This site gets zero funding from anywhere, it's run by me, Steve Lareau. I'm a local artist, and I've run this site for the past 6 years on my own time and my own dime, so if this place makes it easier for you to find what's going on, buy me a cup of coffee, or a beer.

I started this website back in June of 2008 to fill a need in the community. It’s grown from a handful of venues to dozens of places, which is mighty cool. But it’s become more and more difficult to keep up with the listings, so I’m turning it over to a new owner, who will be better equipped to manage these monthly listings. They’re the perfect people to pick up where I’ve left off, so expect to see more complete listings. With my health getting worse, it’s been more and more difficult to invest the time that was needed to grow and maintain this site over the last eight years.

I’ve met a lot of awesome artists by running this site over the years, and I’m constantly amazed at the variety of artists in this area. This area has a huge amount of talent, and I hope First Friday continues to grow under it’s new owners.  If you see me out and about on First Friday, say hello.

Wishing you all the best-

NEW! Artist of the Month

Tam

Meet Starr Cline.
We’re starting something new, the Artist of the Month, which you can find here.

If you don’t see a listing for an artist below,  don’t assume the venue doesn’t have an artist on display, they might not have gotten around to sending me the information on who’s on display at their venue. Also, the listing below are venues that have participated in the past, and may not have an artist being hosted that month. If you need to know for sure,  you’ll find their contact information below, so you can check to see if they’ve got more recent info on their own site. Sadly, only a small handful of people regularly send me information for the artists they have on display each month, and I just don’t have the time to hit dozens of websites searching each month.

On with this month’s openings!

Bliss Home is pleased to present new artwork by Knoxville artist, Lindsey Teague, for March’s First Friday!

Bliss Home, located at 29 Market Square, will host an opening reception on Friday, March 4th from 6pm to 9pm. Complimentary treats from Wild Love Bakehouse will be provided and Lindsey’s art will be featured for the month of March.

Lindsey Teague graduated from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville with a BFA in Graphic Design in 2009. She is a freelance graphic designer with over 7 years of experience in the design field. She has worked with clients on every level from billion dollar corporations to first time small business owners. She volunteers her photography skills, which have been awarded by AIGA, by teaching inner city children photography workshop classes. She gives back to her community and various non-profit organizations by donating art, design work, and photography. She uses her spare time to refine her fine art work which has been showcased in over 12 First Fridays in the Knoxville area and will be presented in the Dogwood Arts Festival this spring.

Lindsey’s March exhibit is inspired by what is meaningful in her life such as the people, places, and the history of this scruffy little city by the river. Lindsey’s art process begins with taking photographs then she vectors the images down and prints them on wood boards. Along with an interesting texture, the wood carries an organic tone which is representative of the surrounding natural landscape. Each board is stained with an acrylic based paint to add a little vibrancy and contrast.

Arts & Culture Alliance Presents “Three Views of Reality”

The Emporium to Host Art Exhibit Featuring Paintings by Local Firefighter and Two International Competition Finalists

(02/11/2016/Knoxville) – The Arts & Culture Alliance is pleased to present “Three Views of Reality”, a new exhibition showcasing nearly 50 paintings by Brandon Douglas, Catherine Haverkamp, and Seth Haverkamp. Husband and wife, Seth and Catherine Haverkamp, are both international competition finalists; in addition to painting, Brandon Douglas has worked as a firefighter in Knox County for thirteen years. The exhibition highlights these artists’ shared love of family, creation, and realism and will be displayed in the Emporium Center from March 4-24, 2016. Most of the works are for sale and may be purchased through the close of the exhibition. A public reception will take place on Friday, March 4, from 5:00-9:00 PM to which the public is invited to meet the artists and view their paintings. The First Fridayreception also features a Jazz Jam Session hosted by Vance Thompson and Friends from 7:00-9:00 PM in the Black Box Theatre. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres will be available.

