Knoxville Museum of Art's Art House: Painting with a Purpose with Freddy Paske

Category: Exhibitions & visual art, Festivals & special events and Fundraisers

Painting with a Purpose, an Art House event, will feature London-based wildlife and animal painter Freddy Paske whose work has been recognized by the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation for bringing attention to the difficulties facing what remains of the world's wildlife population. Elephant population, for example, was 1.3 million in 1979 and now only 450,000 remain today. Paske creates large scale works using a combat boot as a brush to drive home a sobering point - the rangers who are tasked with protecting elephants and other animals facing extinction in Africa often do not have enough resources to have proper footwear to trek through the bush.

Prints of these works along with watercolor originals will be available for purchase.

Admission includes dinner catered by Cazzy's Corner Grill, drinks, and entertainment; must be 21 and up.

Admission - Art House Member $75
Admission - Non Art House Member - $125
Admission – Individual (1 guest) PLUS a year-long Membership to Art House - $200
Admission - Couple (2 guests) PLUS a year-long Membership to Art House -$300
