The June and July issues of 4Memphis have highlighted two historic business districts in Memphis: Summer Avenue and Broad Avenue. Summer Avenue has continued to serve as an economic hub for day to day needs of a large number of middle income Memphians, while serving as a designated spot for specialty retailers and services. Broad Avenue has been undergoing economic revival with a blend of trendy restaurants and high-end clothing stores, while becoming a spot for artistic expression and inspiration. The local coffee shops draw students from Rhodes and University of Memphis hopefully turning this once forgotten industrial spot into a must visit experience for all Memphians. The summer season is a time for vacations and family travels, and in any given summer week some 10% to 20% of local business customers are out of town. This slow down provides for business owners and their employees to take vacation, but it also can prove to be a challenging business environment for our local small businesses.
“Drink water from your own cistern” is a strange reference for those of us living in a city with abundant water. A cistern is a waterproof receptacle for holding water. Cisterns are distinguished from in-ground wells by their man-made
J uly 2016
waterproof linings and are often built on rooftops to catch and store rainwater. They are commonly used in areas where water is scarce or where there are concerns of water quality. The passage quoted above, Proverbs 5:15, is actually a command that follows a series of warnings about adultery. If one looks at marriage, it’s easy to see why Proverbs would compare its importance and characteristics to a cistern. Cisterns are built just like relationships; they must be maintained or the water will be of little use - similar to a relationship becoming broken if it is not maintained. We in the city of Memphis are in a relationship with each other, and just like a cistern or a marriage, these relationships must be built and maintained for the good of all of us. The economic importance of building relationships with each other by shopping at locally-owned businesses and supporting locally-focused charities may not seem as important to us as drinking clean water, but if our local business and charities aren’t successful the city will become just as ill as if we had all been drinking contaminated water. Doing business with our local merchants and donating to our local charities brings life and prosperity to the Mid-South. The encouragement of peace and prosperity is the mission of 4Memphis and something we can all support by Keeping it Local this summer. Seek the Peace and Prosperity of Memphis, Jim Walker

26 / 4Memphis
Memphis is a racially-divided and economically-stratified city known to the outside world as home to Elvis Presley’s Graceland and killer barbeque. Yet Memphis is a cauldron of heat and soul food and music—and extreme poverty. We live in a nation of equal rights, but unequal opportunity— this is especially true in our community. Thirty five percent of our population goes hungry every day, our murder and rape statistics are some of the highest in the country, and our racial and economic divides appear intractable. Memphis needs our help. Last year I met someone who claims to be Elvis’s high school classmate. He was sitting at the corner of Sam Cooper Boulevard and Broad Avenue, the center of Binghampton, one exceedingly hot August day. He was an older man sitting casually on the side of the road wearing a threadbare sweater and beat-up baseball cap. He seemed friendly, yet slightly lost. What is your name? “Wesley,” he mumbled, struggling to stand. I introduced myself and asked if I could take his picture for my art project. He hesitantly agreed. I pulled out my camera and captured his image. “Could I have some money?” he whispered, and I gave him what I had. He sat back down to his life, I drove away to mine. I took AP Drawing my junior year and chose to draw Wesley and twelve other vulnerable people to raise awareness in my community that these people exist, have names and families, hopes and dreams. Too often we alienate people who seem different. We categorize and weigh people on such relative scales as race, ethnicity, religion, and socioeconomic status.
I wanted to remind all of us through my artwork that everyone has a face, a voice, an identity. Some months later, I drove down Broad looking for him and ended up approaching a man who looked dirty and dilapidated. The artist in me noticed the deep wrinkles on his face and how they resembled the deep folds in his disheveled cargo pants. His unwashed hair and street-weary face unnerved me. I was verklempt. The man was Wesley. I didn’t even recognize him; his physical and mental health had declined tremendously in just six months. He had been hit by a city bus since the last time I spoke with him. He leaned heavily on a cane and looked like he had aged ten years. Again, I was verklempt. The only way to start helping the disenfranchised is by feeling their pain, listening to their aspirations, and accepting them as people. Wesley is so much more than his home at the street corner of Sam Cooper and Broad and the fact that he went to high school with Elvis. Everyone has a story to tell. But when your opportunity, voice, and even identity is stripped from your life—it’s hard for you to communicate with outsiders what you’re enduring on a daily basis. Wesley’s story is similar to Gale’s, Pat’s, Bill’s, Nub’s, Diane’s, Kate’s, Damian’s, and Marcus’s. All people that I drew. All people without homes. All citizens of Memphis. All individuals who need help. After the AP Art Show, I sold a few drawings from my portfolio and used the money to buy tents, backpacks, toiletries and dog supplies for the people in my drawings. Unfortunately, Wesley is still out there. Down on Beale one night I bought a classic Memphis bumper sticker: “No black. No white. Just the Blues.” I wish it were that simple.

