“BeDazzled” Jewelry Show

Made with Repix (http://repix.it)

The Art Market Gallery, a 60+ member juried artist co-operative in downtown Knoxville, celebrates Tennessee Craft Week October 5-14 by showcasing the work of five jewelry artisans. This special show, called “BeDazzled,” will run at the gallery throughout the month of October. Tennessee Craft Week is a collection of craft events and happenings taking place across the state every October. Its purpose is to connect and celebrate the work of craft artists and the businesses that support them.

The Art Market Gallery is lucky to have five talented jewelry artists as members: Roger Kroll, Jennifer Lindsay, Nancy Rowland-Engle, Lynn Straka, and Kristine Taylor. Each will have their work on display during “BeDazzled,” bringing their own perspectives, inspirations, and skills to the craft of jewelry making: Roger Kroll’s aim is to create a functional art form with his jewelry and metal art by exploring form, shape, color, and texture; Jennifer Lindsay fashions one-of-a-kind, intricately beaded pieces inspired by architecture, gardens, and historical customs; Nancy Rowland-Engle creates contemporary metallic jewelry with an edgy, sculptural form; Lynn Straka is influenced by nature in making her mixed-media jewelry, incorporating sterling silver, copper, and bronze with semi-precious stones; and Kristine Taylor is inspired by good design and beautiful color in crafting her unique polymer clay designs, blending contemporary and ancient forms with abstract images.

Please join us in celebrating these talented artists and some of the finest jewelry craft that Tennessee has to offer. In addition, you will also enjoy the wide variety of fine craft and fine art on display every day at the Art Market Gallery – voted Knoxville’s best place to buy art in 2016 and 2017 in the Knoxville News Sentinel poll.
