KNOXVILLE, TN – The Arts & Culture Alliance presents the eighth annual Knoxville Photo juried exhibition featuring selected works from 32 artists throughout the region on display July 3-31 in the main gallery of the Emporium Center.

The exhibition encompasses photographs depicting all subjects and genres, including streetscapes, cityscapes, landscapes, environmental portraiture, portraits, abstracts, and more.

Rocky Kenworthy served as juror for the exhibition and viewed 364 images to select the exhibition. Kenworthy has worked in the photography industry for more than 35 years. Arriving in New York City in the late 1980s, he spent 10 years working and collaborating with photographers, photo editors, design firms and advertising agencies in various capacities as assistant, production coordinator, photographer, and retoucher.

He established Dot Editions in 2005, one of the strongest boutique fine art printing studios on the East Coast.

In 2013, Kenworthy established a presence for Dot Editions in Asheville, NC where he continues his passion for developing a collaborative style print studio for local, regional, and international artists alike.

In 2019, Rocky launched The Gallery @ Dot Editions as an experiment in the discovery, preservation, and collection of bodies of photographic work that offer a unique lens into the world at a given place in time.

Over $1,000 in cash awards will be announced on July 3. Most of the works are for sale and may be purchased through the close of the exhibition.
