Common Lineage: The Bensons

January 11 - February 9, 2017

Since 2005 Lee Benson, professor of sculpture and ceramics at Union University in Jackson, Tennessee has worked with his wife Betty, and later their four children, Zach, Aaron, Mary, and Sarah to make sculpture and public works. They work mainly in mixed media, the earth, stone, timber, wood, clay and 24k gold producing large-scale architectural forms as well as figurative, narrative monoliths. Residing across the country, they maintain five studios.

The Bensons have produced works from New York City to Australia and have had wide public recognition. They have also recently developed a relationship with Habitat for Humanity and Habitat for Humanity International to use materials used in their sculptures to be repurposed into homes throughout the community.

Their powerful works seem to always declare “We were on this earth!”

Recent Acquisitions
Dual Current: Inseparable Elements in Painting and Architecture

August 31 - October 10, 2017

Dual Current: Inseparable Elements in Painting and Architecture, curated by Gabriele Evertz, examines the relationship between painting and architecture in a contemporary context through color, shape, and theory.

The artists whose works are featured in this exhibition are: Josef Albers (American, born Germany, 1888–1976), Matthew Deleget (American, born 1972), Peter Dudek (American, born 1952), Cris Gianakos (Greek-American, born 1934), Michelle Grabner (American, born 1962), Lynne Harlow (American, born 1968), Changha Hwang (Korean, born 1969), Russell Maltz (American, born 1952), Rossana Martinez (Puerto Rican, born 1969), Kristine Marx (American, born 1969), and Manfred Mohr (German, born 1938). Their works link three-dimensional space and the picture plane to create radical new forms. Dual Current explores the relationship between painting and architecture, closely intertwined since the Renaissance.


Liquid Kingdom: Modeling an Architectural Proving Ground

an exhibition by Smout Allen
November 6 - December 8, 2017

Liquid Kingdom is a speculative design proposal for an environmental 'proving ground' of landscape and architectural installations, sited on the Isle of Sheppey in the Thames Estuary. The project responds to the Isle's unique character, 'shaped by separation, a sense of independence and abrupt contact with nature', and prepares it for the future demands of society and climate change.


2016 exhibitions

AIR Biennial 2016

January 14 - February 18, 2016

The presence of acclaimed artists—who have lived and worked in major cultural centers across the country—enhances the educational opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in the University of Tennessee School of Art. With daily contact over the course of a full semester, resident artists develop a unique relationship with the student body which complements the creative stimulation offered by guest lecturers and the School of Art's faculty. Representing diverse ethnic, cultural, educational, and professional backgrounds, these resident artists introduce another layer of candor and a fresh artistic standard for the students who, though early in their formal art studies, are beginning to develop their own perceptions, skills, and theories in connection with the making of art.

Exhibiting Artists:

Molly Zuckerman-Hartung
Aliza Nisenbaum

69th Annual Student Art Competition

February 29 - March 20, 2016

Begun in 1947 by C. Kermit Ewing, founder of The University of Tennessee School of Art, the annual student exhibition has become one of the oldest competitions in the country and one of the highlights of the Ewing Gallery's exhibition season. This competition has been an outlet for UT's talented students for 66 years, wherein countless works of art of every form and medium have been displayed and applauded by The University and Knoxville community.

The selection of a student art exhibition is a challenging but meaningful task, and we are grateful for this year's jurors: Pete Schulte and Amy Pleasant, Fine Arts, Bob Newman, Graphic Design, and Nathan Rees, Art History.

MFA 2016

In partial fulfillment of their graduation requirements, students pursuing the Master of Fine Arts (MFA) degree are required to mount a solo exhibition of work, and to defend their work during an oral examination in front of a faculty committee. Due to the number of graduate students enrolled in the UT School of Art, these exhibitions generally take the form of small groups of students presenting concurrent solo exhibitions in the gallery space.

Group 1: Kelsey Stephenson, Katherine Farley, and Tatiana Potts

Group 2: Martin Lang, Natalie Petrosky, Peter Cotroneo, and AJ Masterson

Group 3: Keely Snook, Ed MIller, BJ Alumbaugh, and Jade Hoyer

The Unbearable Flatness of Being

September 6 - 29, 2016

Atlanta-based artist Sarah Emerson creates paintings and installations that present viewers with highly stylized versions of nature that combine geometric patterns and mythic archetypes to examine contemporary landscape. Emerson’s lecture will be in A+A 109 at 7PM and is sponsored by the Ewing Gallery. A reception for Emerson’s exhibition, "The Unbearable Flatness of Being", will immediately follow the lecture in the gallery.


