Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church Gallery Exhibition

  • October 16, 2016 — December 8, 2016

Category: Exhibitions & visual art and Free event

Art exhibit by Thomas Riesing and Koichi Yamamoto

Opening reception November 18 from 5 to 8:00 p.m.; artists’ talks at 6:30 p.m.

Thomas Riesing: These artworks, produced from 2007 to the present, utilize drawing not only to develop ideas before and during the painting process, but also as independent works of art. The drawing materials include graphite, silver point, and ballpoint pen. Riesing prefers sketching with ballpoint because of its fluidity and its unique ways of developing relative densities and layers of information. The graphite drawings allow for erasing and reduction, while the silver point drawings require a more deliberate, subtle approach to image and surface development. The places represented include East Tennessee and the Smoky Mountains, the Pocono Mountains and Delaware River Gap, and the forests along the coast of Oregon. Riesing responds to the light and space between and beyond the persistent verticality of the trees.

Koichi Yamamoto: Layers of line and folds within the sediment provide a sense of connection in Yamamoto’s crafted illusion of landscape. The significance of each moment, a fraction of time, is not lost in the grand scale of the completed work. Removing copper from the plate surface, he begins to cultivate a specific landscape. Multiple prints from multiple plates provide maps of the excavation, each image a record of past events. Using these samples, he discovers a significant composition. In contrast, the monotype is transparent; there are no interruptions in form as it appears. It is a seemingly tangible moment and like tectonic plates, it is dynamic and in constant motion.

Free and open to the public. Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church, 2931 Kingston Pike, Knoxville, TN 37919. Gallery hours: M-Th 10-5, Su 10-1. Information: 865-523-4176, www.tvuuc.org

The District Gallery & Framery: "Mask" by Nan Jacobsohn

  • October 7, 2016 — October 29, 2016

Category: Exhibitions & visual art, Fine Crafts and Free event

The District Gallery is pleased to present Mask by sculptor Nan Jacobsohn. In her second showing at the gallery, Jacobsohn evokes the primal in her latest collection of striking animal masks. Exploring sculpture in its most original form, Jacobsohn’s work gives way to endless possibilities, both tactile and sacred, ancient yet contemporary. The use of masks for ritual and ceremonial purposes has been a human practice since antiquity, intimately linked with animal iconography. From the ancient cave paintings in France to the monumental totem images of the Northwest, artists have attributed to their fellow creatures powers and qualities both natural and magical. “I consider them, perhaps, guardian spirits,” Jacobsohn says. Working in ceramic and mixed media, Jacobsohn expresses the distinctive features of each creature with textural and stylistic elements, and captures the essence of their spirit. “I love the fact that you connect directly with the clay with your hands, and it responds almost like a living thing,” says Jacobsohn. With their primal power incarnated in clay, her masks are brought alive.

Please join us Friday, October 7 from 5-8 p.m. for an artist’s reception.

The District Gallery, 5113 Kingston Pike, Knoxville, TN 37919. Hours: M-F 10-5:30, Sa 10-4. Information: 865-200-4452, www.TheDistrictGallery.com
