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!

Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to Stacey Fletcher’s March First Friday, Bliss Home is pleased to extend Stacey’s March exhibit to April for First Friday!
“We’re thrilled by the enthusiastic reaction that Stacey’s show received at its unveiling and throughout the month. We wanted to extend her exhibit so more Knoxvillians can experience her art,” notes Bliss Home manager, Sarah Naseman.
Bliss Home, located at 29 Market Square, will host an opening reception on Friday, April 3rd from 6pm to 9pm. Complimentary baked goodies from Old City Java will be provided and Stacey’s art will be featured for the month of April.
Stacey Fletcher received a Master of Fine Arts degree in Painting and Drawing from The University of Tennessee in 2003, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Valdosta State University in 2000. She has exhibited nationally and internationally in many individual, group, and juried exhibitions. This includes being awarded the honor of participating in the 2005 Pienkow International Artist Workshop in Poland. Stacey has taught for The University of Tennessee since 2000 as a graduate assistant, an assistant professor, as well as through the personal and professional extended education program. She lives, paints, and teaches in Knoxville, TN.
As a cathartic painter, Stacey’s work expresses emotions and frustrations that would otherwise be hard to express verbally. They seem abstract at first glace to the viewer, but have some sense of childhood imagery disguised among the colorful layers. Her work is fresh with vibrant lively colors, with layered metaphors of herself and others contrasted with the chaotic approach of the energetic marks.

Beaumont Magnet Academy is so excited to announce the details of our 3rd Annual Beaumont Rocks Concert!
Beaumont Rocks is Beaumont Magnet Academy’s flagship fundraiser, which aims to make arts education at the Academy exceptional. The funds raised are used to purchase modern sound equipment, musical instruments, an etching press, easels and more.
Last year’s Beaumont Rocks concert made an immediate impact on all our students. Beaumont is a high poverty school and the proceeds from last year’s fundraiser made arts education a reality for these families. Students do better when school is engaging, and the arts encourage a fun learning environment!
Beaumont Rocks will feature student performances by Latin Music Ensemble, The Pinklets and The Hat Trick. The Wild Things will headline the event.
Student performances feature students who have come together at Beaumont. Beaumont Rocks welcomes back The Pinklets who played their inagural gig at the first Beaumont Rocks. Since their debut, the Pinklets have performed at Dogwood Arts Festival, Vestival, WDVX, the Girl’s Rock Academy and Planet Exchange. The Pinklets are a 4-piece original pop rock band. Their members are three sisters and their best friend who met at Beaumont Elementary.
The Hat Trick
The Hat Trick was formed in late 2014 and features Ian Scott on guitar and vocals, Jackson Novinger on bass and James Wimmer on drums. James has been playing his drums – named Chuzzle Fuzz- for over a year, and counts John Bonham as his favorite drummer. Ian has been playing his guitar – Quincy Vin Hoover – for 6 months, and cites Bono and John Lennon as his inspirations on guitar. And Jackson has been thumping his bass, Jessica, for a year. While they disagree on their reasons for rocking out – James wants to be famous, Ian wants to inspire people and Jackson just loves Rock N’ Roll – they all agree that their first album will definitely be named “Maybe”.
The Wild Things
The Wild Things are a 4-piece rock and roll outfit from Knoxville, TN. The Wild Things will bring The Beatles, 60s pop and raucousness to the concert.
