About Art Market Gallery

The Art Market Gallery is the oldest gallery in Knoxville dedicated exclusively to local and regional art. The gallery currently exhibits the work of over 60 area painters, photographers, weavers, printmakers, woodworkers, potters, jewelers, fiber and glass artists.

It all began during the 1982 World’s Fair when “The Guild” members of the Dulin Gallery of Art agreed to use a $7,000 grant to organize an attraction for visitors to purchase quality art and fine crafts by area artists. Thus, the Art Market Gallery was begun in May 1982.

The first home of the Art Market was in a yellow Victorian house, known as Taylor House, next to the Dulin Art Gallery on Kingston Pike. The venture proved so successful that an advisory board was formed to continue the project as a “co-operative” after the Fair and members agreed to work in the gallery on a voluntary basis.

Every month the appearance of the art gallery is completely changed so that the gallery will look fresh to repeat visitors. The displays rotate and the walls are moveable. The process takes an entire day and is accomplished by the artists themselves who volunteer to be on the display committee.

What a great presentation on our Featured Artist Wall for June! Inna Nasonova Knox is the artist. Read on for more info about Inna: Inna’s paintings are energy and time captured on a canvas. Her vibrant colors and skillful use of a palette knife capture life and movement on the street. Her impressionistic oils sweep the viewer in, as if he or she were part of the scene. Inna Nasonova was well known in St. Petersburg for her elaborate watercolor of The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood. The magnificent painting was one of her top sellers with tourists. She grew up in Russia, attending the prestigious St. Petersburg Art University in interior design and selling paintings to pay her way through school. She later graduated from fashion design school and worked as a designer and seamstress for well-to-do women. But her path didn't end in Russia. When she immigrated to the U.S. in 2000, she experienced some things for the first time, including working with oils. Now Inna is happily ensconced in her studio in the Knoxville area where she also conducts painting classes. Her famous cathedral, in oil, hangs in the hallway, but she has fallen in love with Knoxville's people and street scenes. ... See MoreSee Less
