Work Friends II

I’m curating a show at Fluorescent Gallery in Knoxville, opening Friday March 31 at 6:00 p.m.

Poster - Work Friends 2

Work Friends II is the second iteration of a show put together in an empty storefront on Broadway in 2013 called “Work Friends“. The original show featured the paintings, sculptures, and photos of ten Knoxville artists along with an item chosen as a partner to their work; a “work friend”.

Each artist was asked to display something that has a relationship to their process or aesthetic. The resulting talismans, detritus, and practical tools expanded the work, and served as a link to the creative incubator that is the studio. For this show, six Knoxville artists (or those recently of Knoxville) have been asked to do the same.
