The Guild of the Knoxville Museum of Art presents Artists On Location exhibition and art sale in the museum’s Bailey Hall on Saturday, April 28 from 6 to 9 p.m. This event will provide both new and seasoned collectors the chance to acquire original paintings of some of Knoxville’s best-known sites.

Throughout the week of April 23 – 27, local and regional artists will capture on canvas the many varied scenes in and around Knoxville. From urban street to pastoral garden settings, the public is invited to watch artists in action as they paint “en plein air” at locations selected in advance of the competition.

Artists will exhibit and sell their works at the exhibition and art sale on Saturday, April 28. The annual event is free and open to the public, and includes light refreshments and a cash bar. Proceeds of the sale will benefit both participating artists and programs of the Knoxville Museum of Art.
