Student Submissions Now Being Accepted; Proceeds To Benefit Knox County Art and East Tennessee Student Scholarship Program
KNOXVILLE—Professionals from the local chapters of the American Institute Of Graphic Artists (AIGA) and the American Advertising Federation (AAF) are collaborating on an art show that will feature Knox County student submissions and benefit arts programs in Knox County Schools.
“Budding Creativity,” to be held April 3, will showcase submissions from students and professionals throughout the county. The show is free (as are submissions), and work submitted will be sold at the end of the show to benefit art programs and AAF’s Sam Littleton student scholarship fund.
Teachers, students and professionals who would like to donate artwork can do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. All media—painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, etc.—are accepted.
This is the second annual show of its type. Last year AIGA raised $550 and donated needed art supplies to Norwood Elementary. The show, to be held in the main gallery of Paulk and Co., is free to the public. Light hors d’oeuvres and music will refresh and entertain attendees. People are encouraged to purchase student artwork, to bid on silent auction pieces by professional artists, and/or to donate money to the cause.
To learn more, submit work, or make a donation, visit the show website, www.knoxvillebuddingcreativity.com. The deadline for submissions is March 20.
