A1LabArts is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1995 by a group of local artists and remains one of the oldest artist-run organizations based in Knoxville. During their membership meeting at the beginning of the year, they selected the title for the exhibition a la Dada during which attendees wrote a word on a piece of paper. Three words – Goddess, Japan, and Peace – were chosen to help inspire works to appear in the exhibition.
A1LabArts is dedicated to multi-disciplinary and experimental exploration of contemporary art issues in all media. Through events, workshops, shows and performances, A1LabArts aims to make connections in the community among artists of different ages, interests and backgrounds. They see art as a bridge between ideas and people and use their space in Emory Place as a catalyst to spark innovation and make connections. Their current membership includes 60 artists and is open to the public. For more information or to learn about becoming a member of this art collective, please visit www.A1LabArts.org.
