Cynthia Markert figured out her specialty a long time ago, and she’s spent most of her career refining it into a crystalline personal vision. Her long, angular flapper-like figures, populating a fantastic, vaguely Art Deco/Symbolist space, are iconic images around Knoxville, in living rooms, galleries, and on a few select walls around downtown. In recent years Markert’s reach has expanded to Target, where prints of her original multimedia-on-wood paintings are now available all over the country.
