October First Friday with Jill Sanders & Bliss Home!
Bliss Home is pleased to present the latest works by Knoxville artist, Jill Sanders, for October’s First Friday. Bliss Home, located at 29 Market Square, will host an opening reception on Friday, October 3rd from 6pm to 9pm. Complimentary Steamboat Sandwiches will be provided and Jill’s art will be featured for the month of October.

Jill works with acrylic, layering patterns and other found objects into her paintings, often repeating silhouettes or objects throughout a body of work, so that they cross pollinate each other. Jill’s work reflects her affinity for natural materials and richly colored patterns which comes from her background in woodcut printmaking and graphic design.

Jill’s October exhibit is inspired by black-and-white photographs of circus performers and Ziegfeld showgirls from the early twentieth century. Jill has translated these photographs into a modernized color palette and altered their environments. Combining past and present, their life stories are preserved and disseminated through Jill’s October exhibit.

Learn more about Jill in our exclusive interview below!

Can you tell me a little about your background and what you are currently working on.

I studied woodcut printmaking and graphic design at Skidmore College. After college, I began my career as a designer in Boston and NYC, working in advertising and magazine publishing. I didn’t begin painting until 2007.

Which piece are you most excited about for your upcoming First Friday exhibit?

I don’t have one that is a particular favorite. That is what I enjoy most about making these…they each tell a unique story. I enjoy seeing how they come together in a fuller context. When they are all together, it completes an experience, not just an instance.

 

Can you tell me about the theme of your show?

The theme is “Under the Big Top.” I have been looking through black-and-white photographs from the early twentieth century, mostly circus performers, other Ziegfeld showgirls, that resonate with my love for history and the femme psyche. I began reading about their life stories and translating these photographs into a modernized color palette and altered environments. By combining past and present, I hope to retell their stories through these paintings.

What do you like/dislike about your show? Any frustrations during production?

I love the different personalities of each piece. Time is always a frustration for me…there is never enough! However, if there were no deadlines, then there would be no end goal. It is bittersweet.

What advice would you give young artists?

Show your work, do what you love, and never give up on your vision.

Who is your favorite artist? How do they influence your work?

I really enjoy Jennifer Davis’s paintings and painted carousel horses. Her color palettes are electrifying. She travels all along the east coast to find these vintage carousel animals to inspire her body of work.

Small Space Solutions

I love small space living. Whether it’s a cozy bungalow, an urban loft, or something in between, the “less is more” concept continues to grow.  Many homeowners are actually now choosing to leave their larger dwellings behind in favor of these more intimate and creative environments. 

What’s that you say ??  Your mammoth, solid cherry four-poster bed won’t even fit through the front door ??  Oh yes, there is that one minor detail.

While true that decorating these unique spaces can be a bit challenging at first, the key is selecting pieces that balance style, scale, and purpose.  And fun … Did I mention fun ?? 

Let’s take a look at some of my favorite small space solutions !!


image
Our extremely versatile reclaimed wood nesting tables are big on multi-function: use as side tables flanking a sofa, portable surface space for parties and holidays, or even as nightstands.

image

Not every bedroom can take a king or even queen size bed.  Many of our most popular styles are available in full size. Keep things simple with a classic espresso platform frame, or get creative by customizing one of our contemporary metal beds in a variety of finishes.

image

Instantly add architecture and style with our natural bamboo writing desk.  While perfect for the down-sized office,  try setting it up with a pair of chairs for an unexpected dining table for two.

image


Don’t have space for floor or table lamps ?  Even the tightest of rooms deserve good lighting.  Our double-shaded sconces and ceiling pendants bring a casual elegance to any design.


With the largest local selection of casual-contemporary furnishings and accessories, you’ll be sure to find your favorite small space solution.

Bliss Home, located at 29 Market Square in downtown Knoxville, will host an opening reception on Friday, September 5th from 6pm to 9pm. Complimentary Steamboat Sandwiches will be provided and Dennis' art will be featured for the month of September.

     


Dennis Sabo, a Loudon resident, is an internationally honored photographer specializing in contemporary abstract, and landscape photography. His award-winning work has appeared in various publications, television, the Internet and institutions, among them NOVA, PBS, National Geographic, and Blue Planet. 

A frequent lecturer and workshop instructor, Sabo is mostly known for his fine art abstracts of the natural world. He has refined the fine-art photograph into an interpretive collage of color and texture. The title for this exhibition is Secret Life of Plantsan impressionistic and expressionistic art view of this very special component of nature. 

RSVP here.

Learn more about Dennis in our exclusive interview below!

Can you tell me a little about your background and what you are currently working on.

I honed my compositional and creative photographic skills when I worked as an underwater assignment photographer, and progressed from there. A sampling of past clients include National Geographic, Hilton Hotels, NOVA, Ocean Conservancy, and Blue Planet.  Today I am known more for my fine art abstract and scenic photographic Metal prints.  Presently, I am working on a Glacier series from Mount Rainier exploring the textural, colors, and repeating patterns of the mountain.

Which piece are you most excited about for your upcoming First Friday exhibit?

The Gathering. A Metal Print  of autumn leaves caught up in the cobalt blue whirlpool of a tiny creek bed.  It is a gorgeous piece with a multitude of colors, textures, and patterns.

Can you tell me about the theme of your show?

The Secret Life of Plants is an impressionistic and expressionistic art view of this very special component of nature.

What do you like/dislike about your show? Any frustrations during production?

No frustrations just difficulty in deciding which art pieces made the final cut for Bliss.  I could have done a variety of different exhibitions of my artwork with this theme.

What advice would you give young artists?

If you are a photographer shoot images that make you happy. Happiness is the beginning point to the fuel which is your own inspiration.  If you are happy you will be inspired and your body of work will benefit.

Who is your favorite artist? How do they influence your work?

Monet as a painter and Elliot Porter as a photographer.  I challenge myself to capture common subjects that are often overlooked and then refine the photograph into an interpretive collage of color, motion, and textures. My interest is in the natural details; how the environment on a particular day, in a particular light, and at a particular moment in time correlates to my personal vision and interpretation of nature.
