A reception will take place on Friday, May 4, from 5:00-9:00 PM as part of First Friday activities downtown to which the public is invited to meet the artists and view the artwork.

His heads are from an imaginary community called Heresville, and his performance characters are from a series of acrobats called Mudman Circus. Currently, he is working on grotto scenes of dramatic poses imitating religious scenes.

On display at the Emporium Center, 100 S. Gay Street, in downtown Knoxville. Exhibition hours are Monday-Friday, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM. Information: (865) 523-7543 or www.knoxalliance.com.

Category: Exhibitions & visual art, Fine Crafts and Free event

Paintings by Inna Nasanova Knox (2 - D)
Inna's paintings reflect a lot of sunshine, with the use of bold color and clear hues. She prefers painting cityscapes, but also paints seascapes, and landscapes, where she accentuates the local culture of an area. “I truly believe that every city and place has its own character and individuality.”
Inna grew up in several Russian cities with over a million people, living in Kazan, St. Petersburg, Litvenia Kaunas, and Ukraine Krivoy Rog. She immigrated to the USA in 2000, and in 2005 became a US citizen. Currently, she is a dual citizen of Russia and the USA. “My life experience and art educational background has broadened my visual art approach. My work is included in different private collections in different countries around the world and has been displayed in different countries such as Russia, Ukraine, Litvenia, and Aruba, as well as the United States in Wisconsin, Florida, and Tennessee.”

Harriet Howell (3 - D)
Harriet Howell's scarfs capes are inspired by nature and expressed through color and texture. Some are funky fun and others elegant, but all reveal something about being feminine and feeling wonderful.
