Art by Design is a fundraiser for ArtsMemphis that helps support local arts by bringing local interior designers together to create “vignettes”.
This year one of my favorite local designers Carmeon Hamilton of Nubi Interiors was one of the 17 participating designers. To say that her vignette “A Seat At The Table” was AMAZING is an understatement. It spoke to her being the first African American designer to participate.
The Yeezus piece by Nate Renner was such an unexpected piece but it was a perfect fit.
There was also a live watercolor illustration demonstration with Kris Keys. Kris is a fashion illustrator and print designer.
I can’t talk about the Art by Design event without mentioning Andrea Fenise. Andrea not only served on the steering committee but you could see her design influence at every vignette. Her walking tour “Turn Your Room into a Wardrobe” combined fashion & design. She also moderated the panel Design Is One. This was a discussion about the collaboration between architecture, fashion and interior design.