 

In addition to working as a firefighter and paramedic in Knox County, Brandon Douglas has spent the last nine years honing his craft as a realist painter. For the past two years, he has furthered his techniques and skills under Seth Haverkamp’s guidance. Painting portraits is Douglas’ passion because the process allows him to identify with someone else, which enables him to analyze himself on a deeper level. His wife and young daughter inspire much of his work, and he hopes his paintings impart the beauty he witnesses every day. Douglas’ artwork has been featured in various art competitions and exhibits: Arts & Culture Alliance National Juried Exhibition in 2016 and 2015, where his “Self Portrait 2014” received Second Place; Dogwood Arts Regional Fine Art Exhibition; and Arts in the Airport. Several publications have showcased his work, including Professional Artist Magazine and E-Volved Magazine. For more information on Brandon Douglas, visit www.brandondouglas.net.

Like her husband Seth, Catherine Haverkamp’s four children inspire much of her artwork. While she took an eleven-year hiatus from professional painting to raise her children, she resumed her career as an artist three years ago. A self-taught artist, she honed her skills at Cleveland Institute of Art and Memphis College of Art. A gifted portrait and landscape painter, Haverkamp has received several notable awards, including Best of Show in the Arts & Culture Alliance National Juried Exhibition in 2015, an Award of Excellence in the Portrait Society of America’s International Portrait Competition in 2015, and finalist in the 2013 and 2014 Art Renewal Center International Art Competition.

Seth Haverkamp has received commissions from several notable clients, including actor Zach Galifianakis, Katharine Weymouth (former publisher of The Washington Post and CEO of Washington Post Media), and Carnegie Institute of Science. Before moving to Knoxville, he spent a year studying at Studio Incamminati in Philadelphia under renowned painter Nelson Shanks and then moved to Washington D.C. where he worked under celebrated artist Robert Liberace. Much of Haverkamp’s artwork reflects the complexity of childhood, highlighting both the innocence and profound introspection of a child’s mind. His wife and their four children are the inspiration behind many of his paintings. The Portrait Society of America’s International Portrait Competition awarded Haverkamp Best in Show in 2008, People’s Choice Award in 2013, and Exceptional Merit in 2015. He was also a finalist and received honors in the Artists Renewal Center International Painting Competition for 2011, 2013, and 2014. Several publications have showcased his artwork, including American Artist, International Art Magazine, Artists on Art, and Southwest Artists.

Emporium Center

The Arts & Culture Alliance is pleased to present a new exhibition by the Knoxville Watercolor Society at the Emporium Center from March 4-24, 2016. Most of the works are for sale and may be purchased through the close of the exhibition. A public reception will take place on Friday, March 4, from 5:00-9:00 PM to which the public is invited to meet the artists and view their paintings. The First Friday reception also features a Jazz Jam Session hosted by Vance Thompson and Friends from 7:00-9:00 PM in the Black Box Theatre. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres will be available.

In 1963, the Knoxville Watercolor Society began when the head of the University of Tennessee’s art department, Kermit (Buck) Ewing, invited watercolor artists exhibiting at the university’s McClung Museum to form the nucleus for the organization. The purpose of the organization is to educate the members as well as the community to the understanding of watercolor as a significant art form. Active membership is juried by the members and consists of Knoxville area artists who are currently active in the serious pursuit of aqueous painting. At present, there are 35 active members. Associate membership was added to provide other painters opportunity to benefit from the monthly programs and workshops.

Members exhibit with the Tennessee Watercolor Society, Watercolor USA and American Watercolor Society and consistently win regional, state and national awards. Annually, the organization provides a scholarship for a UT student who is majoring in watercolor painting, donates to the UT Ewing Gallery and maintains membership in the Arts and Culture Alliance of greater Knoxville. Additionally, grants have been made to the Arts Council of greater Knoxville, the Knoxville Museum of Art, the Tennessee Resource Center, and the Tennessee Art Association High School Scholarship Program.

Through the years, the area’s increasing interest in watercolor painting is a result in part due to the growth and development of the Knoxville Watercolor Society. For more information, please visit www.knxvillewatercolorsociety. com.

Bliss Home, located at 29 Market Square, will host an opening reception on Friday, February 5th, from 6pm to 9pm. Complimentary treats from Wild Love Bakehouse will be provided and Starr’s art will be featured for the month of February.

