NEW Artists Studio in downtown Knoxville

A group of TAA 10 members went together and rented a space at the Emporium of the Main Gallery for one year. Studio 106. The purpose is to have a place to paint and to display their artwork. It represents them but also TAA and will be mannedfrom 10 AM to 5 PM every weekday that to Emporium is open.

It would be a nice place to visit during the week and see their work and to talk with whoever is there!
