An Intimate Look at The Creative Process

Dogwood Art DeTour is an event where local artists welcome the public into their actual studio space to experience the working creative process as the artist demonstrates the making of a work of art. When it comes to art, the creative process can be just as interesting as the finished product. Dogwood Art DeTour provides an intimate look into local artists’ working studios. Visitors are invited to watch as the artists produce some of East Tennessee’s spectacular works of art.

Take some time to enjoy a spring day with the arts. A variety of artistic media will be on display showcasing the diverse talents that are present in this area. All studios will have completed works of art for sale!

2018 Studio

Melanie Woods
Impressionist Painter
100 Craigland Ct SW

Dogwood Arts presents a spring open studio tour with Melanie Wood. Local artist Melanie Wood will open her studio at 100 Craigland Court in Knoxville, Tennessee on May 5th and 6th from 10am -5pm and 12pm-5pm.  Melanie will showcase over 60 oil paintings that she has created throughout the year. Her work ranges from floral abstractions to foreign cityscapes; each painting as a unique perspective and a strong sense of color design.

“As an eternal optimist, my joy for living infuses every painting with a vibrant, impressionistic style. Painting is the result of my lifelong journey into self-discovery and translating the delights I encounter, both commonplace and extraordinary, into a personal vision for others to enjoy.”

“Working exclusively in oils, I strive to capture on canvas the energy and spontaneity that drive my love for each new day and fuel my imagination, whether it be violet haze over the Tennessee Smoky Mountains, the fields of Provence or courtyards of Sienna, poppies along a garden walk, or a red vase overflowing with sunflowers. I often incorporate abstract qualities throughout the paintings, invoking a dreamlike quality.”
