Mayors’ Offices Exhibitions

Call for Artwork for the Mayors’ Offices (October 2017)

Our city and county mayors have once again asked the Arts & Culture Alliance to display the artwork of our INDIVIDUAL members on the sixth floor of the City County Building in downtown Knoxville. We would be honored to include your work if possible and hope you will be interested in participating! (Not a member? Join now!)

Artwork will be displayed in two places: 1) in the office and anteroom of City Mayor Madeline Rogero, and 2) in the hallway outside of County Mayor Tim Burchett’s offices. Artwork will remain on display for approximately SIX MONTHS from November 2017 – April 2018.

Please note: The works comprising these exhibitions are put together in order to build two cohesive shows. We do not impose a particular theme or color-scheme, but we do include works that look best together as a whole and that mutually flatter one another as well as their surroundings. That may mean that one, two, or no pieces of any particular artist ends up being included.

Please bring up to two original works to our office at the Emporium during one of these times:

Saturday, November 4, 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM (and view the Master Woodworkers Show while you’re here!)
Sunday, November 5, 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Monday, November 6, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM

2-D works must be wired to hang. Please limit works to 30 lbs or less in weight and 48″ on the longest side. There is no fee to participate for current individual members.

Save yourself a little time: download a copy of the release form (PDF), fill it out in advance, and bring it with you – or e-mail it to

Please prep work by including your name and artwork title on both the back of the piece as well as on a scrap piece of paper attached to the FRONT of your work. This will help with minimizing handling during installation.

New artwork will be installed and the current show will be de-installed on Thursday, November 9.

Artwork currently on exhibition (as well as artwork that is submitted but not included in the new exhibition) will be brought back to the Alliance offices at the Emporium and be may picked up from our office on Friday, November 10, or any day thereafter during our public hours of Monday-Friday, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM.
