Fall A&E Preview: Art

While the fall’s colors riot outside, Knoxville’s intrepid gallery and museum curators are planning feasts for the eyes indoors. We’re so rich in options that a patron can take different approaches—find solace in the familiar, or stretch with something new, like collages made from film stills, say, or sound sculptures that explore ideas about space. There is plenty of room for the uninitiated, too—just walk in. Someone will show you around, or you can see for yourself.
