Knoxville Museum of Art

Contemporary Focus: Hunt Clark, Patricia Tinajero, and David Wolff
Closes Nov. 8


This exhibition is austere, but inviting. The major multimedia installation piece involved levels of wire attached with tubes of white mylar. The structure had three video monitors showing video on the wire and tubes. Like much contemporary art, the piece is less complicated and more interesting the longer time you spend looking at it. The video shows birds on telephone wires in a loop and seems to have a feeling of being in a city. The paintings of Hunt Clark and and David Wolff had the same effect. They seemed austere at the distance and more and more interesting the closer the viewer comes.

Very interesting work to see. Check it out!

I went to the Higher Ground exhibition for the fourth or fifth time. Each time, I have a different favorite. This time it was the Jolley glass, the Delaney portrait and paintings of the smokey Mountains.
I'm sure that my next visit will have new favorites. You can see the styles of art through the years done
by artists attempting to show East Tennessee to the world. This is a wonderful exhibition.
