Art Market Gallery’s April Featured Artist Exhibit

Recent works by ceramic artist Lisa Kurtz and photographer Dennis Sabo will be on display now through April 30 at the Art Market Gallery.

Lisa Kurtz has been a functional potter for more than 37 years. An award-winning ceramic artist, she is a clay professor at Cleveland State in Cleveland, TN, where she teaches hand building and wheel throwing. After getting her master’s degree in clay at the University of Louisville, Lisa set up her first studio in the eclectic Highlands neighborhood in Louisville, KY. She has been an exhibiting member of many professional guilds, boards, and galleries. Her work has been featured and shown in galleries and juried fine arts and craft shows across the U.S. and is in many private collections nationally and internationally. Lisa throws and hand builds her clay pieces and often integrates the two methods to create her functional pottery, sculpture, and clay wall art.

Dennis Sabo is an internationally honored photographer specializing in contemporary abstract, landscape, and seascape photography. His award-winning work has appeared in various publications and institutions, including National Geographic, NOVA, PBS, Canon, Hilton Hotels, and the Anthology of Appalachian Photographers. Autumn in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is a wonderful time to be in the park, and Dennis’s photography has transcended that seasonal experience into a magical fairytale of color, light, textures, and patterns. His choice of medium and processing is preserving images by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. These metal prints reveal vibrant colors with breathtaking luminescence while maintaining archival quality.
