Botanical Artist is First in Series of Downtown Sevierville Art Exhibits

Art is happening in downtown Sevierville. Local botanical artist Andrea Wilson will exhibit her international award winning etchings June 1–12, 2016 at Courthouse Donuts, 160 Court Avenue in downtown Sevierville, Tenn.

This exhibition is the first in a series sponsored by the Sevierville Commons Arts Council and Sevierville Commons Association. A reception will take place Friday, June 3 from 7–10 p.m. and is free to the public. Enjoy food prepared by Jennifer Dyer of Courthouse Donuts and beverage from Rocky Top Winery. Register to win artwork by Andrea Wilson and learn more about the Sevierville Commons Arts Council.

Wilson’s award winning paintings and etchings are inspired by the landscape of Pittman Center and the surrounding mountains. Growing up in Knoxville, she spent a great deal of time with her grandparents who were avid gardeners. By capturing the subtle details of color and nature’s cycle of beauty and decay she is able to share with the viewer this appreciation for nature given to her by family. Wilson has received numerous awards for her work and is a member of the American Society of Botanical Artists, Southern Highland Craft Guild, Foothills Guild and Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community.

This art exhibit is just one of the great Downtown Sevierville events!
