Emporium presents four exhibits

The Arts & Culture Alliance is pleased to present four new exhibitions at the Emporium Center in downtown Knoxville from June 3-24, 2016. A public reception will take place on Friday, June 3, from 5:00-9:00 PM to which the public is invited to meet the artists and view the artwork.

Most of the works are for sale and may be purchased through the close of the exhibition. The First Friday reception also features music from 7:00-9:00 PM by Swing Serenade, a four-piece jazz band who plays fast swing, original grooves, and their own arrangements of beloved standards. Pasion Flamenca will perform flamenco dance and music in the Black Box from 6:00-6:30 PM. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres will be available, and chocolate fondue will be provided by the Melting Pot of Knoxville.

The exhibits include the Knoxville Photo 2016 in the downstairs galley and Tennessee Watercolor Society 35th Exhibition in the Balcony gallery; A Mosaic Journey by Judy Overholt Wheeler in the display case; and Kim Emert Gale and Janet Weaver: Through Our Eyes in the Atrium.

The Arts & Culture Alliance serves and supports a diverse community of artists, arts organizations, and cultural institutions. The Alliance receives financial support from the Tennessee Arts Commission, the City of Knoxville, and First Tennessee Foundation.
