Knoxville Museum of Art: A Lasting Imprint: Rendering Rhythm and Motion in the Art of Black Mountain College

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

The Knoxville Museum of Art presents A Lasting Imprint: Rendering Rhythm and Motion in the Art of Black Mountain College now through May 2, 2021.

More than 50 prints, textiles, drawings, paintings and sculptures drawn from the extensive holdings of the Asheville Art Museum document a particularly rich and creative moment of radical experimentation with ways to integrate music, movement, and the visual arts. The exhibition includes work by the most adventurous and influential artists associated with Black Mountain College including Josef and Anni Albers, Ruth Asawa, Ilya Bolotowsky, John Cage, Buckminster Fuller, Lorna Blaine Halper, Kenneth Noland, Robert Rauschenberg, Marianne Preger-Simon, and Kenneth Snelson.

Black Mountain College, an experimental school in the North Carolina mountains near Asheville, was active from 1933 to 1957. The secluded environment fostered a strong sense of individuality, inter-disciplinary experimentation, and creative intensity, and served as a key setting in which artists revolutionized a broad range of modern art forms. Movement and music—both time-based activities—can be difficult to express in static media such as painting, drawing, and photography, yet many artists feel called to explore them. Movement serves as inspiration—either to capture it or to create it in entirely different media. Similarly, music is driven by rhythm, patterns, and variations that are enticing departures for visual artists. In few places did movement, music, visual arts, and myriad other disciplines intermingle with such impact as they did at Black Mountain College, which profoundly influenced the course of American modernism.

A Lasting Imprint is organized by the Asheville Art Museum (AAM), Asheville, North Carolina and features key works from the museum’s Black Mountain College Collection.

Open to the public Wednesday through Sunday 1-5pm. Admission and parking are free.

Knoxville Museum of Art, 1050 World's Fair Park Dr, Knoxville, TN 37916. Information: 865-525-6101,

Gallery 1010: The Scale Figure's Home

  • January 29, 2021 — January 31, 2021

Category: Exhibitions & visual art and Free event

Architecture and Interior Architecture students will open The Scale Figure’s Home Friday, January 29, at Gallery 1010.

The show can be viewed through a virtual opening reception from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday or by appointment Saturday and Sunday, January 30 and 31.

Gallery 1010 is located at 1150 McCalla Avenue. Visit for the opening reception link and more information.

The Scale Figure’s Home will be a show that explores the narrative of the scale figure. The scale figure is a character that has always been overlooked and not commonly occupying the mind of the creator, the architect. It is always the narrative of the space, the character of the building that is filled with great detail, yet has there been a moment of pause to ponder about the story of the scale figure?

Like a pochade silhouette looming throughout the space of the creator, there are many questions that are answered such as the scale of the drawing, the representation of the space, who occupies the area, and the spacial experience, but never questions such as, who is that person, where have they journeyed, and why they are here? The Scale Figure’s Home is here to answer the depths and the detail of the scale figures narrative and highlight that even the most “overlooked” character is the most important.
