a large, iron bed with a tall canopy that lent an overthe-top presence without detracting from the portrait and artwork. I wanted the room to be transitional, not traditional or contemporary. The bench with the lucite legs, gold coffee table, lamps and accessories achieved that goal. The last thing chosen was the wall color, and I decided that on the day we started to install. When I saw the size of the vignette I decided to use a rich, dark Mediterranean blue that was perfect for the colors in the portrait and pulled the room together. Ultimately, I was very pleased with the outcome. I did not tell the boys I was using their portrait for the Art by Design vignette. I knew they would have been embarrassed. The opening night of the vignette, I think they must have gotten 20 pictures, calls and snap chats from their friends, so it all turned out ok!
Cindy McCord: Small Media Room with Big Impact Cindy McCord and Brad Parsley, Co-Owner, Audio Video Artistry, collaborated to make the vignette into a small media room with big impact. “Often, homeowners turn spare bedrooms into entertainment rooms. The dimensions of our vignette at Art by Design was typical of that space. We set forth some lofty requirements for our little system. Sonically and visually we wanted it to compromise nothing. It would include the latest Dolby Atmos surround technology and we wanted ‘A list’ components to be used, and it should be ridiculously easy to use,” says Brad. “Even though the room is dedicated for a media room, we still wanted to make aesthetics a priority. And we wanted to do it under $10k so most people could actually afford it.” The 75” size TV was chosen for its proportion with the console Cindy chose. “We gave the Samsung LED some extra pop on the wall by adding colored lighting behind it; an inexpensive touch that added major cool factor. We also modified the console to hide the audio/video equipment behind false drawer fronts. Even though the equipment was hidden from view, a Crestron handheld remote easily operated the system via radio frequency. As an extra touch, we added the room’s lighting to the remote as well,” says Brad. The Integra Dolby Atmos receiver drove seven Sonance speakers and an SVS subwoofer. In-wall or floorstanding speakers would’ve clashed with the wall sconces and custom ottomans Cindy chose. Instead we used a Sonance soundbar for the left, center, and right channel. The soundbar adjusts in width to perfectly match the width of any TV. It’s a small thing but it keeps the look clean and symmetrical. Brad says the gray palette Cindy chose works well for media rooms, and ideally, a media room should have nothing to distract from the viewer’s focus on the TV, but that can make for a boring room. Large decorative panels were added to the side walls to give the room a signature design element but the panels also serve the essential role of sound baffles. Controlling sound waves is a huge advantage of a dedicated room and panels like these could be configured in countless ways to achieve an acoustically and aesthetically pleasing room. “Having installed hundreds of these systems over the years, I thought Cindy’s use of carpet squares was awesome. Things will be spilled in a media room and it’s easy to just replace a square when needed. Plus, the design options seem perfect for this use,” says Brad.
Warner Moore: The Anatomy of a Room When contemplating turning a 12x16 foot space into a livable room I had to decide what room in a house I would create. I chose the living room because of all rooms in the house it tells the story and shows the personality of the family. Next, I had to choose the “family” and decide what their history and lifestyle might be. I decided on a formal room reflecting a life time of collecting lovely things from around the world, concentrating on Europe and the Orient. In fleshing this out I started from the floor up, literally! An Aubusson rug was my choice. A paint color was chosen based on the rug. The deep salmon/rose creates a warm and inviting background for the furnishings. I’m off and running! I decided to make the space a traditional room with some contemporary pieces to bring it into the 21st century. After deciding on the “look” of my room, I started to fabricate it. My first thought was that it needed a focal point. A fire place came to mind. Once again, creating an atmosphere of intimacy. Now begins the layering of furniture objects that tell the story of years of collecting and inheriting. This is a sophisticated, well-traveled couple whose things have personal significance. Every piece has its own story. It was great fun creating this family and their style. The furniture arrangement is conducive to lively conversation yet intimate enough for a couple to sit quietly by the fire. I especially love that there is no television in this room! The furniture is decidedly European, French chairs and commode, English consoles. The contemporary glass “wave” coffee table is a nod to Paris in the 1940s. The furniture is an interesting combination of pieces made of wood, glass and metal. The last layer is the accessories. Aside from the ancestral painting, I have chosen art from our wealth of local and regional artists. We are fortunate to have so many. The nudes over the commode are the work of Rosalee Cohn. The painting to the right is by Anton Weiss. The beautiful wall sculpture made of wire and handmade and painted paper is a creation of Colleen Couch Smith. The assortment of bronze, marble, coral and porcelain objects are reminiscent of a love of traveling. Here we have a room that reflects years of acquisitions. A quiet tapestry of generations.

201 Kings of Grit
By C.J. Kirkland
"We have core values. We use teamwork. We show grace and we teach each other." James Lancaster
I don’t know much about most superheroes’ back stories, which can be quite annoying for whomever I’m watching the latest superhero movie with. “Is this a DC Comic character? Marvel? Why does that one hate the other so much? How did she get her superpowers anyway?” But though I may not be wellinformed on their histories, I’ve recognized particular characteristics they all possess that lend to their being classified as a superhero. These various traits all bounced around in my head as I reflected on the work Memphian James Lancaster is doing within our community, specifically his work with the young men housed as inmates at 201 Poplar.
Photography by Mark Adams
A superhero doesn’t boast about his powers and is often uncomfortable with any attention placed on him as opposed to his work (with the exception of Iron Man, as my husband pointed out!) This was one of the first things I learned about Lancaster, a former professional football player turned CrossFit competitor and, in fact, the only West Tennessee athlete to qualify for 2017’s Reebok CrossFit Games (Central Region)- the sport’s largest, most elite competition. Despite the fact that I see him numerous times a week coaching at our gym downtown, I had no idea what he was doing with his “free time” until a fellow athlete shared it with me. Lancaster isn’t comfortable talking about his own life’s accomplishments-“this isn’t about me,” he always says- but he becomes very spirited when reflecting on the changes he’s seen in several of the men at 201 Poplar since he began coaching them in 2015. Every Thursday Lancaster reports to F-Pod, where he coaches fifteen to twenty male inmates, aged 18-25, in CrossFit (CrossFit is “both a physical exercise philosophy and competitive fitness sport… workouts incorporate elements from high-intensity interval training, Olympic weightlifting, plyometrics, powerlifting, gymnastics, girevoy sport, calisthenics, strongman, and other exercises.”) Their fitness levels are as varied as their personalities and reasons for which they are incarcerated, so no session is ever the same. There are guys he’s grown accustomed to seeing who will no longer show up because they have been sent to another facility, have begun a work assignment or, the most celebrated reason, have gone home. The changes are constant, but so is his presence and so are the problems that plague these young lives: young men who have often given up on themselves because those in their circle gave up a long time ago. But Lancaster doesn’t give up. Neither do superheroes, by the way.
Photography by flsportsguyphotography
He didn’t give up when injuries put him on his back and pulled him out of the life for which he’d worked so hard. He didn’t give up when the road to recovery included unforeseen speed bumps slowing him down, over and over again. Or when, on that same road, he was forced to a standstill and the conversations were solely between him and God. Resilience had been a constant in his life as a football player; it was here, now, in the absence of football, where he learned what it meant to be relentless. Lancaster eventually got back on his feet and let his faith lead the way. It led him home, back to the city that needed him and into the lives of people who desperately needed someone to fight for them.
They may not call him a superhero, he definitely doesn’t consider himself a superhero, but those of us watching this story unfold clearly see the ways in which he is using his powers to fight threats against humanity: threats such as despair, depression, and hopelessness felt by many of the young men he meets with every week. While it could be easy for him to point the finger at events in their lives that begot the consequence of them being at 201 Poplar in the first place, Lancaster is too busy using his hands to lift kettle bells and throw medicine balls, teaching them how to do the same; teaching them about rebuilding and repurposing their lives, about being relentless when the world as they know it is collapsing in on them. As this issue goes to print Lancaster is preparing to compete in the 2018 Reebok CrossFit Games (Central Regional), ranked one of the top 20 out of more than 10,000 regional CrossFit athletes. In addition to his daily training, he continues to coach the young men weekly at 201 Poplar through his Kings of Grit program.

