Encounters: Denise Stewart-Sanabria

Exhibition Website

Oct 7 2018 - Jan 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.
