Beth Meadows - Featured Artist at the Tomato Head


My dear artist friend Beth Meadows is a lovely soul and is now showing in downtown Knoxville. You can see for yourself some of her work at the Tomato Head on Market Square from now until May 2 in a show titled "The Sound of a Train at Night: Paintings and Prints by Beth Meadows." After that her work will magically transcend from downtown Knoxville and alight on the Tomato Head in Maryville from May 3 - June 7.

The show went up this past Saturday at TomHead HQ so I stopped in to check it out. Despite the fact that it is a sit down joint, the Tomato Head is a great place to view art. While savoring your Kepner Melt you can get a taste of something even better and you don't have to eat it (and it's free)! Beth's work, based on memories from childhood, will evoke memories of your own as it takes you through dark lit streets with power lines hanging overhead or into an empty living room set aglow by the light of a television set.

Whatever your taste demands, Beth's show is worth checking out. See my personal favorite between the windows on the right wall in a small frame. Stop in, grab a bite and enjoy one of Knoxville's best kept secrets.


UPDATE: Beth also has work hanging at Blackbird Coffeehouse in Sequoyah Hills. Check it out: http://www.blackbirdcoffeehouse.blogspot.com/
