Artist Receptions

"Dwayne's Genius Hasn't Killed Me Yet"

When: Fri., July 10, 8-10 p.m. 2009

Opening reception for self-portraits on paper by recent Memphis College of Art graduate Michael “Opie” Roy.

According to the artist: “Studio classes push each student toward finding visual signatures, their own unique ‘genuis.’ In these portraits, I wanted to deteriorate the artist mythology through a sort of physical purging. I use the myth of artist because it’s immediate to my life, but I try to open the work up to tackle a wide range of social mythologies here in America.”