Ocean Starr Cline was born in San Francisco and raised in Alabama on an 11 acre farm. She moved to Knoxville almost 10 years ago after finishing her BA and MA in English Literature at the University of Montevallo in Montevallo, Alabama. After arriving in Knoxville, she immediately began showing and selling her work on Gay Street as well as Gatlinburg, in addition to her nationwide internet based sales.Cline is a self taught full-time artist. She has been painting for over 20 years. Her inspirations come directly from her experience living on a farm in the country and her education in English Literature. Many of her paintings are heavily textured, which causes them to change through the day as the light passes through a room. Cline’s February exhibit focuses on ideas of identity and the mix between the faces we would show to the world and the ones we hide even from ourselves.

Bliss Home, located at 29 Market Square, will host an opening reception on Friday, January 1st, from 6pm to 9pm. Complimentary treats from Wild Love Bakehouse will be provided and Starr’s art will be featured for the month of January.

Ocean Starr Cline was born in San Francisco and raised in Alabama on an 11 acre farm. She moved to Knoxville almost 10 years ago after finishing her BA and MA in English Literature at the University of Montevallo in Montevallo, Alabama. After arriving in Knoxville, she immediately began showing and selling her work on Gay Street as well as Gatlinburg, in addition to her nationwide internet based sales.Cline is a self taught full-time artist. She has been painting for over 20 years. Her inspirations come directly from her experience living on a farm in the country and her education in English Literature. Many of her paintings are heavily textured, which causes them to change through the day as the light passes through a room. Cline’s January exhibit focuses on ideas of identity and the mix between the faces we would show to the world and the ones we hide even from ourselves.

Opening Reception: Friday, December 4th, 2015 6pm to 9pm

 

Bliss Home is pleased to present Aurora by Knoxville artist Jane Nickels, for December’s FirstFriday. Bliss Home, located at 29 Market Square, will host an opening reception on Friday, December 4th from 6pm to 9pm. Complimentary treats from Wild Love Bakehouse will be provided and Jane’s art will be featured for the month of December.

Jane grew up in Europe, the USA and Asia attending high school at the United World College Of South East Asia, Singapore. Jane earned her BFA from Saint Mary’s College of Notre Dame, IN.

Inspired by international experiences during her formative years, Jane chooses to use pattern and color presented in a non figurative format to filter out cultural bias and the visual experience of region, religion and politics. Patterns and designs found in cultures and the natural world around the globe and crossing multiple eras have been collected and studied, these patterns then are deconstructed and reformed in a foam printing or line drawing process seeking to illustrate a universal aesthetic of pattern and color.

Aurora is a series of paintings that invite the viewer to explore optimism, anticipation and the energy of the aurora at dawn.

Arts & Culture Alliance Presents Photographs of Syrian Refugees by Dean Rice

(11/20/2015/Knoxville) – The Arts & Culture Alliance is pleased to present a new exhibition of recent photographs by Dean Rice of Knoxville from December 4-23, 2015 at the Emporium Center. These photographs show the faces of Syrian children who now live in the Zaatari Refugee Camp in the desert of Jordan and children who are orphaned living in Amman, Jordan. “We talk often of instability in the Middle East, and today we struggle with balancing our national security interests with our humanitarian desires to help the helpless,” says Dean Rice. “Through these photographs, however, we see the faces that can bring lasting stability, peace, friendship and gratitude.”

Dean Rice is chief of staff to Knox County Tim Burchett and also a member of the national advisory board of the Syrian Emergency Task Force (SETF). In the spring of 2015, he traveled to Jordan to visit the Zaatari refugee camp and meet with various Syrians in exile. The photographs of children in this exhibition are some of those he met. Rice is a Global Security Fellow with the University of Tennessee’s Institute for Nuclear Security and serves as an adjunct faculty member at the University of Tennessee’s College of Communication and Information. In 2013, Rice received the Society of Universal Dialogue’s Atlantic Institute “Peace Award” in recognition of his efforts to promote inter-cultural engagement and dialogue. His photographs and paintings have been displayed in multiple exhibitions. A permanent exhibition of his refugee photos is scheduled to open at the National Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC in January, 2016.

