Encounters: Denise Stewart-Sanabria
October 7, 2018 – January 20, 2019
The latest exhibition in this long-standing showcase for outstanding regional contemporary art focuses on the distinctive work of this celebrated Tennessee artist. Stewart-Sanabria produces
both hyper-realist “portraits” of everything from produce to subversive jelly donuts, and full-scale, cut-out charcoal on plywood drawings of contemporary people that she uses to create
conceptual installations. A native of Massachusetts, she received her BFA in Painting from the University of Massachusetts/Amherst, and has lived in Knoxville since 1986. Organized by HMA.
