Arts & Culture Alliance Presents Art Group 21 – A Visual Experience

The Arts & Culture Alliance is pleased to present a new exhibition entitled “A Visual Experience” by Art Group 21, featuring original watercolor, oil, acrylic, pencil, pastel, mixed media, collage, and more by 21 local artists. The exhibition will be displayed in the main gallery of the Emporium Center in downtown Knoxville from August 1-30, 2014.

A public reception will take place as part of First Friday activities on Friday, August 1, from 5:00-9:00 PM with complimentary hors d’oeuvres provided by Qdoba Mexican Grill and Jason’s Deli. The First Friday reception also features a flamenco dance performance by Pasión Flamenco from 6:00-6:45 PM and a Jazz Jam Session hosted by Vance Thompson and Friends from 7:00-9:00 PM, both in the Black Box Theatre.

Art Group 21 was established in the early 1980's by a small group of University of Tennessee-Knoxville art graduates needing the fellowship and support of like-minded, working artists. Established as a work/study group, monthly meetings are planned and run by members and include workshops, lectures, critiques, field trips, and group exhibitions. To encourage an atmosphere of individual growth and fellowship, membership is limited to 21 artists at any given time, hence the name Art Group 21. Members have come from local, national and world experiences. The group maintains that the various art forms are a part of the aesthetic total and are mutually reinforcing, thus encouraging the uniqueness of each artist's vision.
