The UT Downtown Gallery

The UT Downtown Gallery is located next to the Historic Emporium Building at 106 S. Gay Street in Downtown Knoxville. We are a part of the University of Tennessee’s School of Art and host monthly art exhibitions of professional Contemporary Artists from across the country. Many of our invited artists visit Knoxville and conduct lectures, talks and workshops that coincide with their downtown exhibit. The UT Downtown Gallery opens each new exhibition on the FIRST FRIDAY of every month from 5:00pm until 9:00pm. The exhibits are FREE and open to the public. The gallery serves to educate our students and community and stands as an attestation to the University of Tennessee’s commitment to the betterment of Knoxville’s cultural environment.

The gallery hours are Wednesday – Friday 11am – 6pm and Saturday 10am – 3pm. The gallery closes in observance of national holidays and between exhibitions.
