December 24th, 2011 8:26 am by staff report

Virginia Intermont College Professor Marvin Tadlock’s artwork has been selected for inclusion in the 2011 National Juried Exhibition, on display at the Emporium Center Gallery in Knoxville through Jan. 27.

Tadlock’s self-portrait “Sculptor Gone Flat” is among works from 38 artists representing the Southeast and Midwest chosen for the exhibit, presented by Knoxville’s Arts & Culture Alliance.

Featuring both traditional and non-traditional work, the National Juried Exhibition was developed in 2006 to provide a forum for local artists to compete on a national scale and display their highest-quality work.

A multiple award winner in national as well as local competitions and a frequent exhibitor, Tadlock earned his Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of North Carolina, Greensboro, and received a doctorate in education from the University of Georgia.

He is critically acclaimed for his kinetic sculptures that make steel look like flowing liquid. Many of his works are on permanent display throughout the Southeast, including at the Virginia Intermont campus.

Neely Hyde is juror for the 2011 National Juried Exhibition. She holds both a bachelor’s degree and a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. Hyde’s professional arts background includes working for art galleries and magazines in New York City, teaching film and art appreciation at UT and Roane State, and working as the Director of Exhibits and Media Arts for the Association for Visual Arts.

Hyde currently serves as the 2011 instructor and visiting artist for the AVA Reel Stories Documentary Project, teaching video classes and workshops, working as a commercial photographer in Chattanooga and exhibiting her fine art photography around the region.

Knoxville’s Emporium Center, 100 S. Gay St., is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, with additional hours from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 7.
