Previous Exhibit - 1967 Mississippi Hill Country Blues: Photographs
by George Mitchell
"The American Delta" is
an exploration of modern Delta Blues
culture as seen through the eyes
of a young woman. Kayzakian-Rowe's
work is a high-contrast, gritty and
grainy tribute to the men and women
bleeding their souls into the blues.
Opening reception held in the main gallery on Tuesday,
April 15, 2008 of Brandy Kayzakian-Rowe's "The American
Delta," featuring her paintings and photography.
Shot completely in analog, "The
American Delta" looks as if
it had just been found in a dusty
trunk stowed away at the turn of
the century. Accompanying the photography
will be a selection of Brandy's vibrant
acrylic and watercolor paintings
featuring both fictional and actual
bluesmen and a very special Clarksdale
resident. Focusing on live performance,
local heroes and southern landscapes,
this collection is distinctively
the American Delta.
