im truly sorry for your loss, & other PLEASANTRIES: New Work by Kristen Rambo @ MCA Gallery at Playhouse on the Square
Sep 24 all-day

grief: noun
deep sorrow, especially that caused by someone’s death.

It is difficult to talk about my work without talking about my grief. My paintings are emotive abstractions that play with the female form, florals, and texture. They often happen in wild moments after weeks of preparing (and avoiding).

I lost a lot of my family in recent years, and I have seen a lot of suffering and a lot of sudden loss. I have also fallen in love, traveled the country, and grown deeply and truly as a person. All of this goes into the work. It cannot be contained.

Kristen Rambo is a painter living and working in Memphis, TN. She graduated with honors from the Memphis College of Art and is now working out of Art Factory in the historic Cooper-Young neighborhood.

A reception for the exhibit will be held on September 22 from 5-7pm.

ThyCa Memphis – Monthly Support Group Meeting @ The Salvation Army Kroc Center
Sep 25 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

ThyCa Memphis seeks to support all thyroid cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers in the local area so that no person affected by this disease goes on this journey alone. ThyCa Memphis meets the last Monday of every month from 6:00 to 7:30 pm. When the meeting date falls on a holiday, the group meets on the Monday prior. Nothing discussed at a support group should be considered as a replacement for a doctor’s care. We do not give medical advice. We do share support and our own experiences. We are each ultimately responsible for our own care.
