Our Art Programs are designed to promote professional artists, emerging artists, and young aspiring artists. Professional artists embrace opportunities such as our long-standing Dogwood Arts Festival and our Art In Public Places Sculpture program. Emerging artists often engage in our mural program, Chalk Walk event, and sell their artwork at our markets. Youth artists participate in the popular Chalk Walk, our Epiphone Guitar Design contest, A Very Special Arts Festival, and Synergy Exhibition.
Our newest initiative, Art Kits for Kids, has provided free art and educational supplies to over 3,000 children in East Tennessee.
Megan Lingerfelt uses oil and water based mediums to draft the intricate elements of man made forms. Her work focuses on structures with repetition, deep shadows, and luminous reflections as a means to explore the relationships between object and user. Discovering new paths for efficiency in order to streamline our lives, bit by bit we push and follow the industrial evolution.
