shown at material art space

founded by hamlett dobbins and julie meiman in late 2004, material is a 19′ x 16′ exhibition space set in the storefront on broad avenue in the binghamton neighborhood of memphis. taking the name from montessori learning tools, material was built to provide emerging and established artists with an intimate, clean space in which to share their work with memphis’ growing arts community. the programming consists of monthly shows as well as artists’ lectures in connection with local colleges and universities. material has served as a space for young artists to have their first shows, as well as a place for established local and regional artists to test new ideas in a public forum. in addition to serving local artists, material hosted artists from birmingham to tokyo. in the summer of 2013 material had its last exhibition. many thanks to the artists and the members of the great arts community in memphis for years of support.
