The Arts & Culture Alliance is pleased to present an inaugural exhibition by The Knoxville Photography Collective, a passionate group of nine photographers who share a love of all things photographic. Together, the members of the Collective have almost 200 years of photography experience that encompasses a wide range of styles and techniques. The photographs in this exhibition cover the gamut from film to digital and B&W to color. Genres represented in the exhibit include travel, street, wedding, portrait, close-up, abstract, and landscape photography. There is only one common theme in this mosaic of work: the love of photography.
The Knoxville Photography Collective held their first gathering at Barley’s in April 2001, and the initial group welcomed photographers working in a dark room and with B&W film. Since then, the Collective has met on a monthly basis to share their work, ideas, and processes.
Brian McDaniel leads the Collective. Other members include: David Case, Tony Hazen, Tony Kyle, Robert Minick, Dick Penner, Caitlin Taylor, Owen Weston, and Steve Zigler.
The exhibition will be displayed February 5-26, 2016 at the Emporium Center, 100 S. Gay Street, in downtown Knoxville. Most of the photographs 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. 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.
