KNOXVILLE'S ART & ANTIQUES GALLERY'S LAST HURRAH!
Apr 7 2006 KNOXVILLE
The Art & Antiques Gallery was located at the World's Fair Park until its recent closing due to new ownership. The gallery first opened in 1992, embodying the foresight and ambitions of eight local artists who wished to provide a pleasant place for aspiring artists to begin their gallery careers. Original founders of the cooperative gallery included Julia Schriver (president of Art & Antiques Gallery throughout its existence), Fran Thie, Stephanie Brichetto, Barbara Ogle, Elaine Hasson, Helen Hightower, Betty Crenshaw, and Betsy Worden. Current board members also include B.J. Clark and Ruth Prince.
The Art & Antiques Gallery was unique because of the combination of original visual art, fine crafts, reproductions of art, and quality antiques. Recent members included Pat Fain, stained glass artist; Gordon Fowler, woodworker; Stacy Kite, oil and acrylic artist; Josephine Mayo, noted local watercolorist; Helen Hightower, oil and watercolor artist; Sandra Curtis, photographer; and many others. For information on specific artists, please contact the Arts & Culture Alliance.
The opening reception from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on April 7 is free and open to the public. Complimentary wine and hors d'oeuvres will be served. Knoxville's Art & Antiques Gallery: A Last Hurrah!, is on exhibit at the Emporium Center for Arts & Culture, 100 S. Gay Street, downtown Knoxville. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, contact the Arts & Culture Alliance, (865) 523-7543, or visit our website at www.knoxalliance.com.
