Featured Artists November 2012

Enjoy complimentary refreshments and live acoustic and a cappella music performed by the Tennessee Valley Accidentals this Friday November 2nd at the gallery from 5:30-9 pm. This First Friday reception marks the opening of our Featured Artists Exhibit, a presentation of recent works by Lisa Kurtz and Joe Parrott, both of Knoxville.

Lisa Kurtz, who holds a BA and MA in Ceramics from the University of Louisville, will be exhibiting a collection of her recent works in clay. Her pieces, made with white stoneware clay, are a fusion of traditional forms with contemporary touches and are completely functional. Lisa is a member of several regional craft guilds.

Joe Parrott, an award-winning cityscape and landscape painter, renders his subject matter masterfully in oils in a thick, impasto style. The lights, shadows and reflections that he observes in the landscape are what inspire him to paint. His works are in many public and private collections.

In November and December, the gallery will offer artisan-made ornaments for sale to benefit the Community School of the Arts, a non-profit program that provides free instruction in music, visual arts, modern dance and drama to children from underserved areas of Knox county.

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