Surf and Turf with Grilled Asparagus 1 8 ounce filet Mignon 1 6 to 8 ounce lobster tail 6 asparagus spears Juice of one lemon Lobster: Using scissors, cut down the center of the top of the shell. Stop cutting at the tail fin. Gently pull the tail meat up through the slit and lay it over the shell. Baste lobster with garlic butter, squeeze fresh lemon juice over the top, and season with salt and pepper. Place tail on grill, meat side up. Cook for about 10 minutes covered. Remove from grill and allow to cool slightly. Remove the shell from the meat but keep tail fin in tact. When the filet is almost done, baste the tail with butter again and return to grill, meat side down. Finish cooking an additional 2 minutes or so. This will give the tail some char and lots of flavor. Filet Mignon: Season liberally with salt and pepper. Place on grill and cook to desired temperature.

Dirty Rice: One cup of rice is going to need 2 cups chicken stock. Under cook your rice slightly as you will still need to recook it when you make it into dirty rice. Add a handful of chopped tasso ham, a handful of sliced andouille sausage, classic Cajun trinity (handful of onion, green pepper, celery) and a touch of stewed tomatoes. Baby Spinach: Heat a skillet over medium heat. Take a generous handful of your baby spinach and place it in the skillet with about a tablespoon of butter, a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper.

Morgan did an incredible job incorporating her spunky, wild, flower child personality and John Luke's southern gentleman sweetness into every aspect of their day. I absolutely loved her attention to detail. Her vendor team placed every detail perfectly, creating a serene, enchanting secret garden with sweet touches of sunflowers and greenery. The beautiful horses roaming the pastures at the ceremony site completed the storybook look. John Luke & Morgan are such a sweet, genuine and FUN couple! They are crazy about each other and encourage one an other in all their personal endeavors. I loved watching John Luke's precious face and his ear-to-ear smile as he fell more in love with his bride. They are smitten with each other, and it is adorable. :)" - MKS Venue: Hedge Farms Flowers: The Flower Girls

Editor’s Note Langston Myers
Words. More words. I typically enjoy writing editor’s notes. I get to share my thoughts on just about anything I want with some people that I do know and others that I don’t, all throughout Memphis. There was a brief lapse in editor’s notes for the past couple of months because the Impact staff had so much content and needed all the space we could get for articles. So typically, I would be ecstatic to revive these letters, but I have about had it with words, and I’m sure that by this point in the school year, most students can relate. In the past week, I think I have written a total of about 10,000 words. This includes exams, papers, notes to my friends who are graduating, and so on and so forth. I am so exhausted from having to express my thoughts on paper. So why do I do it? Why do we do it? Why continue to put forth the effort that leaves us so drained. For some, it is the immediate reward of knowing you’ve done well. For others, it’s in preparation for college and for their future. They work so they can get scholarships or into their dream schools so that one day they will be happy and feel satisfied with what they have accomplished. But when does that actually happen? College will be the same never-ending cycle of working into the late hours of the night, all so that you can go to grad school. Grad school will be a repeat of this process, except this time you will be expected to have a job whilst being a student to pay for such grad school. Finally, you have a career, and you think that this cycle will end. But it never truly does. There is always something else that we strive for. There is always another class, another promotion, another something that could determine our success.If we never find time to be happy and have enjoy ourselves in the moment, then when will we? Success and happiness are not synonymous. Success is something that must be worked for, but happiness is something that must be taken advantage of. So, after I finish this letter, I am going to put my theoretical pencil down and take time to be happy. I will travel, go swimming, drink lemonade, read good books, and enjoy summer before I will have to start writing college essays. Until then, I will live in the present, and I encourage all of you to do the same.

