Featured artists include:

Lil Clinard - Lil Clinard began painting in watercolor late in life, but considers it her favorite medium. As she says, “I like to paint in an impressionistic style leaving the details to the imagination of the viewer. Watercolor is perfect for this approach with flowing color and lost edges. I love it.” Lil has been a member of the Art Market Gallery since 2010 and is an active member of the Knoxville Watercolor Society, Tennessee Watercolor Society and the National Watercolor Society.

Genie Evan - I see beauty in my world. The beauty may be in the shape and lines of a tree, a flower, an animal, a human figure. The interaction of color, reflections, and textures, all play a part in what catches my eye and tempts me to try to make a few marks to record what I see. My art is a personal expression of the beauty I see. The softness, the brilliance, and the fluidity of watercolor help me put beauty on a piece of paper.

Harriet Howell - For me, painting is about the emotional and spiritual connection between the artist and the content of the painting. Most of my paintings involve nature and are often done on site. Even paintings done in the studio reference the natural world, especially as found in our Great Smoky Mountain Park. This has been a slow evolution that is becoming more abstract but is never non-objective.

Kate McCullough - “There is so much freedom in being able to create. The world of painting is a magical place where the looking glass is only limited by my imagination. The goal for my art is to not only reach that deeper place in myself but to offer something to the viewer that could reach a place in them that has meaning as well.”

Brenda Mills - "I've loved art for as long as I can remember and I paint because its exciting and liberating! I love the energy and intensity of bold color and frequently tell a story with my paintings. The viewer may not understand my intentions, but that's OK--the point is to enjoy the experience! I've been an active member for the Art Market Gallery for almost 30 years and I am a signature member of the TNWS."
