Eun-Sook Kim of Oak Ridge and Harriet Smith Howell of Rutledge will be featured artists for January 2015 in the Art Market Gallery in downtown Knoxville.
The opening reception during downtown Knoxville’s traditional date for the First Friday Art Walk will begin at 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 2, 2015, with light refreshments and Bluegrass music performed live by Caring Committee.
Kim and Howell share certain attributes. While their styles and interpretations may differ, both are award winning versatile artists who look to nature for inspiration. They teach and conduct art workshops, have exhibited widely, and were juried into this cooperative in both two-dimensional and three-dimensional mediums, a feat accomplished by just a handful of current active members.
For this exhibit, Eun-Sook Kim, who also works in clay, will be showing her paintings (photo above), and Harriet Howell, who also creates paintings, will show one-of-a-kind silk scarves as wearable art. Photographs courtesy of the artists.
