Artist’s Reception for Terry Lynn at Southside Gallery Thursday, May 10 Celebrates New Body of Work
“Homecoming,” a body of work featuring new paintings and collages by Terry Lynn is currently on display at Southside Gallery. The exhibition will be up through May 23. An artist’s reception is scheduled for Thursday, May 10, from 5–8 pm. Lynn works and lives in Memphis, Tennessee. His work has been exhibited throughout the United States and internationally. In addition to his career as an independent artist, Lynn has worked collaboratively with his twin brother, Jerry. The two brothers’ work is exhibited under the moniker “Twin.” This is Lynn’s second solo exhibition at Southside, his first since 2015.
The new works in “Homecoming” advance a narrative from Lynn’s previous Southside exhibition, “Beyond the Fields.” There are a number of abstract and figurative works on display that tell the story of the black experience, past and present—rural and urban. The exhibition addresses contemporary topics of symbolism and identity as well, including the debate on Civil War monuments.
