AVA Hosts Works From Knoxville Arts And Culture Alliance Members Show

Thursday, December 20, 2012

The Association for Visual Arts will host an exhibition of select works from the Knoxville Arts and Culture Alliance Members Show, the largest annual exhibition of local artists in the Greater Knoxville area. The mix of two- and three-dimensional works created within the last two years encompasses a wide variety of media such as oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, mixed media, photography, and sculpture from Knoxville based artists who are all members of the Arts & Culture Alliance.  

This exhibition at AVA was made possible by a partnership between AVA and the Knoxville Arts and Culture Alliance in which the two organizations swap their respective member shows. AVA’s Juried Members Show, held Dec. 4-22, will travel to Knoxville’s Emporium Center in June 2013 as a part of this exchange.

The exhibition will be on display in AVA’s Main Gallery from Jan. 4-Feb. 22. The opening reception will take place Jan. 4 from 5:30-8 p.m., and is free and open to the public.
