We’re excited to introduce our newly renovated upstairs gallery space, used to exhibit and highlight the artwork of Knoxville’s local artists. We’ll host a different local artists’ work each month for you to enjoy!
Currently Showing: Artist Adam Deal
Adam Pernell Deal is an illustrator and performance artist working in Knoxville’s underground art scene. His art is influenced by Albrecht Durer’s detailed woodcuts, Austin Spare’s esoteric symbolism, and a pleasant childhood spent in the woods and abandoned buildings of rural Pennsylvania and Tennessee.
Adam’s illustration work is primarily in ink and watercolor, generated through surrealist automatism. His guided hand reproduces worlds and their inhabitants beyond the veil, whether they may be on the far side of the universe, or as near as the empty lot next door. Adam is currently working on fantasy- based children’s literature, gothic rock n’ roll, and his biceps. You’ll often find him in DIY studio spaces or corner tables of coffee shops. He crafted his technique in the moonlight.
His works will be on display at the historic Bijou Theatre through March 31st.
Please join us for the Bijou’s First Friday Party and Adam’s art reception on Friday, March 2nd from 5:00 – 9:00 PM.
If you’re a local artist who’s interested in displaying your art in the gallery, please reach out to Courtney, email@example.com, to inquire about exhibiting your work.