The exhibition will be on display in the Emporium Center, 100 S. Gay Street, in downtown Knoxville from December 4-23, 2015. An opening reception will take place as part of First Friday activities on December 4 from 5:00-9:00 PMwith complimentary hors d’oeuvres and chocolate fondue by the Melting Pot of Knoxville. The First Friday reception features music by Pistol Creek Catch of the Day from 5:00-7:00 PM. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM and Sundays, December 6 & 20, 3:30-6:30 PM. Please note, the Emporium will be closed December 24 –January 1 for the holidays. For more information, please contact the Arts & Culture Alliance at (865) 523-7543 or visit www.knoxalliance.com.

Bio:
“My artwork is an extension of my upbringing in Knoxville and the surrounding area. I think my best creations come from what is meaningful in my life such as the people, places, and the history of this scruffy little city by the river. All these things are represented in my work. I take photographs, vector the images down, and print them on wood boards. Along with an interesting texture, the wood carries an organic tone which I believe ties my artwork in to the surrounding natural landscape. I stain each board with an acrylic based paint to add a little vibrancy and contrast to an otherwise duller medium. I’m proud to showcase my local area and share what I love through my art.”

As you probably noticed, there wasn’t an update of listings for October. I wasn’t able to get them done due to a medical emergency that came up. Hopefully that’ll never happen again, sorry for the inconvenience.

When: Friday, November 6th, 2015 through the end of the month.

 

Bliss Home is pleased to present Local Nostalgia, by Knoxville artist Christi Shields, for November’s First Friday. Bliss Home, located at 29 Market Square, will host an opening reception on Friday, November 6th from 6pm to 9pm. Complimentary treats from Wild Love Bakehouse will be provided and Christi’s art will be featured for the month of November.

“People really connected with Christi’s art. This exhibit is a celebration of our Scruffy City and captures the artist’s love for Knoxville. We wanted to extend her exhibit so more Knoxvillians can experience her art,” notes Bliss Home manager, Sarah Naseman.

Growing up in the Knoxville area, Christi takes great pride in how far our “scruffy little city” has come.  Knoxville is growing by leaps and bounds through the interest and support of local businesses, farmers, products, music and art. Observing the movement to support “local” gives Christi personal justification for her inspiration to create work through a sentimental lens. Sometimes there is just no need to look further than your own “back yard.”

Local Nostalgia is a collection of work that highlights a few nostalgic moments reflecting Christi’s own experiences. It is intended to evoke a sense of nostalgia or feeling in the viewer through the use of local themes, bold complimentary colors and expressive brush strokes. Christi uses a very action oriented process with mixed media on wood support to create interest, depth, texture, movement and vintage flair.

See www.theemporiumcenter.com/ galleries.html for details.

(10/26/2015/Knoxville) – The Arts & Culture Alliance is pleased to present a new exhibition of traditional woodenware from Slovenia presented by the Ribnica Handicraft Centre with support from the Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia in Washington, DC and the Slovene Consulate in Knoxville. The exhibition of bowls, buckets, spoons, sieves, and other objects will be displayed in the Balcony gallery of the Emporium Center in downtown Knoxville fromNovember 6-25, 2015. The opening reception on Friday, November 6, is free and open to the public from 5:00-9:00 PM with complimentary hors d’oeuvres.

The Ribnica Valley lies in the southeast of the middle-European country of Slovenia. Wooden utensils and pottery have been the major products of Ribnica for perhaps 1,000 years thanks to the area’s abundant forest and clay resources. Until recently, nearly all people in the valley were engaged in agriculture, but many earned a major part of their living by means of their skills in making and trading useful household items of wood and clay.

Sieves are products that can’t be finished at home and then carried to the market; they simply take too much space. A much simpler solution was found by Ribnica crafts-people perhaps as early as five centuries ago: they packed side rims and bottoms separately and carried everything on their backs. When they sold a sieve, they finished it on the spot. Peddlers travelled from one fair, farm, or village to another, looking for buyers. Realizing that other wooden products would sell well too, they started exchanging goods with other local craftsmen. Soon they were able to complete their packs with all kinds of objects, trading those as well. The name ‘kroönjar’ came from the packs they carried (‘kroönje’ in the Slovenian language means “tree-top”). The peddlers carried these packs, as tall as two men, on their shoulders; the packs functioned as a portable display of everything that was for sale. Visible from a distance, the packs advertised the peddlers’ purpose without a need for words.

