Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts: AIR Exhibition—Not a Metaphor

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

Reception: Friday, April 12, from 6-8 pm, free and open to the public

Featuring the works of 2018-2019 Artists-in-Residence Sasha Baskin, Alyssa Coffin, Everett Hoffman, Stephanie Wilhelm and Kari Woolsey

These 5 artists working in divergent materials and ideas find common connections pulling this work together for the exhibition. From the installations by Kari Woolsey referencing items found in the home on a daily basis, to Everett Hoffman’s queer forms of altered found objects alluding to domestic space. Pattern and repetition seen as a connecting line between Sasha Baskin and Stephanie Wilhelm through ideas of utilizing the rose from “The Bachelor” to an exploration of ornamentation and form based off the history of decorative ceramics. While Alyssa Coffin questions the realities of what it means to be human through responding to the story of the landscape. All artists connect through their shared experience at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts.

If you’ve ever written or wanted to write a mystery, a cozy, or a thriller then you’ve dealt, or will deal, with a dead body and a crime to be solved--in your book of course! Learn how solving crimes works (it’s not like TV.) Learn what forensic scientists can and can’t do. Best of all, learn how your characters can get away with murder! Bring your plot quandries and your best urban myths (like bury a dog on top of the body) and we’ll put them to the test. The author of 20+ books, AJ has won 15 Best Suspense/Best Fiction of the year awards. Her work is gritty and always walks the edge of reality. https://knoxvillewritersguild.org/events/mar2019workshop/
