Works by several talented students from Eastern Tennessee have the honor of being displayed this tall at the Knoxville Museum of Art. Perhaps these are the artists of the future?
The Knoxville Museum of Art and the Tennessee Art Education Association present the “East Tennessee Regional Student Art Exhibition” Friday, November 24, 2017-Sunday, January 14, 2018. Now in its 12th year, the exhibition offers middle and high school students from around East Tennessee the opportunity to participate in a juried exhibition and to display their talents and be honored for their accomplishments in a professional art museum environment.
Students, family, friends, and the public are invited to a reception and awards ceremony Tuesday, December 5 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Knoxville Museum of Art. The event is free and open to the public.
The East Tennessee Regional Student Art Exhibition is open to students in grades 6-12, attending public, private, or home schools in 32 counties across East Tennessee. Fewer than a third (349) of the more than 1,073 entries in this highly competitive show made it through a rigorous jury process. The best-in-show winner will receive a purchase award of $500, and the artwork will become a permanent part of the collection of Mr. James Dodson, on loan to the Knoxville Museum of Art’s Education Collection.
Since 2005, the East Tennessee Regional Student Art Exhibition has presented the work of nearly 4,000 students who have competed for a total of $7 million in scholarships made available to eligible juniors and seniors by colleges and universities from around the nation.
