[Knoxville] by Design, part of National Architecture Week, is an annual, month-long celebration of Architecture and Design in our community.

The Art Salon has been a staple event for [Knoxville] By Design since the beginning and was envisioned to celebrate and showcase the vast range of original works of art created by architects, designers, emerging professionals, students, and allied professionals in the East Tennessee Region. That means anyone engaged in shaping the built environment (or shaping the minds and conversations that shape the built environment). From woven textiles to ceramics, oil paintings to hand-made musical instruments, the Art Salon highlights the diverse talents of creative professionals in our field.

How it works:

[Knoxville] by Design is quickly approaching, and the Art Salon will kick things off on October’s First Friday by showcasing the vast range of original works of art created by architects and related professionals in East Tennessee.

This year, the work will be displayed at the RED Gallery between the dates of October 6th – 27th, with a First Friday opening celebration taking place October 6th from 5:00-9:00 PM. This gallery is open to the public and hosts several meetings throughout the week.

Please fill out the FORM below by no later than SEPTEMBER 13th if you are interested in displaying work. Each artist can submit 3 submissions. *

*Due to the space limitations of the gallery, there will be a selection process determining how many pieces will be displayed. Please be cognizant of the size of your work in determining how many pieces to submit.
