For nearly a decade, artist Pettus Mitchell has traveled around the United States gleaning inspiration for his future works as well as displaying his art at local festivals and art galleries. His paintings run the gamut from historical portraits of the African Americans migration north in the 1940s to their current return to the modern south. Some of his pieces are inspired by cultural phenomena specific to the late 20th century, such as the popularity of video games and the rise of the digital era. Pettus himself is an accomplished graphic artist; he is also a CGI animator. His work is prominently featured at the Center for Southern Folklore and he is a mainstay at the Center’s annual Memphis Music & Heritage Festival. Mitchell made his first appearance at First Saturday Arts Market in March 2011.

CRB Artworks by Cindy Babbitt
Painting is a hobby I started a few years ago in grad school as a break from reading and writing. As I’ve learned to love the process and product of working with acrylics, my compositions have evolved from what I whimsically call “doodles” and “non-talking heads.” Continue reading

With her love of nature, it is only fitting that Michelle's designs are a direct reflection of nature. Her pieces combine the elements and textures of nature with the use of natural stone, fine silver, sterling and copper often combined with found natural objects like acorns and twigs. Michelle says, "It can happen anywhere. A uniquely shaped leaf, a twig, or an acorn on the ground and I am transported to a place in my mind that I cannot ignore. Until that piece of nature finally is transformed into a piece of jewelry I obsess." “How do I make this wearable art, give it movement, balance, a new life? Should it be a fantastical piece or a piece that can be lived in everyday. I challenge myself to find a way to design a work that eternalizes that fleeting perfect moment in nature with a stylish timelessness.
Tatting is rich in history and believed to be first used by ancient mariners. Often called the art of knotted lace. It is truly a delicate art form, almost lost and forgotten but now I am trying to revive it in my own special way.

The majority of my work is pen on paper. Their abstract, surreal, sweeping lines from nature often contast against structured lines of society. The multifarious detail is complicated and unique.
