November Featured Artist

Southern Fried Gallery is proud to present our November Featured Artist Mary Bartholomew and her stoneware pottery.

Mary has been creating pottery for about five years and is accomplished in wheel thrown pottery and hand built clay work. She spends many hours in her home studio in West Knoxville, as well as other larger studios around the area. Mary's inspiration is nature and the world around her – which is clearly visible in the art she creates. She focuses mainly on creating functional pieces that are typically simplistic in style, then finishes each piece with its own unique touch. The clay bodies and glazes used are oven, microwave, and dishwasher safe.
Mary says that working with clay allows her to artistically express herself, and finds potting to be a very relaxing way to spend her time. Mary's motto:  Life is short… play in mud!
Don't miss your opportunity to meet and visit with Mary Bartholomew during the Art Walk at Trillium Cove's Featured Artist Tour on Friday, November 11  from 4-6pm.  Enjoy wine and finger foods, while you browse the incredible selection of her work available now at Southern Fried Gallery.

May Featured Artist: Jeffrey Stoner

Southern Fried Gallery is proud to present our May Featured Artist Jeffrey Stoner and his Fine Art Photography.

Jeffrey Stoner is known for making photographs that capture the essence of place.  His passion is to capture images of the beauty and wonder that surrounds us.  From the mystery of a trail leading through the fog, to the beauty of rhododendron flowers highlighted by the first rays of dawn, his images tell a story that touch the spirit.

Originally from Pennsylvania, he relocted to Kingsport, TN in 2007.  Jeffrey made this move so he could be within a short drive of the unlimited photo opportunites available in the mile-high mountains and fertile valleys of this region.