Liam Young

October 10 - 30, 2016

In collaboration with the University of Tennessee College of Architecture and Design, October's exhibition will be a presentation of video projects by Liam Young.

Liam Young is a speculative architect who, in his own words, “operates in the spaces between design, fiction and futures”. With his London-based design think tank, Tomorrow’s Thoughts Today, he explores the future implications of emerging urban developments. Named by Blueprint magazine as one of 25 people who will change architecture and design, Young uses fiction and film to discuss probable futures.

The Lure of Maine

November 7 - December 11, 2016

Walter Hollis (Holly) Stevens arrived at UT in the fall of 1957. He was soon introduced to the work of his new Art Department colleague, Carl Sublett who was having a solo exhibition in UT’s Audigier Gallery. Sublett had arrived at UT only 2 years earlier at the request of the department’s founder Kermit Ewing to assist him with painting classes. From the newly formed friendship between Sublett and Stevens, sprang a strong professional bond that they shared for the remainder of their lives.

They enjoyed plein air painting and often traveled together to locations around Knoxville. In their own studio practice, they shared a workaholic attitude towards art production. As artists, they shared an intense studio commitment to painting and drawing.

They both, also, spent summers in Maine. Sublett’s wife Helen was a native of Maine. Her maternal grandparents were farmers on Deer Isle and her paternal grandparents were lobster fishermen in Port Clyde. Helen was born in Port Clyde and inherited her family’s home there. Carl and Helen spent every summer there. Steven’s family had purchased an old farmstead on Deer Isle in 1958. This also became a summer retreat for the Walter and his family. Both of the artists looked forward to visiting their summer homes where they were invigorated and inspired by Maine’s sensory filled environment.

Deer Isle is located on the eastern tip of Penobscot Bay while Port Clyde is on the bay’s western tip. Although across the bay from each other, a 2-hour drive by car separates the two towns. Therefore, Sublett and Stevens spent more time together in Knoxville than in Maine. However, they looked forward to sharing their summer work with each other on their return to Knoxville. They both continued the annual routine of spending the academic year in Knoxville and the summer in Maine until Stevens’ death on Deer Isle in 1980 and until Sublet’s retirement in 1982. After retirement, Sublett continued this annual travel routine until he and Helen permanently relocated to Maine in 2001. Sublett continued to paint there until his death in 2008.

The View Out His Window [and in his mind's eye]

November 7 - December 12, 2016

Jeffery Becton is a photographer and image-maker who lives on Deer Isle, a rocky and forested island off the coast of Maine. Becton makes work, in part, about his surroundings. The extraordinary sweeping coastal views that are such a part of daily life when one lives by the sea are often incorporated into his images. Equally critical is internal life, both the space inside the home (and the comfort and protection it provides from northern New England’s inclement weather), and the introspective and contemplative space that enlivens one’s imagination, which is no doubt encouraged in this stunning and remote location.

2014 Artist in Residence Biennial

January 9 - February 6, 2014

MIchael Berryhill, Jaya Howey, EJ Houser, and Patricia Treib.

Representing diverse ethnic, cultural, educational, and professional backgrounds, these resident artists introduce another layer of candor and a fresh artistic standard for the students who, though early in their formal art studies, are beginning to develop their own perceptions, skills, and theories in connection with the making of art. Although the resident artists present lectures during their stays, it is access to their works of art that is highly anticipated and valued by both the students and the faculty. Therefore, the Ewing Gallery has sponsored group exhibitions of these artists since the inception of the Artist in Residence Program in 1982.

Promiscuous Surfaces: Perry Kulper Drawn Out

October 2 - 26, 2014

Perry Kulper is an architect and associate professor of architecture at the University of Michigan. Prior to his arrival at the University of Michigan he was a SCI-Arc faculty member for 16 years as well as in visiting positions at the University of Pennsylvania and Arizona State University. Subsequent to his studies at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo (BS Arch) and Columbia University (M Arch) he worked in the offices of Eisenman/ Robertson, Robert A.M. Stern and Venturi, Rauch and Scott Brown before moving to Los Angeles. His interests include the roles of representation and methodologies in the production of architecture and in broadening the conceptual range by which architecture contributes to our cultural imagination.

