Admission to the exhibit is free and open to the community. The event is located at Chattanooga WorkSpace at 302 W 6th St., Chattanooga.

The emerging artist event is part of Chattanooga WorkSpace’s Open Studio Nights. The event will feature artwork by Ooltewah High seniors Jacob Fontanilla, Quinn Sisunik, Madeline Svoboda, and Loren Usher. Director of Special Projects and Development, Breck Stewart, partnered with students for the event by providing the perfect stage to display their work at Open Studio Night in the WorkSpace Gallery. The exhibition showcases both artworks by the students and local professional artists currently in residence at the facility.

The exhibition is under the direction of International Baccalaureate Art Instructor Andrea McGuirt and explores several themes related to indoor and outdoor environments, video gaming, growth and development, and human empathy. The exhibit also features investigative studies in various media.

Open Studio Nights are in participation with First Friday Chattanooga – The Arts, which seeks to showcase Chattanooga’s art community on the first Friday of each month. This event is a family-friendly opportunity to support some of Hamilton County’s student artists. Dish T’ Pass will serve hors d’oeuvres during the exhibit.
