Featured Artists April 2012

Spring has sprung at Art Market Gallery!   Please join us for refreshments and live music performed by UT Cello Studio at the gallery this Friday from 5:30-9 pm.  This reception marks the opening of two events at the gallery.

The Annual Members Auction runs April 6-15.  A  Dogwood Arts Festival Featured Art Event, this silent auction of over 50 pieces of original art and fine craft will give gallery visitors an opportunity to bid on these items for a chance to buy them at a fraction of their value.

Our Featured Artists Exhibit will present recent works by Marilyn Avery Turner and Morgan Fitch.

Marilyn Avery Turner, who holds a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, will be exhibiting a collection of her recent monoprint/Chine-colle works.  Created with oil-based inks on rice paper, these hand-pulled prints are one-of-a-kind artworks, each of which required multiple passes through a press to achieve the finished print.

Sculptor Morgan Fitch welds various metal found objects together to create whimsical animal and humanoid forms.  He’s delighted when observers of his sculpture find humor in it and appreciates their efforts to identify the multitude of old tools and utensils incorporated into his works.

 This Saturday, April 7, gallery artist-member and woodworker Janis Proffitt will hold a live demonstration in the lobby of the gallery.  Other artist demonstrators in April are:   painter Victoria Simmons on Saturday the 14th, jeweler Sissy Caldwell on Saturday the 21st, painter Lil Clinard on Saturday the 28th and painter Brenda Mills on Sunday the 29th.

 Be sure to stop by the gallery during the Rossini Festival’s Italian Street Fair on Saturday, April 28.  The gallery will be open until 7 pm for your convenience.

Member owned and operated by over 60 regional artists, Art Market Gallery is located at 422 South Gay Street in Knoxville next to the Downtown Grill & Brewery.  Gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 11am-6pm & Sunday 1-5 pm.  For more information, call 865-525-5265, visit or join us on facebook:
