First Friday Exhibitions


Something Blue is a solo exhibition of new works by Knoxville artist Mike C. Berry. This exhibition includes new paintings and drawings that expressively highlight Knoxville and its surrounding landscape.

“Something Blue” is a line taken from an Old English Rhyme with the word blue representing love and purity. Mike’s chosen subject matter clearly demonstrates this sentiment about Knoxville and is an appropriate title for his commitment to creating his unique style of work. This exhibition also marks the 10th anniversary of his successful 2007 Limited Edition Dogwood Print, “Spring in the City.”


We’re celebrating fall and the arts by hosting a First Friday Pumpkin Painting Art Slam! Come paint a pumpkin with us from 5:30-8:30 on October 6th. Pumpkin artworks will be juried, and awards will be given to youth and adult artists.
