Downtown Vibes: A rising art scene in downtown Knoxville


Art has taken over downtown Knoxville-- from murals on city walls to sculptures dotting public spaces, you can't hardly go anywhere downtown without an artsy influence.

Knoxville — Like the opening scene of the Wizard of Oz, downtown Knoxville has transformed from a quiet and gray area to a vibrant and colorful place to be, thanks to a rising art scene in the city.

One place grateful for that is the Art Market Gallery.

“Well the art scene in downtown Knoxville has really become super exciting, at one time it was basically non-existent, and when we first opened the gallery 12 years ago it really was a struggle," Marie Marriet, an oil artist at the gallery, said.

By the looks of it, you would never know it. There’s not a blank wall nor empty table in the gallery. Each piece of art is made locally by East Tennessee artists.
