Dixon Gallery & Gardens

The Dixon Gallery & Gardens - 4339 Park, Memphis 761-5250. "The Artful Teapot". exhibition examining the teapot as an inventive vehicle for artists. Until September 24th 2006
What makes this collection so significant is the magic of the teapot. It holds clues to social station, to manners and protocols, to matters of gender, to fashion and stylization in popular art. It is stained with the blood of the West’s insatiable thirst for the fragrant leaves, and also graced by civilized, charming social rituals. All of this reference is compacted into a small pot with a handle and spout.
