Featured Artists September 2012

Please join us at the gallery for light refreshments and live music performed by violinist Elise Van Patten at the gallery’s First Friday reception on September 7th from 5:30-9 pm. This reception marks the opening of our September Featured Artist Exhibit, watercolors by Mary Ann Valvoda of Loudon and mixed media sculpture by Jen Hamilton of Knoxville.

Award-winning painter Mary Ann Valvoda will be exhibiting a collection of her recent works. Mary Ann studied at the Cleveland Institute of Art and is a Signature Member of the Ohio and Tennessee Watercolor Societies as well at the Knoxville and Southern Watercolor Societies. In her more recent works, she is “excited about using pigments to flow across the paper, yet trying to maintain control of the final appearance of the painting.” She has works in private collections throughout the US.

Artist Jen Hamilton creates her mixed media sculptures from recycled objects such as bicycle parts, dismantled electronics, colored wire and found scraps of metal and plastic. She says that she really enjoys “reusing objects from the waste stream, and transforming them into objects of value and desire.”

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 Tuesday-Saturday, 11 am – 6 pm and Sunday 1-5 pm. For more information, call 865-525-5265, visit or join us on facebook:
