Art tells a story. It communicates like a language to display our ideas, message, and insights. Creating and experiencing art can evoke various feelings, from rest to excitement. Imagine music in 3-D. The art of creating provides a release and a place to contemplate or engage with our environment. It provides solace for healing and preserves our history and values deeply rooted in our culture.
Art is a reservoir of enrichment to share. That’s why we participate in Art by Design. Carlton Edwards continues the support of local artists and craftsmen for these reasons. Art by Design 2019 was a fabulous benefit and raised $200,000+ for local artists groups. We are pleased to participate in this charitable event alongside our talented design colleagues.
Our 2019 Art by Design vignette features a unique outdoor lounge celebrating architecture, interiors, and landscape all in one. The work of local Memphis sculptors John McIntire and Wayne Edge inspired our vignette which bridges Modern and traditional elements and materials. In keeping with the celebration of local artists and craftsman, we commissioned custom furniture for lounging, dining, and entertaining.
We engage local artists for each home to make it unique while supporting their beautiful interpretations. If you like what you see, contact us for design, custom furniture, art, and sculpture.
