The Arts & Culture Alliance will present an inaugural exhibition by The Knoxville Photography Collective, February 5-26, 2016. The Collective is a passionate group of nine photographers who share a love of all things photographic. Together, the members of the Collective have almost 200 years of photography experience that encompasses a wide range of styles and techniques. The photographs in this exhibition cover the gamut from film to digital and B&W to color. Genres represented in the exhibit include travel, street, wedding, portrait, close-up, abstract, and landscape photography. There is only one common theme in this mosaic of work: the love of photography.

The Knoxville Photography Collective held their first gathering at Barley’s in April 2001, and the initial group welcomed photographers working in a dark room and with B&W film. Since then, the Collective has met on a monthly basis to share their work, ideas, and processes.

Brian McDaniel leads the Collective. Other members include: David Case, Tony Hazen, Tony Kyle, Robert Minnick, Dick Penner, Caitlin Taylor, Owen Weston, and Steve Zigler.

The exhibition will be displayed at the Emporium Center, 100 S. Gay Street, in downtown Knoxville. Most of the photographs are for sale and may be purchased through the close of the exhibition. A public reception will take place on Friday, February 5, from 5:00-9:00 PM. The First Friday reception also features a flamenco dance performance by Pasión Flamenco from 6:00-6:30 PM in the Black Box Theatre and a Jazz Jam Session hosted by Vance Thompson and Friends from 7:00-9:00 PM in the Black Box Theatre. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres will be available and chocolate fondue will be provided by the Melting Pot of Knoxville.

Exhibition hours are Monday-Friday, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM and Sundays, February 7 & 21, 3:30-6:30 PM. For more information, please contact the Arts & Culture Alliance at (865) 523-7543, or visit