Sieve-making, in combination with the privilege to move freely across wide territories trading in woodenware and clay vessels, had an enormous economic and spiritual impact on average inhabitants of the Ribnica Valley. The traders brought back innovative ideas to the villages. Ribnica also gained notoriety as a center of humor, because to gain and retain customers, the peddlers were accomplished jokesters and raconteurs. To this day, Ribnica villagers are thought to be natural comedians.

The exhibition of traditional woodenware from Slovenia will be on display at the Emporium Center, 100 S. Gay Street for the month of November. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM and special hours November 6-8. For more information, please contact the Arts & Culture Alliance at (865) 523-7543, or visit www.theemporiumcenter.com.

About the Ribnica Handicraft Centre

The tradition of woodenware in the Ribnica Valley is maintained today by the Ribnica Handicraft Centre and by the annual autumn Ribnica Wood Fair, one of the largest in this region of Europe. The Handicraft Centre holds classes on the various craft skills and aims to educate local citizens and the public about the traditional and contemporary cottage industry heritage of the valley. Continuing research on the roots of this heritage is important to the education mission. The target groups are young children, middle and high school students, artists, tourists and people simply interested in learning.

Bio:
Asa McEwan began painting approximately twenty years ago, when a friend gave her four small tubes of oil paints in primary colors. She immediately began painting and states that in the beginning she would paint for eighteen hours at a time. “The first thing I painted were yellow stars on the roof of my house,’ she says with a laugh. Then I bought more paint and painted everything that didn’t move. I would paint for twenty hours at a time. Sometimes my cigarette would fall into the painting and I would just leave it. Strange faces of women began to appear in the painting so just began painting them in. It was like painting by number. That’s how my series of paintings ended up in a downtown gallery, in galleries in Asheville, Atlanta, and Knoxville and her paintings have traveled as far as Africa, where two friends that she met through her painting live and with whom she has maintained contact ever since.
Ms. McEwan’s paintings will be shown at the Birdhouse Art Gallery through September.

Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to Kate Moore’s First Friday, Bliss Home is pleased to Kate’s exhibit to September for First Friday!

“People really responded to Kate’s art. This exhibit celebrates East TN which resonated with everyone who attended First Friday last month. We wanted to extend her exhibit so more Knoxvillians can experience his art,” notes Bliss Home manager, Sarah Naseman.

Bliss Home, located at 29 Market Square, will host an opening reception on Friday, September 4th from 6pm to 9pm. Complimentary treats from Wild Love Bakehouse will be provided and Kate’s art will be featured for the month of September.

Starting with a simple love for crayons, Kate decided from a young age she needed to build her life around art. Kate grew into an artist by exploring different mediums, and dabbling in painting and drawing, until she found her own voice as an artist in graphic design. From custom wedding invitations to small business branding, Kate has spent the last seven years perfecting her graphic design skills at her studio, Kate Moore Creative, located on the 100 block of Gay Street.

Kate’s September exhibit, The Lake House, celebrates the gorgeous lakes, rivers and mountains of East Tennessee which make her appreciate her home.

FLAT TOP is a collaborative site-specific installation at Striped Light gallery, designed and built by Barron Hall, Robmat Butler and Jason Brown. Using architectural elements inspired by rooftops, the trio of artists has created a series of sculptural platforms to give viewers a sense of elevation as if they are walking on rooftops. The interactive installation mimics the buildings in the Central Avenue neighborhood in form and material. The project has both indoor and outdoor components, and will feature musicians performing on top of the sculpture at the opening and closing receptions on First Friday September 4 and October 2. The opening Reception will be from 6 to 10pm.

Word Paintings by Robert H. Thompson will be on view at the downtown Knoxville Market Square Tomato Head from September 7th through October 4th, 2015.

Mr. Thompson buys prints of landscape pictures from thrift stores and flea markets and paints words on them.  The process is in the manner of the artist Wayne White, although Mr. Thompson aims for his own surrealistic style with words carefully chosen and carefully painted to look like realistic yet dreamlike physical parts of the landscape and to invite experiencing the meaning of the words in new light.   All proceeds from sales will be donated to Ijams Nature Center.  For more information, please contact the artist at t3andp@bellsouth.net.
Jessica Payne will be on view at The Gallery Tomato Head in West Knoxville from September 8th through October 5th, 2015.  For more information, please contact the artist atinfo@jessicapayneart,com.

