Art House Holiday Party



Story and photography by Liz Lyons

Art House closed the year with a holiday party in a secret location. On the day of the party guests learned the location was Sun Spot, the Cumberland Avenue restaurant owned by Art House supporter Randy Burleson.

Art House was founded in 2016 with the goal of connecting a new generation to the Knoxville Museum of Art by providing exclusive opportunities to learn through art. The group has developed an eclectic roster of fun, social experiences – all focused on art. These range from hosting LA-based artist Tyler Ramsey for an unforgettable art experience involving an oversized canvas and dancers instead of paint brushes to more intimate events inside the homes of Knoxville art collectors.
