Tip Jar

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.

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!

Brian’s June exhibit will reflect his fascination with all of the different architectural styles that Knoxville has to offer. Brian’s focal point for this show will highlight historic churches, which capture the diversity in architectural features.

The Arts & Culture Alliance is pleased to present the third annual Knoxville Photo 2015, a juried exhibition featuring selected works from 32 artists throughout the region. Knoxville Photo was developed to provide a forum for photographers to compete on a national scale and display their work. The exhibition encompasses photographs depicting all subjects and genres, including streetscapes, cityscapes, landscapes, environmental portraiture, portraits, abstracts, and more, and will be displayed in the Emporium Center from June 5-27, 2015. Most of the works are for sale. A public reception will take place as part of First Friday activities on Friday, June 5, from 5:00-9:00 PM with a brief ceremony at 6:00 PM in which over $1,000 in cash awards will be announced. The First Friday reception also features a Jazz Jam Session hosted by Vance Thompson & Friends from 7:00-8:45 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.

 

David Simchock served as juror for the exhibition and viewed images from more than 85 artists to select the exhibition. “What a treat to be invited to jury the Knoxville Photo 2015 exhibition,” he said. “The diversity in subject matter was matched by the impressive technical and compositional quality of the images, making it a challenging task to narrow down the field. Though I was particularly drawn to many of the ‘Human Experience’ submissions, the other three categories were represented with creativity and impact. Kudos to all of the photographers who entered work.”

 

A native of New Jersey, David J. Simchock has lived and traveled overseas for many years and, since returning to the States in 2002, quickly established himself as a reputable freelance photographer and artist. His images have been published in major publications around the world, and he has exhibited his work in numerous galleries and venues from New York City to Asheville and beyond. Simchock has received many prestigious awards, while his life story and career have been covered in several publications and TV features. Simchock is also an educator, speaker and writer (and aspiring rock star). He enjoys being a stranger in a strange land and taking on new artistic challenges, whether abroad or nearer his own back yard. He strives to bring a fresh approach to his craft, successfully capturing the mood of the moment, as well as, perhaps, an entire journey. He resides in Western North Carolina.

Sarah McFalls Artist’s Website

Bliss Home is pleased to be one of the hosts for the International Biscuit Festival’s Biscuit Art exhibition! Sarah McFalls will double as our Biscuit Art Exhibition artist and May First Friday artist! Bliss Home, located at 29 Market Square, will host an opening reception on Friday, May 1st, from 6pm to 9pm. Complimentary treats from Old City Java’s Bakery Wild Love will be provided and Sarah’s art will be featured for the month of May.

Sarah McFalls is a native Tennesseean, currently living and creating in Knoxville. She graduated from The University of the South with a BA in Art History and went on to pursue small, non-profit gallery work. She has worked for the past four years as collections manager at the Ewing Gallery of Art and Architecture, the University of Tennessee’s on-campus art gallery. When she is not painting at the 17th Street Studios, she enjoys seeing Knoxville’s live music, hanging out with friends, cooking delicious food, and talking to her cat Mamie.

Sarah’s May exhibit is inspired by cotton sacks, from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, that replaced barrels as containers for dry goods such as flour, sugar, rice, chicken feed, and seed. These bags were usually white with the company’s logo printed directly onto the cotton. Thrifty wives and mothers would repurpose these sacks into fabric for sewing  — making pillow cases, quilts, hand towels, and even clothing. Imagine the embarrassment of your dress or underwear having the Pillsbury or White Lily logo on it. A great effort was made to remove the printed logo – sometimes with lye soap, bleach, or even kerosene, but sometimes they remained. Companies producing these dry goods realized that their bags were going on to have a second life. In an effort to ease some of the hardships of the Great Depression and to entice more customers, they began printing sacks with colorful patterns and paper labels that could be easily removed. It was their hope that the home consumer would buy their brand of flour or feed not because they were faithful customers, but because the print on the bag was desirable for a new dress or quilt. This body of work is a celebration of some of the more interesting flour logos of the past and the wonderful tradition of printed, patterned flour sacks.

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.

The Pinklets

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.
