Marine art on display in Knoxville

Art Market Gallery featured artists for November include acrylic painter George Rothery and functional artist Kathy Lovelace, both of Knoxville.

An opening reception for these exhibitions will be held from 5:30 to 9 p.m., Nov. 7, 2014 during downtown Knoxville’s monthly First Friday Art Walk, with complimentary refreshments and jazz/blues music performed by Melanie and the Meltones.

George A. Rothery Jr. is known for his marine art. He especially enjoys researching sea lore so that he can combine his keen interest in history with his love of art. Rothery’s paintings are in public and private collections coast to coast.

Kathy Lovelace specializes in painting the brook, brown and rainbow trout found in streams of the Great Smoky Mountains. Lovelace describes her work as “functional art” since her paintings are depicted on small furniture and home accessories.