Not only did I get to watch as many new upcoming designers saw their pieces come to life as they were walked down the run way, but I also saw the models make these pieces their own as they walked. One of the models who walked this year, as well as in the past, gave me a glimpse of what itâ€™s like behind the scenes of Memphis Fashion Week this year and past years. Riley Bartlett, senior at St. Agnes Academy, has been walking in the show for 4 years, including this year at the Memphis College of Art and at the Friday event which was held at Graceland, and speaks very highly of the show and the way it is run. Every year, Riley says, is full of energy and fun each night she walks. Moreover, the nights run smoothly due to the hard work and preparation prior to the events of the weekend. As a model, Riley is handpicked to walk for the events in new designers clothing pieces. Riley explains that the most important thing she has learned from her experiences is how to be comfortable with not only herself, but the MFW team around her, who she says is so helpful and makes it easier for her with their high level of respect for everyone in or at the event.

On the night of April 20, hundreds of teenagers gathered together in their best dresses and sharpest suits for the traditional event that all teenagers hold sacred: prom. With loud music, bright lights, an all-you-can-eat buffet, and limousine lining the streets, the night was one that many people will remember forever. However, this prom was special. Instead of high schoolers, the dance
Memphis Joy Prom is an annual event where teens and adults with special needs get the chance to experience a night when the world revolves around them! Joy Prom is a night where the participants can have fun regardless of
fade away with every smile they receive. This night is all about them. Hundreds of volunteers work tirelessly each year to make sure that every sec ond the participants are at Joy Prom, they are greeted with love and joy! When they arrive at Christ Methodist Church and step on the red carpet, the guests are escorted into the lobby and greeted by “paparazzi” who will document every happy moment of their night. To help make this night extra special, each guest is greeted by a volunteer who will be their “date” for the night. Together the volunteer and their special guest can go to the candy bar, eat at an unlimited buffet, ride in a limo around town, take pictures in multiple photo booths, and experience special sensory activities to make their dance one of a kind! Additionally, no prom would be complete without the crowing of a prom king and queen, and Joy Prom delivers insuring that these special guests are truly kings and queens! Memphis Joy Prom is a special night not only for the guests, but for everyone who attends! Although the volunteers do the work to put the event together, it truly would not be the same without all of the love and joy the guests bring. Look for information on how you can share a night you will never forget with such special people you will always remember!

Bright lights, glittering costumes, smiling faces, and cheering audiences. This is what high schoolers across Memphis work from months to achieve in their spring musicals. For many, high school theatre is a way to express themselves like nothing else. On stage, they are able to live out the lives of the characters they portray and travel to beautiful worlds of bright colors and blinding lights that are only accessible through the set in their high school auditorium. The High School Musical Theatre Awards, presented at the Orpheum, celebrate the amazing work of high schools within a 100 mile radius of Memphis in a night of performances and award presentations. Modeled after the famous Tony Awards, each high school musical that is submitted to the program is attended by local judges and is eligible to win in multiple categories, including Outstanding Overall Production, Outstanding Actor or Actress, and Outstanding Direction by a Teacher. The awards also acknowledge the hard work of the teenagers behind the scenes with awards for Outstanding Chorus, Outstanding Hair and Makeup, Outstanding Costumes, and Outstanding Set. In addition, the Memphis High School Musical Theatre Awards are a part of the acclaimed National Jimmy Awards, which encompass 37 high school theatre awards programs across the country and recognize the winners of local programs on a national level. This year’s High School Musical Theatre Awards will be held on the night of May 24 at the Orpheum Theatre and will celebrate the amazing talent, dedication, passion, and hard work Memphis high schoolers have given to their productions this year. This year’s nominees can be found on the Orpheum website at https://orpheummemphis.com/learn-engage/high-school-musical-theatre-awards/ .
