KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – The Art Market Gallery kicks off a month-long celebration of its 35th year as an establishment that sells original art and fine crafts by regional artists 2-6 p.m. May 6.
Three charter members at the gallery will share stories and memories of Art Market Gallery with friends, patrons, other artists, and art or history lovers.
Visitors can get a coupon for 10% off one item over $25 good on First Friday evening, May 5 which can be used for Saturday, May 6 or Saturday, May 27 only.
The history of the Art Market Gallery is interestingly entwined with the history of visual arts in the area, but the birth of the gallery as an artists’ co-operative came about during the 1982 World’s Fair.
The Art Market Gallery moved to Gay Street from the old Candy Factory location in 2006 and is proud of being a part of the redevelopment of Downtown and a growing appreciation of art in the area. The organization is one of the oldest co-operative art groups in the Southeast with more than 60 artist-members in a wide variety of art mediums.
