First things first:

I don’t do bookings.

I don’t do scheduling.

I don’t organize shows.

I’m simply listing the artists on display each month.

Please don’t ask, use this site as a directory to contact venues directly.

There are numerous things going on each first Friday that tie into the First Friday event. Food and drink specials at restaurants, special sales, drum circles, musicians playing on the square, etc.

I don’t list these things,  I only list art openings on this site. You can find numerous places to promote your tie in, like the Metro Pulse website, Market Square District association, etc.  I’m a one man show, I run this website on my own time and my own dime,  for the sake of the art community. It’s grown a great deal, and I can only dedicate so much time every month doing these listings, and quite frankly, I just can’t take on anything else, sorry to say.

Feel free to use the information on this site to contact the venues for booking your show.

To send me a listing, please send me something ready to go, formatted like the listings you see on this site.

I will cut and paste whatever you send, without editing, so take the time to send this to me in a form that I can easily use.

  • Venue name, street address, phone number, website if you have one
  • For opening night on First Friday, what are the hours the opening will be going on?
  • Artist(s) name, type of artwork on display (painting, sculpture,etc) , artist(s) website, short bio or statement if they want that listed.
  • Special info, like live music, special hours, etc.

Use the contact form below for general stuff, but if you have a listing that needs to be added, send it to update@knoxvillefirstfriday.com

 

Now, before you get in touch with me, did you see the very top of this page? Here it is again in case you missed it.

I don’t do bookings.

I don’t do scheduling.

I don’t organize shows.

I’m simply listing the artists on display each month.

 

If you contact me, asking to be booked, you’re going to get ignored. I can’t be any more clear than big letters telling you that I don’t do booking of any sort.  Please use this site as a directory to contact venues directly for booking.
Thanks.
