Art Market Gallery: Works by Ed Lewis & Pam Salyer
First Friday Reception: March 6, 5:30 – 9 p.m.
Pam Salyer, Mixed Media
The infinite variances in color, texture and pattern of the natural world fascinate me, and I attempt to interpret and convey the relationship between these elements through mixed media collage. My latest series of work focuses on what we see when we look into flowing rivers and rocky streams, probing beneath the surface, freezing a moment in time. I build each collage with acrylic paint, paper and acrylic gels, layer by layer, creating new ways to consider the textures and colors of the natural world around us. I enjoy experimenting with different techniques and materials, always striving to push the boundaries of my art practice. Pamela is a Knoxville-based mixed media artist (email@example.com).
Ed Lewis, Segmented Wood Turning
Ed Lewis mainly focuses on laminated and segmented wood turning. He states, “In combining different wood this way, the endless possibilities of design and color are achieved. I seldom use any dyes or stains, relying on the natural wood colors and grain to show through. I enjoy building of the complex blanks, as much as the turning of the final shape. Though my work is designed to be decorative, most of which can be used functionally.” Ed is a woodturner, located in Seymour, TN (firstname.lastname@example.org).

HoLa Hora Latina: Exhibition by Alexis Henríquez**
Opening Fri Mar 6, 5-9 PM
Alexis Henriquez was born on November 13th, 1965. He studied at the National School for the Fine Arts in Honduras and he is an architect. Henriquez started to paint in the nineties. He uses pastels, watercolor and acrylics to produce his art. “As an artist, I like to see and create works that inspire, that tell a story that is engrossed on its surroundings. During my childhood I had the pleasure to grow up in my hometown Tegucigalpa which lively streets sparked my imagination and desire for painting. My work is dedicated to the poor. It is with them that I was born as an artist and where I have found a place of truth and loyalty to my origins.”
Alexis Henríquez, nacido el 13 de noviembre de 1965, es egresado de la Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes de Honduras y es arquitecto de profesión. Henríquez empezó a pintar desde los noventas. Usa el pastel, la acuarela y los acrílicos para trabajar sus obras. Actualmente reside en Pigeon Forge, TN, desde donde crea su arte. Como artista me gusta ver y crear obras que motiven y expresen algo, que cuenten una historia que vaya dirigida hacia su entorno. Durante mi niñez tuve la dicha de crecer en las calles, vendiendo y caminando por las calles de Tegucigalpa, mi ciudad natal, mi imaginación volaba y creaba. Mis obras de arte están dedicadas a la gente pobre, es allí donde nace el artista sincero y leal a sus orígenes”.

River & Rail Theatre Company continues its inaugural season in the Old City Performing Arts Center with a funny, intelligent, and heart-breaking love story told through the lens of astrophysics. CONSTELLATIONS begins with a simple encounter between a man and a woman, but what happens next defies the boundaries of the world we think we know—delving into the infinite possibilities of their relationship and raising questions about the difference between choice and destiny. We're captivated by this mind-blowing, yet tender love story and are thrilled to share it with our Knoxville community.
