Coming to Knoxville...

My watercolor painting "Elles Tobacco Planter" will be on exhibit in Knoxville during the month of October. The Tennessee Watercolor Society's 2014 Traveling Exhibit, with 30 paintings selected by the show juror, will hang at the Emporium, 100 S Gay Street, Knoxville, TN.

This show opens on Friday, October 3rd, as part of the city-wide First Friday monthly art celebration, and continues through October 31st. Galleries, restaurants, and other downtown shops - many within walking distance of the Emporium - will be open and featuring artwork and photography. The Emporium will be open until 9pm on the opening evening, and their hours vary other days so check their website.

The traveling show will then go to Sycamore Shoals State Historic Area in Elizabethton, TN, during November, and its final stop will be Dec. 2, 2014 - Jan. 6, 2015 in Chattanooga at the InCubator in the Hamilton County Business Center.

The show juror, nationally renowned watercolor artist Pat Dews, made this statement about her selections: "I look for strong design, color, and content. I look for technical skill. I look to see if a painting captures the essence of the subject. I look for work I would like to have painted."

Put this show in your plans!
