The Arts & Culture Alliance is pleased to present its tenth annual National Juried Exhibition of 2016, a new exhibition featuring selected works from 48 artists in the Southeast region. The National Juried Exhibition was developed in 2006 to provide a forum for local artists to compete on a national scale and display their highest quality work. The exhibition encompasses all styles and genres from both emerging and established artists working in a variety of media such as photography, acrylic, pencil, copper, fibers, oil, paper, stoneware, and more and will be displayed in the Balcony gallery of the Emporium Center from February 5-26, 2016. Most of the works are for sale and may be purchased through the close of the exhibition. A public reception will take place on Friday, February 5, from 5:00-9:00 PM with a brief awards ceremony at 6:00 PM in which over $1,000 in cash awards will be announced. The First Friday reception also features a flamenco dance performance by Pasión Flamenco from 6:00-6:30 PM in the Black Box Theatre and a Jazz Jam Session hosted by Vance Thompson and Friends from 7:00-9:00 PM in the Black Box Theatre. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres will be available and chocolate fondue will be provided by the Melting Pot of Knoxville.
