An Evening Under the Stars

Under the Stars was a memorable evening at the KMA for ArtHouse members. Attendees gathered for after dinner drinks and small bites to hear from Local Artist Richard Jolley. Jolley, who is arguably one of the most accomplished glass blowers of our time, has called Knoxville his home since establishing his studio here in 1975. His work is on exhibition in over 64 galleries and museums across the nation as well as internationally. 

Members of ArtHouse were able to met both Richard and his wife Tommie, and hear about the inspiration, production and installation of the Cycle of Life. Cycle of life is the largest glass installation of the world and is a permanent feature in the Bailey Hall at the KMA. The 7 stage exhibit took 6 years to create and over 3 months to install. 

Members were also able to hear form a Knoxville Symphony Orchestra (KSO) representative. The KSO has created a symphony inspired by this piece that will be performed this April. ArtHouse members are welcome to a 20% off ticket price and invited to a champagne toast opening night. Be sure to mark your calendars for this event!
