Live! First Friday art competition!
September 7, 5:30pm - 8:30pm

Some of Knoxville's most talented artists will be creating one-of-a-kind paintings on large-scale canvases during a 3-hour period for September's First Friday ArtWalk. Watch this art-in-action under the lights in Strong Alley and bid on your favorites.

Auction proceeds benefit the ongoing Strong Alley Mural Program.

Artists participating include Beth Meadows, Carl Gombert, Cody Swaggerty, Curtis Glover, Denise Cumming, Jennifer Brickey, Kimberly Bylo, Lauren Lazarus, Mary Bogert, Ryan Blair, Shane Sandberg, and more!

Where? Strong Alley is between Gay Street and Market Square (the highest-traffic and most photographed alley in town with incredible murals and bistro lights). You can enter from either Wall Ave or Union Ave.

Rain or shine!

Art Slam is hosted by Dogwood Arts, The Muse Knoxville, and the Downtown Knoxville Central Business Improvement District.

Inclement weather will move the artists to Dogwood Arts at 123 W Jackson Ave.