Talking Love & Loss with Betsy Brackin
By Stephanie Beliles, photography courtesy of Betsy Brackin
etsy Brackin, known to some as “Arkansas Betsy,” is every bit the Renaissance woman; she is a new mother, a wife, and a breadwinning artist. Her success story is shrouded in hard work and humility, making her the perfect artist to feature in any Memphis art feature. And after a year of changes, for both better and worse, Betsy Brackin is still creating art that attracts every eye. Betsy grew up in West Memphis, and is forever grateful for being able to grow up admiring works at both the Brooks Museum and at the Dixon Gallery. As a child, she started taking art lessons as an alternative to sports. “There was not much art offered in West Memphis schools at the time, so there was a woman named Sally Ware who taught adult art classes in Marion (Arkansas), and she would let me come to them as a twelve-year-old.” As she grew into adulthood and her art, Betsy received full scholarship to Savanah College of Art and Design. However, after a few years of attending, made her way back to Memphis and graduated from the Memphis College of Art. Betsy explored and lived several places, including Colorado and Greece, and let the varying topography and cultures further influence her art. But Memphis has always been her home base, and the Delta is her biggest influence. Today, Betsy has settled in Memphis. She married Brown Burch, a local private chef, and had a daughter, Lucille. “I can stay in my studio until midnight, and Brown understands. I think marrying another artist has afforded us a great level of understanding.” Betsy’s work starts in the field. She begins doing watercolors on site (usually), and she sketches. She is, in fact, renowned for her composition. Throughout her travels, Betsy’s work has been primarily landscape, but other artists notice a major difference: “Betsy’s art from her adventures in places like Greece seem very mature, while her Delta work seems more childlike, and I like the childlike quality.” When asked to describe her art, Betsy relies on the sentiments of other artists. “A colleague of mine has described me as a ‘great designer’ because I design a canvas with bold colors and sharp composition. I am very composition-focused.” Indeed, Betsy’s art reads like a complete story, with an obvious major focus and beautiful, often pattern-like detailing leading to the focal point. It is a nostalgic quality in her Southern-inspired artwork that has won over many collectors. With no agent or talent manager to speak of, Betsy has organized all of her shows herself. She admits to some feelings of vulnerability when people look at her art, but she thoroughly enjoys the process. “I enjoy answering questions. It’s fun! I do not have a ton of artist friends, so it gives me the opportunity explain things to friends.” Her shows have drummed up such a huge response that her art is in big demand in Memphis, and you can see her pieces in several fine dining establishments,
58 / 4Memphis
offices and in the homes of major collectors. Betsy recalls being invited to a buyer’s home and seeing where he hung one of her pieces next to an original Picasso. “That is a huge honor,” the artist modestly replied. Although Betsy is widely recognized as the new big “Delta landscape artist,” she is expanding her works to being more abstract, and she is drawing on current life experiences. Baby Lucille is already influencing her mother’s art, forcing the new mother to step away from her art and allow the distraction to give her a new perspective during her process. And as life often goes, another twist continued to shape Betsy’s perspective: just five short weeks after baby Lucille was born, Betsy suddenly lost her mother, her biggest art supporter. “It is hard to put into words having your heart broken and, at the same time, overflowing with love. As an artist, you constantly question yourself. I can feel her encouragement still as I struggle to be a good artist, and more importantly a good mother.” Ever the creative, Betsy is open to transformation. Her studio is tacked with color and experimentation, including a very beautiful abstract hydrangea on which she recently started working. “I plan to experiment in my art practice not only with collage but also with oils. I am pretty much exclusively a water colorist and an acrylic painter. I would love to take the time to paint in oils. It is a very slow process but the intensity of color is breathtaking.” Betsy is excited for the future: “My end goal is to be able to continue to do what I am doing, and my art affording me the ability to keep progressing.” For more information on Betsy, her art and purchasing, visit BetsyBrackin.com.

MEMPHIS BROOKS MUSEUM OF ART
Here’s to Another
By Stephanie Beliles, photos courtesy of Brooks Museum
Hassan Hajjaj’s My Rock Stars installation
rooks Museum is celebrating its Centennial Year, and they are doing so by actually looking forward.
