Circuitous Succession Epilogue lll marks the third installment of the epic survey exhibitions curated by Jason Miller within the circa 1909 Scottish Rite Building. This series includes household-name artists from the southern region, as well as select artists of international renown. With each installment Miller works to unify the artworks in communion with the three story space of the Memphis Scottish Rite Building. This is a celebratory event and precursor to upcoming and continued renovations that will lead to the dedication of a permanent contemporary art gallery and masonic collections museum on the entry level floor near the grand dinning hall. The CSE shows have opened in October for the past three years–making it an annual fall event that is becoming an institution open free to our community at large.
The curator and many of the artists are on hand during the opening reception to speak with guests about their art and the aesthetic and conceptual relationship regarding placement within the space. Mediums range from photography to painting, and mediums combine to sculptural status within certain installations. All painters featured in Four Painters  Four Walls are included in the lineup of CSE3 and the two shows remain on view simultaneously for the serious viewer who wants to visit both shows in the two spaces that are in close proximity. Circuitous Succession Gallery is located at 500 S. 2nd Street, Memphis, TN 38103 and Masonic Contemporary is located at 825 Union Ave, Memphis, TN 38104.
Circuitous Succession Epilogue lll is the 50th exhibition curated by Jason Miller in Memphis, TN.
Jason Stout's painting "Shotgun Caesar Tempest" will be the torch brought from Circuitous Succession Gallery to Circuitous Succession Epilogue III as a bridge from "Four Painters  Four Walls" (curated exhibition 49) to CSIII at Masonic Contemporary aka Scottish Rite of Memphis (curated exhibition 50).
The exhibition features regional and international artists represented by the following galleries: Beth Edwards, David Lusk Gallery. Annabelle Meacham and Carl Moore, L Ross Gallery.