Color Refined

November 10 - December 12, 2014

Color Refined features the abstract works of Beatrice Riese, Siri Berg, Gabriele Evertz, Rella Stuart-Hunt, and Rachel Beach. Born outside of the United States, each woman emigrated here for various reasons – love, education, and to escape political turmoil. The women all chose New York as their home, and their mature art careers developed and flourished in the city. Color Refined focuses on each artist's utilization and exploration of color and color theory as the main feature of her abstract work. This exhibition also celebrates the creative accomplishments of immigrants who enrich and contribute to American culture.

Four x Four

July 1 - July 27, 2012

Media and subject matter were not stipulated at the outset of this exhibition. The pieces on display, therefore, represent an honest ‘work sample’ from a talented segment of the UT community whose artistic skills might otherwise remain unrecognized outside of their duties as staff members. The exhibitors are: Mike C. Berry, Manager of the UT Downtown Gallery; Jessie Van der Laan, UT Print Shop Tech; and Sarah McFalls and Jennifer Stoneking -Stewart, Ewing Gallery staff.

These four artists currently create work that represents a distortion of the natural landscape and addresses the relationship we often have with the idea of "place."

Confabulatores Nocturni

theoretical design project . exhibited
somewhere between sunset and sunrise

From these two incontrovertible premises he deduced that the Library is total and that its shelves register all the possible combinations of the twenty-odd orthographical symbols - a number which, though extremely vast, is not infinite.
- Excerpt from "The Library of Babel" by Jorge Luis Borges
Ce8, Cg7, Ch5, Cf6, Ce4, Ch1 | The CABANON exists somewhere between sunset and sunrise. They are fictions that draw their primary motivation from Diderot and d'Alembert's Encyclopédie. The visual equivalent to the Library of Borges, the Encyclopédie serves as a visual taxonomy of all human knowledge catalogued under the three primary branches of memory, reason, and imagination – past, present, and future. Is it possible that the volumes of the Encyclopédie possess all of our collective spatial fictions? Through the narrative morphosis of collage, each CABANON acquires the personality of a scribe. New fictions surface. Arranged in a columbarium-like wall, the communicative structure between these scribes emerges as a contemplation of the enigmatic Knight's Tour. This ancient and cryptic geometry becomes at times a thanatopsis, at times a colloquy between divines.


Being affected by the housing market crash made me aware of how it has changed the American perception of capitalism and I became painfully aware of the clarity of hindsight and the strength of privileged information.
This theme was explored through the architecture of World War II and Cold War concrete bunkers, watch towers, vaults and subterranean spaces. My sculptures suggest a state that is both permanent and obsolete. I played with the experience of space, engaging the viewer's curiosity to explore and discover the mental and psychological spaces created by the artworks.
The work explored the tension of forced perspectives through narrow horizontal slits and small windows punctuating the walls of the sculptures. A bunker-like sculpture takes the form of an armor mask in human scale; a thirteen foot tower camouflaged in a digital vinyl wrap of trees and nature, articulated by a tiny entry way plays with human scale and the imagination of what it would be like to be inside. Other sculptures allow the viewer limited access to interior stairways and passages - some employing interior lighting that guides the viewer's experience of the byzantine interior.

Pencil Pushed

September 17 - October 28, 2012
curated by Creighton Michael

In this exhibition, the word pencil functions simply as a metaphor or symbol for drawing and its activity. The artists selected are known for their drawing or drawing activity as their primary means of expression and have either pushed the material, process, or boundary of conventional drawing. Media included video, sculpture, animation, installation, and of course, works on paper. This exhibition is neither a survey nor the definitive grouping of mark-making artists. It is more a conversation about artists who have and continue to explore these regions in drawing. The diversity of the exhibition favored mid-career artists, but ranged from emerging to late.

Featured artists in Pencil Pushed are: William Anastasi, William Pittman Andrews, Caroline Burton, Elisa D'ArrigoMary Reid KelleySharon LoudenJennifer MacdonaldPeter Mollenkof
Darcy Brennan PoorBill RichardsBeatrice Riese, Hilda Shen
Drew ShiflettStephen Talasnik, and Sam Vernon

Rhapsody in K-dron

November 1 - 15, 2012

Janusz Kapusta, an acclaimed Polish artist who lives in New York City, will lecture on his work, which will be presented as an exhibition in the Ewing Gallery. The lecture and exhibition is jointly sponsored by the College of Architecture and Design, the School of Art, and the Marek Maria Pienkowski Foundation.

Rhapsody in K-Dron will be a two and three dimensional installation, featuring a model of the K-Dron. The K-Dron is the geometrical form defined by its complexity and subtly. Discovered by Janusz Kapusta in 1985 and patented in 1987, the name K-Dron originates from K, the 11th letter of the alphabet, and GK-EDRON, the Greek word for surface. Being both a remarkably simple and complex structure, its basic form has a square base, 11 multifaceted sides and a diamond-shaped face with a 45-degree angle of inclination. Janusz Kapusta has developed K-Dron’s versatility to invent the K-Dron game in which 8 K-Drons of two colors (black and white) can be manipulated to produce patterns of up to 38,416 possible combinations.

This exhibition is held in honor of Polish Independence Day on November 11th. The exhibition is made possible through the generous support of the Marek Maria Pienkowski Foundation with additional support from the UTK College of Architecture and Design the UTK School of Art, and the Ewing Gallery.


November 18 - December 16, 2012

Quadrivium is Latin for "the four ways" or "the place where four roads meet" and was used during the Renaissance Period to describe the four subjects -- arithmetic, geometry, music, and astronomy -- that were taught after teaching the trivium.

For this exhibition, we are using Quadrivium to describe Knoxville and the School of Art as the place where artistic roads, and artists have met.

Quadrivium features the work of the four most recent additions to the faculty of the School of Art. We are pleased to exhibit work by Joshua Bienko, drawing; Evan Meaney, transmedia design; Althea Murphy-Price, printmaking; and Karla Wozniak, painting.

Artist in Residence Biennial 2010

January 13 - February 21, 2010

The presence of acclaimed artists—who have lived and worked in major cultural centers across the country—enhances the educational opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in the University of Tennessee School of Art. With daily contact over the course of a full semester, resident artists develop a unique relationship with the student body which complements the creative stimulation offered by guest lecturers and the School of Art’s faculty. Representing diverse ethnic, cultural, educational, and professional backgrounds, these resident artists introduce another layer of candor and a fresh artistic standard for the students who, though early in their formal art studies, are beginning to develop their own perceptions, skills, and theories in connection with the making of art. Although the resident artists present a slide lecture during their stay, it is access to their works of art that is highly anticipated and valued by both the students and the faculty. Therefore, the Ewing Gallery has sponsored group exhibitions of these artists since the inception of the Artist In Residence Program in 1982.

Currently held every two years, this exhibition provides a continuing dialogue between artist-teacher and student. The Artist In Residence Biennial also offers our general university and regional community an opportunity to experience a provocative and often challenging exhibition of contemporary art.

Honors Exhibition 2010

Selected by a School of Art Faculty Committee, seven art students from various disciplines were chosen from 12 qualifying applicants for this year’s exhibition. These seven are Jo Beth Richards, Sonja Foard, Derek Whitlock, Bethany Robertson, John Phillips, Leslie Hatten, and Megan Ford.

Documentary artists Warren Lehrer and Judith Sloan create a portrait of an ever-shifting America. This interactive multimedia exhibition uses photos, stories and sounds to intimately portray the lives of new immigrants and refugees living in Queen, New York–a modern day Ellis Island where cultures overlap in a chaotic coexistence.

November 10- December 13, 2008

For a number of years, painters Natalie Alper (Boston), Tim McFarlane (Philadelphia), Larry Webb (New York), and sculptor Diane Simpson (Chicago) have been making strong, consistent and highly developed bodies of work that are grounded in abstraction in varied ways. The project will also include a small concurrent drawing exhibition. Curated by Dan Mills, Director of Samek Gallery, Bucknell University, Lewisburg, PA.
