New exhibit at Emporium

A new exhibition entitled “A Stitch in Time” by local artists Bobbie Crews and Judi Gaston, will be on display March 4-24, 2016 at the Emporium in downtown Knoxville.

“A Stitch in Time” combines fiber arts and mixed media to create a fascinating look into the resilient lives of women through the recycling of reality and relationships as well as materials. The works of Crews and Gaston overlap in their concern for women: the layers of who women are and how they exist and subsist in the larger political and material world.

A public reception will take place on Friday, March 4, from 5:00-9:00 PM to which the public is invited to meet the artists and view their works. The First Friday reception also features a Jazz Jam Session hosted by Vance Thompson and Friends from 7:00-9:00 PM in the Black Box Theatre. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres will be available.


“A Stitch in Time” is on display March 4-24, 2016 in the Atrium at the Emporium Center, 100 S. Gay Street, in downtown Knoxville. Exhibition hours are Monday-Friday9:00 AM – 5:00 PM and Sundays, March 6 & 203:30-6:30 PM.
