Knoxville Museum of Art / 1050 World's Fair Park Dr. November 25, 2022 - December 8, 2022

The Knoxville Museum of Art proudly presents the 17th Annual East Tennessee Regional Student Art Exhibition Friday, November 25, 2022-Sunday, January 8, 2023. Now a long-standing tradition, the exhibition showcases the strength and diversity of art education programs in East Tennessee. Categories for the competition include ceramic, drawing, digital imagery/video production, mixed media, painting, computer graphics, sculpture, photography, and printmaking.

Approximately 350 works of the more than 700 entries in this highly competitive show made it through a rigorous jury process. Since 2005, the East Tennessee Regional Student Art Exhibition has presented the work of well over 4,000 students who have competed for a total of $7 million in scholarships made available to eligible juniors and seniors by colleges and universities around the nation. The Best in Show winner receives a purchase award of $500, and the artwork becomes a part of the permanent collection of Mr. James Dodson, on loan to the Knoxville Museum of Art’s Education Collection.

Students, family, friends, and the public are invited to a reception and awards ceremony Tuesday, December 6, from 6 pm-8 pm at the Knoxville Museum of Art. The event is free and open to the public. The East Tennessee Regional Student Art Exhibition is generously sponsored by the Guild of the KMA, Carton Service, Inc., Home Federal Bank, Ann & Steve Bailey, and the Rotary Club of Knoxville.
