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.
