Welcome to the School of Art website. I hope you will find yourself returning often to learn more about the School and our various events and activities—from the annual School-wide charrette every January to the lecture series offered by visiting artists, designers and scholars; from the professional exhibitions in The Ewing Gallery of Art and Architecture and The UT Downtown Gallery to the calendar of undergraduate and graduate student exhibitions that change weekly throughout the year at Gallery 1010; from news of the latest accomplishments of our faculty and students to the inventory of equipment available for student check-out from the School of Art Media Pool.
US News & World Report currently ranks the School of Art at the University of Tennessee as tied at 17th among art programs at public universities across the country. Our graduate program in Printmaking is now ranked 3rd nationally, from a total of some 200 programs. These rankings are significant, but we are especially proud of the many accomplishments of our faculty, our alumni, and our students.

Begun in 1947 by C. Kermit Ewing, founder of The University of Tennessee School of Art, the annual student exhibition has become one of the oldest competitions in the country and one of the highlights of the Ewing Gallery's exhibition season. This competition has been an outlet for UT's talented students for 67 years, wherein countless works of art of every form and medium have been displayed and applauded by The University and Knoxville community.
The selection of a student art exhibition is a challenging but meaningful task, and we are grateful for this year's jurors: Angela Ho (Art History) John Pearson and Pamela Jorden (Fine Arts), and MIchael Hendrix (Graphic Design).
The Opening Reception for Expo, the 67th Annual Student Art Competition will be Friday, March 7, from 6-8PM with awards announced at 7PM. Please join us for this beloved event! Expo will close Friday March, 14 at 2PM.
