Appalachian Reckoning at the Knoxville Museum of Art

  • March 12, 2019

Category: Free event, History & heritage and Literature & readings

Tuesday, March 12, 2019 at 7 PM – 9 PM
Knoxville Museum of Art, 1050 World's Fair Park Dr SW, Knoxville, Tennessee 37916

This event is free and open to the public. Appalachian Reckoning is a retort, at turns rigorous, critical, angry, and hopeful, to the long shadow Hillbilly Elegy has cast over the region and its imagining. But it also moves beyond Hillbilly Elegy to allow Appalachians from varied backgrounds to tell their own diverse and complex stories through an imaginative blend of scholarship, prose, poetry, and photography.

This event is hosted by Union Ave Books and will feature a panelists of contributors from the collection including: Meredith McCarroll, Robert Gipe, Lou Murrey, Bob Hutton, Linda Parsons, and Jeremy Jones.

A cash bar and refreshments will be available. A specific selection of authors' previous works will be available for purchase in addition to the main title. https://www.facebook.com/events/2083788268379638/

Reverse Engineering Redo: Casting New Light on Ralph Albert Blakelock’s Dark Paintings

  • March 12, 2019

Category: Exhibitions & visual art, Free event and Lectures

2:15-3:15 PM

Featuring Yale University’s Dr. Aniko Bezur, the Wallance S. Wilson Director of the Technical Studies Lab—Institute for Preservation of Cultural Heritage. Ralph Albert Blakelock was an American landscape artist (1847–1919) famous for his paintings of moonlit Western landscapes painted in the late 1880s and early 1890s. Prices for his paintings soared and forgeries quickly multiplied after he was institutionalized with mental illness in 1899. This talk considers the utility of a suite of imaging and instrumental analysis techniques for understanding Blakelock’s selection of paint materials, his painting technique, and the consequences of these choices for changes in the optical and mechanical properties of his works. Free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served at 2:10 p.m. preceding the talk in the Science and Engineering Research Facility on the UT campus.

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.

River & Rail Theatre Company: Every Brilliant Thing

Category: Theatre

RIVER & RAIL THEATRE CO. is proud to announce the return of Every Brilliant Thing
in The Green Room at Jackson Avenue Terminal
Group ticket rates available for groups of ONLY 5 OR MORE.

A THREE-PERSON-ONE-PERSON-SHOW?
In May, 2017, Joshua Peterson starred in our two-week run of this moving, hilarious, spontaneous roller coaster one-man show about everything from family, to depression & suicide, to falling in love; and about what it's like to be determined to find “everything brilliant about the world, everything worth living for.” Since we did this show two years ago, people have begged us to bring it back. So, we're bringing it back! This time, though, we have three actors to play a one-person show...

WAIT. HOW? AND WHY?
Each show will rotate actors, so that one of our three diverse voices will play the role each evening. Why? Because depression doesn’t discriminate. Come feel the beauty and brilliance of this story with us. #BrilliantThings
Get your tickets now!

Critics from NYC to London have fallen in love with Every Brilliant Thing. We are spellbound by this intimate, poignant story and are thrilled to share it with our Knoxville community.

“A life-affirming gem… as profound a work as you are ever likely to experience on a New York stage.” - NY1
"Heart-wrenching, hilarious...possibly one of the funniest plays you'll ever see, full stop." - The Guardian, UK
