Sure to be a highlight of the festival is Jered Sprecher’s Outside In, a debut solo museum exhibition by the UT School of Art professor that reflects the dynamic range of his recent work. His layout design is inspired by the centuries-old practice of adorning living spaces with motifs derived from the natural world. Here, muted images of birds and flowers appear sporadically, often embedded between layered abstract passages. To learn more about Sprecher’s stunning works, preview the exhibition with this video filmed and edited by Paul Harrill. This short artist video documents Sprecher’s preparations for his show at the Knoxville Museum of Art.
