KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Recent works by painter Harriet Howell and mixed-media artist Marilyn Avery Turner will be on display April 4-30 at the Art Market Gallery.
An opening reception for the featured artists will begin 5:30 p.m. April 7 during Downtown Knoxville’s monthly First Friday Art Walk, with complimentary refreshments, and music performed by Matt Tilley.
Harriet Howell’s work uses color and movement to express the emotional content of the landscape. She prefers plein air painting which, she feels, encourages an interactive relationship between the artist and the subject. Howell teaches classes in pastel landscape drawing and in experimental water-media painting. Her art training includes a BFA from the University of Tennessee and studying with master painters over many years. She has taught in pastel landscape drawing at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts for many years.
Owned and operated by more than 60 professional regional artists, the Art Market Gallery, at 422 South Gay St., is a few doors away from Mast General store and next to Downtown Grill & Brewery. Hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday and Saturday; 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday; and 1-5 p.m. Sunday. The gallery is wheelchair accessible, and parking in the abutting garage and on the street is free on weekends and after 6 p.m. weekdays.
