About / Contact

Begun in 1981, the Ewing Gallery of Art + Architecture is a professionally managed university gallery, funded jointly by the School of Art and the College of Architecture and Design. We are an on-campus space for the campus and community to connect with art. The gallery coordinates exhibitions that represent current attitudes in art and architecture, supports the curricula of the School of Art, The College of Architecture and Design, and campus constituents, and serves as a cultural resource for Knoxville and East Tennessee. The gallery’s permanent collection holds over 5000 objects for study with focuses on contemporary printmaking and works by Knoxville-born Joseph Delaney. The Samuel A. Yates collection study room and program was established in 2021 to provide students opportunities for more in-depth access to works held in the permanent collection as part of their classroom and studio experience.
