Dogwood Studio Tour Thanks and New Member

imageOn Saturday, April 11th, The Vacuum Shop participated in the Dogwood Studio Tours. We had close to 50 visitors stop by. We had great conversations with the visitors, and appreciate all that took time on a lovely spring day to learn about our work.

This was the first open studio event with our new member, Erin Mullenex. We are so happy to welcome Erin into the fold.

Renovations and 365 blog

Here at the Vacuum Shop, we’ve been getting a bit of a facelift.

February 8, 2014

This photo is from this time last month, as preparations to put in new windows and doors were getting started. This has meant a bit of reshuffling for all of us, as we await what is going to feel like a brand new space, with more light and a shiny, new exterior.  We’re now in the homestretch, and are looking forward to getting resettled, just in time for spring to finally arrive in Knoxville. In the mean time, we’ve still been hard at work. Many of our artists are going to be featured this month on a great blog, 365 Artists | 365 Days. Ashton Ludden was featured earlier in the month, and Jessie Van der Laan is today’s feature. Keep checking to see some of our other artists pop up here.

If you’re in the Knoxville area, and want to see our artists in person, we’re planning another open studio night on Thursday, April 17.  We’ll have more details soon, but are looking forward to showing off our new and improved space.  We hope to see you there!
