Knoxvillians- if you’re planning on hitting the First Friday circuit this week, stop by the Midtown Art Center at 513 Cooper Street (near the Old Gray Cemetery, on the corner of 5th and Cooper under the interstate). It’s a cool space that up until this Friday has been used primarily as a concert space for punk rock bands, but the owners are trying to expand the place to become an art center and get on the First Friday map. Plus, you can see some pretty things I made hanging on the wall as part of their art show (art show will be 5 – 9 pm, music from 9 – 11). If nothing else, go for the free wine.
Here’s a mini blurb about it in the News-Sentinel, and here’s info straight from the curator:
