A conversation with photographer George Holz
Sunday the 14th of August 2022, 2-5 pm at the Emporium, 100 S. Gay Street, Knoxville, TN 37902

George Holz was born in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, in 1956 and graduated from the Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, California, in 1980. He apprenticed for Helmut Newton while still in college and credits him with mentorship and guidance that deeply influenced his career. As a young photographer, Holz lived in Milan and Paris where he shot beauty and fashion for major European magazines such as Lei, Linea Italiana, L’Officiel, Vogue Italia, and French Elle. He moved to New York City and set up his legendary studio on Lafayette Street, shooting fashion, beauty, advertising, and portraits for major publications and companies such as Mademoiselle, Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair, Elizabeth Arden, and Nike. He’s photographed some of the most recognizable and iconic movie posters and album covers including Face Off with John Travolta and Nicolas Cage, and Madonna’s Borderline. Holz’s fine-art nudes and portraits have been exhibited in prestigious galleries and museums around the world, and his photographs are a part of many private collections. His Grammy and Clio awards highlight a number of prestigious industry recognitions.

His 2016 monograph, Holz Hollywood: 30 Years of Portraits, is a virtual who’s-who in the world of film, music, television, sports, and politics, spanning three decades. Angelina Jolie, Jack Nicholson, Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt, Mariah Carey, Serena and Venus Williams, and Javier Bardem are just a few of the people featured in the book.

Holz lectures internationally at museums and universities, teaches workshops, and mentors young photographers. He travels extensively for his commercial and personal work, shooting advertising campaigns, iconic album covers, movie posters, and editorial features, as well as his fine art photographs.

Knoxville Museum of Art: Radcliffe Bailey: Passages

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

OPENING RECEPTION Fri Aug 12, 5:30-7:30pm

Working primarily between the mediums of sculpture and painting, noted contemporary artist Radcliffe Bailey (born 1968) incorporates found objects and photographs into richly layered and textured compositions that address history, ancestry, migration, and collective memory. The artist incorporates a multitude of mediums in a variety of works inspired by his interest in diasporic histories and notions of identity and displacement. Several works reference turbulent voyages at sea, recalling the lives lost in Middle Passage, while others celebrate the unifying power of music and the legendary jazz musicians who pushed the limitations of western tradition through their radical compositions.

The exhibition is organized by the Knoxville Museum of Art in conjunction with Jack Shainman Gallery, New York.

Knoxville Museum of Art, 1050 World's Fair Park, Knoxville, TN 37916. Hours: Tu-Sa 10-5, Su 1-5. Information: 865-525-6101, Admission and parking are free.

Category: History, heritage, Kids, family and Theatre

The play will be performed Thursdays and Fridays at 7 PM, Saturdays at 1 PM and 5 PM, and Sundays at 3 PM.

Knoxville Children’s Theatre, in partnership with the Clayton Foundation will present a live production of Joan The Girl of Arc by Darrah Cloud. This play is based on the life of Saint Joan of Arc.

When Joan, a peasant girl, hears a voice while tending sheep one day, she can’t believe what—and whom—she’s hearing. But the voice is joined by others who claim they are saints and ask her to go to war for France. Now she must convince her father, her friends and her priest that she is telling the truth. But no one believes her. Finally, she sets out on her own, determined to be believed, and proves her visions to the leader of the French army.

The play is performed by 12 talented young actors, from ages 9 to 18.

The show is directed by KCT’s Academy Director Emily Helton.

KCT is East Tennessee’s leading producer of plays for children and families. This show is eligible for Penny4Arts!
