November

Nectar Art Exhibition - Free and Open to the Public
Join us for an opening reception for UTC Painting and Drawing Alumnus Kirby Miles! Miles is currently earning her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan and we are excited to exhibit some of her new work from her intensive studies.

Miles' work centers around a balanced trauma that is texturally rich and vibrant, a space that is precariously close to being “too much”: Though inviting and almost deliciously edible, it is actually poison. This space contains her memories and mechanisms both real and fabricated that envelope those traumas. It is something that seems strangely familiar down to the last sticky drop.

The exhibition will run from Saturday, November 11th, and will be up through November 26th.

Gunk Heads Art Exhibition - Free and Open to the Public

errSpace is excited and proud to present its first solo exhibition at the The Palace Picture House! Join us and local artist Alecia Vera Buckles for an Opening Reception on First Friday June 2nd, starting at 6pm, to view her new Gunk Heads mixed media illustrations! 

Alecia's illustrations of unabashed ladies are fun, whimsical, and outright honest to themselves; much like the artist. Adorned with fierce fashion stylings, topped with peeled acrylic paint for that 'gunk' effect, reminding us all to live life and not to sweat the little things.

This August! We are very excited and most proud to be exhibiting work from the artists that brought you Wayne-O-Rama! 

Lead and envisioned by Wayne White, Wayne-O-Rama couldn't have happened without the support and creativity of Chattanooga's art community. For several weeks, local artists donated time, materials, skills, and sanity to make the funhouse of history a reality. 

Join us as we celebrate 13 artists' work, sharing insight into their creative process, inspiration, and the impact of working with Wayne White. This exhibition coincides with Wayne-O-Rama and Thrill After Thrill to create a trifecta of Wayne White in Chattanooga! 

We will have an opening reception on First Friday, August 4th, from 6-9pm.
On Friday August 25th from 6-7:30pm we will have an artist talk in which some of the participating artists will speak about their experiences working with Wayne and his influence on their work.

Laughing and Screaming Art Exhibition - Free and Open to the Public
Please join us on Thursday, October 5th, from 6-8pm for an opening reception of new work from our curator Aaron Cowan. This event is free and open to the public.

Aaron's current body of work is a reflection on growing up and living in the South, criss-crossing borders of reality and fantasy, danger and safety, destruction and beauty. Without becoming overtly political, the work wrestles with social expectations of masculinity, machismo & male behavior while staying true to one's self; at the same time there is a wreckless disregard of common sense in the pursuit of fun and pleasure with a flavor that is unmistakably 'Southern.' You can view more of his work at his website.
