January Meeting

The program will feature artist Cynthia Tipton, who maintains a studio and gallery in the Homberg area of Knoxville.  Tipton’s artwork is characterized by bold colors, expressive brush strokes and reflects the personality of the people and animals she paints.  She is inspired by the energy of her subjects and works in a variety of methods.  For the January meeting, Tipton will bring in various examples of her work which exhibit different approaches and styles. She will demonstrate a technique of creating a portrait using palette knives.

The Challenge Theme for this months meeting is: Feathered, Armored, or Furred

Challenge Art can be done in any media and can be brought to the meeting at any stage of completion, from rough sketch to ready to show or sell. Interpret the challenge however you want, to suit the medium of your choice. The intention of the Challenges is to provoke thought and creativity, push us as artists to new processes & themes, and to encourage us to create.

Visit our Artists Studio in downtown Knoxville

The Tennessee Artists Association leased space in the Emporium Center, 100 Gay St., Knoxville, TN., 37901, to house a working studio and gallery.  The lease was personally funded by 10 TAA Members.  
Located downstairs  to the left of the Main Gallery you will find Knoxville’s best kept secret, TAA’s Studio 106
The purpose of Studio 106 is to have a space where fine art classes and workshops can be held, a place to promote the Tennessee Artist Association and its shows and to invite local artists to join TAA.  It also provides a place where fine art can be created by  the studio artists, exhibited for public enjoyment and made available for the public to purchase. 
Studio 106 is open weekdays 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM, on First Friday’s from 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM, and for special occasions.