As the oldest, largest, and only major world art museum in Tennessee, the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art plays a leading role in the cultural development of the MidSouth, while also participating actively in the national arts ecology. Rooted in the Memphis community for 100 years, the Brooks Museum enriches lives of our diverse community through the Museum’s collection, exhibitions, educational programming and public programs. To celebrate this pivotal moment, the museum is planning a year that honors the past while launching a new century of public engagement that showcases the existing and new initiatives that make the Brooks Museum the place to be for art, art education, and creative place making. In 1913, local widow Bessie Vance Brooks donated $100,000 to the City of Memphis for the construction of a museum in honor of her late husband, Samuel Hamilton Brooks, and so the Brooks Memorial Art Gallery opened to the public in 1916. The Beaux Arts style building, inspired by the Morgan Library in New York City, was designed by James Gamble Rogers and constructed of Georgian marble. The museum was enlarged in 1955 to secure a gift of thirty-two objects from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, which was dependent upon sufficient gallery space to exhibit the artworks. To accommodate the continuing growth of the permanent collection, a further expansion was completed in 1973. Then in 1983, the institution’s name was changed to the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art, and in 1989 the Brooks separated from the city becoming fully private, although the city retains ownership of the building and the bulk of the collection acquired up to that time. The final, award-winning addition, which replaced the 1955 wing, opened in 1989. Through world class exhibitions and programs, the Brooks has become a center of cultural activity in Memphis. With the help of generous donors and supporters, the collection of nineteen paintings housed in a 8,200 square foot building in 1933 has grown to over 9,000 works of art in a 86,000 square foot building. 60 / 4Memphis
The Rotunda Project The Memphis Brooks Museum of Art continues to fulfill the purpose of its founder, Bessie Vance Brooks, as a “repository, conservatory, and museum of art . . . for the enjoyment, inspiration, and instruction of our people.” Executive Director Dr. Emily Ballew Neff has breathed new life into the museum in her first full year on staff, and visitors are already praising the facelifts and new additions to the Memphis’ institution. Much like the Brooks’ exhibits themselves, it is important to both recognize past accomplishments and celebrate what is in store for the future, and from what Brooks’ enthusiasts can tell, the museum can look forward to another 100 years of greatness and grandeur. Remember the massive installation with television screens in the entry rotunda? It is gone, and in its place is a breathtaking installation from artist Yinka Shonibare Mbe, titled Rage of the Ballet Gods. The series is contemplation on climate change through Greek mythological symbolism. “This installation allows room to explore, and it features beautiful works that you do not have to specifically know anything about. Does it matter if you know this piece is a commentary on climate change? Not necessarily, because you can enjoy its beauty and celebrate what it means to you,” explains Dr. Neff. The Rotunda Projects will include different installations from several artists and far-flung nationalities and cultures this centennial year. Mediums like textile, sculpture and even recyclable materials will make this provocative
Inside Art exhibit an exhilarating way to start your tour of the museum. Children are given an outlet for their energy in another new exhibit to the Brooks, called Inside Art. Inspired by the Brooks’ collection, the large-scale family gallery is full of handson activities for kids and parents alike. The completely interactive area is meant to inspire a new generation of art-lovers and selfexpressers. Kids are encouraged to play and describe what they see and feel as they go, and there is even a selfie station, complete with costumes and backdrops, all influenced by museum art! It is a wonderfully creative alternative to having kids clamor up and down the halls of the museum. In fact, it inspires them to look up at the art itself. Other installations include Brooks Outside, which incorporates outside works with the surrounding area and Overton community. The museum’s “botox” (as the staff refers to it) that these changes have given to the museum has encouraged groups like millennials to fully engage in exhibits like Hassan Hajjaj’s My Rock Stars installation. It is this theme of community, synergy and cultural acceptance that has pushed the Brooks into one of the more progressive museums of its time. “The experience you give to your visitors needs to reflect their evolving and diverse experiences and interests. This is not something you do overnight, but the idea of including art from all cultures is something we can really build on,” notes Dr. Neff.

HOT S UMMER N IGHTS
by Andy Savage, Highpoint Church, andysavage.com Marriage is meant for romance. But life gets busy, responsibilities increase and couples get distracted from the continual investment needed to keep the fires of romance burning hot. The answer is more simple than you think, schedule a date night! Dating your spouse is a proven way to keep couples connected and romance strong.
66 / 4Memphis
Andy’s date night advice: 1. Consistency is the key. Weekly date nights may not be possible for you, go for consistency! 2. Break the routine. Get out of the house, dress up, go somewhere new. Creativity is your ally. 3. Don’t talk about your kids or subjects that steal the focus away from your relationship.
4. Share the planning. Alternating who plans each date is a great way to think about and honor your spouse. 5. Spending lots of money is not necessary. The goal is to prioritize time, talk, and keep in touch with one another. Happy dating!
