Art Market Gallery's features works by two artists for April

Date(s):  April 04 - 30, 2017
Venue: Art Market Gallery

Knoxville, TN 37902

KNOXVILLE, TN Recent works by painter Harriet Howell and mixed-media artist Marilyn Avery Turner are on display April 4 through April 30 at the Art Market Gallery. An opening reception for the featured artists begins at 5:30 p.m., April 7, during downtown Knoxville's monthly First Friday Art Walk, with complimentary refreshments, and music performed by Matt Tilley.

Howell's work uses color and movement to express the emotional content of the landscape. She prefers plein air painting which, she feels, encourages an interactive relationship between the artist and the subject. She teaches classes in pastel landscape drawing and in experimental water-media painting. Her art training includes a BFA from the University of Tennessee and studying with master painters over many years. She has taught in pastel landscape drawing at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts for many years.

Turner draws from numerous sources, ancient and contemporary, to blend personal experiences with archetypal images. The use of drawings and statuary from early Mexican cultures reflects her abiding attraction to the country where she spent a formative part of her childhood. With a background in painting and collage, her use of monoprinting has become an ideal synthesis for these two mediums.

Owned and operated by more than 60 professional regional artists, the Art Market Gallery, at 422 South Gay St., is a few doors away from Mast General store and next to Downtown Grill & Brewery. Hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and Saturday; 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday; and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday. The gallery is wheelchair accessible, and parking in the abutting garage and on the street is free on weekends and after 6 p.m. weekdays. For more information, call 865-525-5265, or visit or