If you don’t see a listing for an artist below,  don’t assume the venue doesn’t have an artist on display, they might not have gotten around to sending me the information on who’s on display at their venue. Also, the listing below are venues that have participated in the past, and may not have an artist being hosted that month. If you need to know for sure,  you’ll find their contact information below, so you can check to see if they’ve got more recent info on their own site. Sadly, only a small handful of people regularly send me information for the artists they have on display each month, and I just don’t have the time to hit dozens of websites searching each month.

On with this month’s openings!

The Arts & Culture Alliance and the ETSU Slocumb Galleries are pleased to present a new exhibition entitled “Further East” by the faculty and staff of the Department of Art & Design at East Tennessee State University. “Further East” features contemporary work in various media by Johnson City-area artists David Dixon, M. Wayne Dyer, Mira Gerard, Travis Graves, Mindy Herrin, Amanda Hood, Vanessa Mayoraz, Patricia Mink, Catherine Murray, Peter Pawlowicz, Kelly Celeste Porter, Kevin Reaves, Andrew Scott Ross, Katie Sheffield, Ralph Slatton, Mike Smith, and Dawn Marie Tipton and will be displayed at the Emporium Center in downtown Knoxville from August 7-28, 2015. An opening reception will take place on Friday, August 7, from 5:00-9:00 PM and features a Jazz Jam Session hosted by Vance Thompson and Friends from7:00-8:45 PM in the Black Box Theatre. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres will be available and chocolate fondue will be provided by the Melting Pot of Knoxville.

 

For the third year in a row, the Arts & Culture Alliance is proud to partner with a community-based art gallery in the Southeast for the purpose of promoting local artists within each community. In June, the Tipton Gallery displayed a selection of work by 35 Knoxville-area artists in their gallery space at 126 Spring Street in downtown Johnson City. In exchange, the Alliance now presents this exhibition of works by ETSU faculty and staff at the Emporium. “Similar to the Alliance, the Tipton Gallery promotes and supports regional artists through rotating exhibitions and educational opportunities for the community,” says Liza Zenni, Executive Director of the Arts & Culture Alliance. “While many of our artist members are well known here in the Knoxville area, we wanted Johnson City to be exposed to their work, and we look forward to Johnson City artists receiving extra exposure here in Knoxville.”

 

The works chosen to travel to Knoxville include the evocative figurative paintings by Department of Art & Design chair Mira Gerard, whose work recently showed in the New American Paintings #118, as well as mixed media paintings by Amanda Hood, Dawn Marie Tipton, and new graphic design faculty Kelly Celeste Porter. Digital work by fellow graphic design faculty David Dixon and M. Wayne Dyer, as well as work in typography by art historian Peter Pawlowicz and photographs of civil war re-enactors by Katie Sheffield, are juxtaposed with hand drawn work by extended media artist Vanessa Mayoraz, paper-cut installations by Andrew Scott Ross, and prints by Ralph Slatton. Also featured in the exhibition are encaustic works by Catherine Murray, former chair and key organizer for the installation of public sculptures in downtown Johnson City. 3-D works in the exhibition include work by Dogwood Festival awardee Mindy Herrin, metalsmith Kevin Reaves, and environmental bronze sculptures by Travis Graves. A layered quilt by nationally renowned fiber artist Patricia Mink and the Appalachian rural landscape captured by prominent photographer, USA Fellow and Tennessee Arts Commission awardee Mike Smith, complete the exhibition that represents the diversity of art practice in the Johnson City area in Northeast TN region, just further east of Knoxville.

 

The Art Galleries under the Department of Art & Design at the ETSU College of Arts and Sciences promote the understanding and appreciation of visual arts in support of the academic experience and the cultural development surrounding communities. Their mission is to provide venues for and access to contemporary art by organizing innovative exhibitions that promote artistic excellence, diversity, collaborations and creative thinking.

“Further East” will be on display at the Emporium Center, 100 S. Gay Street. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM and select Sundays 3:30-6:30 PM. Additional special hours are posted atwww.theemporiumcenter.com/visit.html
