FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Metropolitan Knoxville Airport Authority and Arts & Culture Alliance Present “Arts in the Airport”
(04/21/2011/Knoxville) – The Metropolitan Knoxville Airport Authority (McGhee Tyson Airport) and the Arts & Culture Alliance of Greater Knoxville are pleased to present “Arts in the Airport”, a new exhibition featuring selected artwork from over 40 artists in the East Tennessee region. “Arts in the Airport” was developed to allow regional artists to compete and display work in the most visited site in the area. The selected art features contemporary 2- and 3-dimensional artwork and will be exhibited in the secured area behind McGhee Tyson Airport’s security gate checkpoint from April 21 – October 20, 2011 with an opening reception on Thursday, May 5, at 5:00 PM. Please note: the exhibition is normally available for viewing only by visitors flying in or out of the airport. Otherwise, artists and their guests may view the exhibition during the opening reception and by appointment with Metropolitan Knoxville Airport Authority staff. Contact Becky Huckaby, Director of Public Relations, at (865) 342-3014.
“This current selection is striking in the abundance of narrative images that engage the viewer through specific points of entry, whether a face, an object, a figure, or a path,” says juror Stephen Wicks, Curator at the Knoxville Museum of Art. “Photography is especially well represented, as are entries that reflect artists’ interest in exploring the expressive possibilities of non-traditional art materials such as tape, plastic, vinyl, leather, cardboard, and water. The fact that this selection includes quite a few works by artists who have never before participated in this exhibition is a healthy sign that bodes well for the future of the Art in the Airport program.”
“The Arts in the Airport program has been a tremendous success and we are looking forward to the opening of our newest exhibit featuring the talented work of East Tennessee artists,” said Kirk Huddleston, Chairman of the Metropolitan Knoxville Airport Authority’s Board of Commissioners. “This new exhibit is filled with amazing works in all areas of artist media and we believe that our passengers will be pleased with its beauty and craftsmanship.”

Around 4 o’clock today, we are going on parade. The route will be Armstrong to Glenwood, Glenwood to Broadway, and Broadway to The Black Market in Knoxville Market Square. Honk if you see us. Throw candy.
We haven’t notified the city, but Ashley, as the member of the force (a crossing guard for Bel Morris Elementary) will be ensuring safety. I am parade commander.
We are marching with paintings, like leafcutter ants, to this month’s exhibit at The Black Market. I’ll be carrying this one:
It’s five feet tall and four feet wide. So is this one:
And Ashley will carry it.
Then we’ll come back for smaller works and a guitar. The parade commander will be providing live entertainment for tonight’s opening.
I know there are people who would love to lend us a van or a truck. However, we insist on an art parade, in the spirit of April, sunshine, and pomp.

Tyler James will be at the Mason Jar tomorrow, 8 pm. The show will be a must see. Tyler is a writer’s writer of a songsmith, a multi instrumentalist, and a road warrior. We’re excited he’s stopping by Knoxville to do a house show. His last time in Knoxville was at the Bijou so it will be great to have him play in our intimate setting.
Unfortunately Ashley and I are going to Virginia, we lost a family member this morning. The Mason Jar will shine.
