The gallery’s Holiday Open House will continue on Saturday, December 7 from 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
The District Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of Joe Parrott’s work, featuring Knoxville cityscape and local landscape paintings in oil. Parrott paints en plein air and in his studio, and his textural paintings emphasize light and shadows.
“I want my work to express the elation I feel when I see bright sunlight reflecting off a brick building; when I see sparkling reflections in a body of water; when I see a bright blue sky illuminating objects in a deep shadow. These things inspire me to paint.”
Also opening is a jewelry show by New York designer Elizabeth Garvin, who graduated with honors from New York University in 1986, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree, with further studies at Parsons School of Design and Massachusetts College of Art. Jewelry by Elizabeth Garvin is exhibited internationally as an example of contemporary design in wearable art.
Each piece is hand fabricated from start to finish in her New York City studio from sterling silver and vermeil, while her fine line incorporates diamonds, 18k gold, 950 palladium and oxidized silver.
