Whether you’re looking for that special piece for your home, the perfect gift or to simply explore the superb variety of fine art offered, check out this year’s ARTXTRAVAGANZA Art Show & Sale, Friday, March 3 through Sunday, March 5, at Webb School of Knoxville’s Lee Athletic Center.

One of East Tennessee’s most anticipated fine art events, ArtXtravaganza brings together more than 65 juried artists from across the Southeast and beyond. Guests have the opportunity to view and purchase 2,000-plus original artworks. From oil paintings to sculptures, photography to woodwork, glass and metalworks to jewelry, ArtXtravaganza promises to satisfy every taste and budget.

The event is open to the public, and admission and parking are free. Twenty-five percent of each sale is tax-deductible.

Doors to ArtXtravaganza open at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, March 3. Guests are invited to a Welcome Reception from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The art sale continues Saturday, March 4, from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and Sunday, March 5, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Judy Jarrett of Columbia, S.C. and Charles Pinckney of Athens, Ga. are this year’s featured artists. Jarrett works in several mediums such as watercolors, acrylics and collages. Her mixed media pieces might include discarded clock parts and assorted words (her carryover from 21 years as an English teacher), mixed with various forms of acrylics. Recycled elements, such as old violin shells, may also find their way into her designs.

Jarrett’s art has led her to design wine labels and create pieces for commercial spaces. In 2016, she celebrated her 75th birthday with an exhibition, “300 Seasons: A Colorful Journey,” at The State Botanical Garden of Georgia at the University of Georgia in Athens, Ga. Her work can be seen at her ArtCan Studio & Gallery in Chapin, S.C.

Charles Pinckney’s passion for metalwork is seen in every piece he produces. He has been designing and fabricating wearable and sculptural compositions in metals and other materials for over 50 years.

Pinckney uses forged and welded titanium, sterling, gold, copper, and semi-precious stones, combined with conceptual design and movement, to hand-craft his jewelry. Through traditional metalworking techniques, he creates pieces that speak of connections and provide a narrative, stemming from his personal history. Pinckney is commissioned to make the Smitty Award, given annually by the Georgia Museum of Art to laudable volunteers, and he has exhibited in numerous places ranging from Lincoln Center in New York City to galleries in Miami, Fla.

Throughout its 17-year history, ArtXtravaganza has been instrumental in helping to establish Knoxville as a community aligned with the arts. Reflecting Webb School’s tradition of fostering community by enhancing lives through art education and appreciation, ArtXtravaganza helps support Webb’s visual and performing arts programs. In addition, a portion of the proceeds from this year’s ArtXtravaganza will go toward Knoxville’s Community School of the Arts. ArtXtravaganza will also include a student art exhibition, featuring pieces by Webb Lower, Middle and Upper School grades.
