Movies and more -- highly recommended

Delta Axis offers a number of programs and events in the next two weeks.

This week we have Indie Memphis Micro Cinema Club on Wednesday, May 10 at 7:30 at Power House (45 GE Patterson between Main & Front streets). This month we are screening the following films:
She She She She's A Bombshell, by Ben Levin
Shock and Awe, by Chase Palmer
Slumlord, by Justin Monroe and Daniel Sullivan
Life or Breath, by Steve Desmond
Lucky, by Nash Edgerton
A Higher Agency, by Oliver Cheetham
Admission is free – so is the popcorn!

On Thursday, May 11 from 6:00-7:00 we have this month’s Artist Studio Visit with Hamlett Dobbins. Please join us for a light reception and discussion with Dobbins about his work in his Binghampton home and studio at 2553 Broad. This program is free to Delta Axis members and $5 for non-members. Advance registration is recommended – please call 494-6543 or email

This Friday, May 12 from 6:00-8:00 we will have a closing reception for “Pattern Recognition: A Ted Faiers Retrospective” at Power House. This exhibition features 15 paintings by the late-Memphis artist from the 1950s-1970s. A coinciding opening reception for an installation of Faiers’s prints dating from 1952-55 will be at Memphis College of Art’s downtown gallery, on the street at 431 S. Main. We will release a catalog of this exhibition at these receptions.

Lastly, you should soon receive an invitation to our first annual DADA Ball – a masquerade party fundraising event to support all of Delta Axis’s programs: Power House, Indie Memphis, and Delta Axis @ Marshall Arts. This event will be Saturday, May 20 from 8:00 pm – 12 midnight at Power House. Admission is $20 for Delta Axis members, $25 for non-members. This event, inspired by the DADA art movement of the post-World War I era, is a celebration of creativity with an art installation, and a variety of performances throughout the evening, including music, djs, film, spoken word, and art. Costumes are suggested, but not required. It is sure to be a spectacular evening – I hope to see you there!
