DOGWOOD GALLERY

The Dogwood Gallery features monthly-rotating exhibitions by local and regional artists. On the First Friday of each month, we host an opening reception for the new exhibition from 5-8PM as a part of the Downtown Knoxville Art Walk. Explore galleries, studios, and artist collectives; roam through shops hosting open houses and local artist exhibits; enjoy performance art and live music in the streets and at a variety of venues; drop in restaurants along the way and treat yourself to drinks and great food.

As you arrive downtown, look for ArtWalk flags to guide your way to events that are free and open to the public. Every month – year-round – brings fresh new exhibits, performances, dining opportunities, and special events. 

First Fridays at Dogwood Arts are sponsored by ORNL Federal Credit Union, the Tennessee Arts Commission, and Cherokee Distributing Company.

  • Gallery Hours: M-F 10AM-5PM
