Back in the day, we frequented downtown Knoxville for shopping, worship, dining, movie theatre, dry goods, supermarket, and coffee shop. Today, the Art Market Gallery will have a special showing of works by gallery members entitled “Knoxville, Then and Now” from August 3-31 at 422 South Gay Street in downtown Knoxville.

Some of the “Then” works to be exhibited include an oil painting by Marie Merritt depicting the Civil War, First Baptist Church on Main Street and the historic Tennessee Theatre (both by Inna Knox), and Immaculate Conception Church by Gay Bryant. A “Now” work includes an acrylic painting of a flash mob by Brenda Mills.

The exhibit will also feature a memorial showing of glass works by artist, Vivian Shoemaker. Her stained glass works reflect the landscape of the east Tennessee area.

This show will be in conjunction with the East Tennessee History Center's History Fair which takes place on August 15th in downtown Knoxville.

The Art Market Gallery is owned and operated by 62 professional regional artists. It is located a few doors from Mast General Store and next to Downtown Grill & Brewery. Hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Thursday and Saturday; 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday; 1 to 5 p.m., Sunday. The gallery is wheelchair accessible, and parking in the abutting garage and on the street is free on weekends and after 6 p.m. weekdays. For more information, call 865-525-5265, or visit artmarketgallery.net, or facebook.com/Art.Market.Gallery.
