Poster for PKN Knoxville Vol. 9

Beth Meadows is a talented local artist who is well known for her creative abstractions of found objects, architectural spaces, and historic structures.  She volunteered her time to design the poster for Knoxville's 9th Pecha Kucha and for that we are grateful!    She choose this painting for the poster for the architectural qualities and proportion of the space - perfect for the integration of PKN into Architecture Week!  The couple [and their cats] are taking time from thier busy schedules to sit quietly and listen.  Sometimes PKN can get a little rowdy but the reason we all attend is to listen to a passionate community member share thier craft with us.  It is an inspiring evening of reflection and gratitde.   Beth Meadows graduated from the University of Tennessee with a BFA in Studio Art in 2007. She has lived and worked in Knoxville since then and currently manages The Salvage Room for the non-profit Knox Heritage, receiving and selling historic building materials. She is also the Director, as well as an artist, of 17th Street Studios, a work space for thirteen artists near downtown Knoxville.
