Hugh Adair Bailey
Born Sept. 13, 1934
Passed away on Jan. 7, 2020
Hugh was a charter member of the Art Market Gallery. His whimsical animal sculptures and his watercolor/ink illustrations were expressions of his unique observations of the natural world. He had such a cheerful, humorous demeanor and loved sharing stories and his artistic talents with everyone. We have lost a kind and gentle soul.

Art Market Gallery Artists recently got together and created Cork Ornaments that they will sell to benefit the Community School of the Arts in Downtown Knoxville. Each ornament is hand made by an Art Market artist. The ornaments will be on sale through the month of December and all proceeds will go to benefit CSA, an after school program which teaches all artistic disciplines to undeserved and at risk children and teens five days a week.
The gallery, which is at 422 S Gay Street is open 11 AM to 6 PM Monday through Sat and 1 - 6 PM on Sundays. (ArtMarketGallery.net). Our next creative day is Nov 4, 2019.

The Art Market Gallery (AMG) is comprised of painters, glass artists, printmakers, photographers, woodworkers, potters, fabric artists, jewelers, weavers, and sculptors. Locals and visitors to Knoxville can see this exceptional talent on display Tuesday through Sunday at our downtown Knoxville gallery. What a lot of folks are unaware of is that our artists are often recognized and distinguished for their exemplary artwork outside of AMG.
Lil Clinard, Brenda Mills, and Genie Even, three talented watercolor artists at AMG, were recently recognized by their peers and received awards at the opening reception of the 2014 34th Juried Exhibition of the Tennessee Watercolor Society.
Each year, members of the Art Market Gallery get together and create Christmas ornaments to be sold to benefit the Community School of the Arts. The School offers exposure to fine arts education and provides mentoring and guidance to East Tennessee’s young people.
