Location:  Knoxville, TN

KNOXVILLE, TN — Art by Randy Arnold and Herbert Rieth opens Oct. 19 at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church, Knoxville, Tennessee. The exhibit is free and open to the public and runs until Dec. 13.

Arnold’s work often derives from personal experiences and contemporary or historical contexts. He is interested in patterns constructed by belief systems and the evolution of their physical manifestations. He attempts to illuminate these various structures as they express themselves in nature and the human condition. There is a blurring of the line between these distinct paradigms, yet they are synchronistically connected through layers of ancient and present.

Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Arnold has made his way through life along the path of the Lewis and Clark trail, via Wisconsin, South Dakota, Oregon and finally Knoxville, Tennessee. He works at the Three Rivers Market cooperative and as a teacher at Pellissippi State Community College. His passion has always been art, from the age of 6, when he became interested in drawing people and maps of the world. He has a BFA from Columbia College Art School, Columbia, Missouri, and a MFA in printmaking from the University of South Dakota. He was an artist in residence at the Oregon College of Arts and Crafts.

Reith's paintings in this cycle are based his takes on mythological sources and have served as a way of processing life and world events. The artwork is largely mixed media acrylic painting, but the painting component has become a larger part of the image-making process. The works touch on loss, conflict, aging and ego.

Rieth is an artist and educator based in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. He works in a variety of media and modes, from mixed media fabric work to interactive installation and sculpture, and has shown work internationally and in 25 states. He received his BA from Indiana University and his MFA from the University of Cincinnati. He is an associate professor of visual arts at Pellissippi State Community College.
