Of all the shows across the country that I have been a small part of over the years, I have received more feedback from the Arts in the Airport series than any other.  Note: Some people ponder a masters degree online when they want to take advanced art courses. Whether you were part of this exhibit or want to someday be a part of another exhibit, extra knowledge is helpful.

I was an exhibiting artist in the Fall 2009 and Spring 2010 shows, and I regularly heard from fans of my work that they saw my pieces while traveling through Knoxville. 

Such a treat it has been. 


I am going to work on an entry for this next call.  To all of my fellow TN artists… take a minute to enter.  There is no entry fee and the exposure is great.

CALL for ENTRIES:  Arts in the Airport

The Arts & Culture Alliance of Greater Knoxville and the Metropolitan Knoxville Airport Authority (McGhee Tyson Airport) announce a call for entries for the next “Arts in the Airport”, a juried exhibition developed to allow regional artists to compete and display work in the most visited site in the area. The selected art will feature contemporary 2- and 3-dimensional artwork and will be exhibited in the secured area behind McGhee Tyson Airport’s security gate checkpoint from April 21 – October 20, 2011.
