The exhibition will feature the work of Eleanor Dickinson, Joseph Delaney and the Baumann and Baumann architecture firm.
A public reception and slide lecture by Dickinson will be held Nov. 12 at the gallery.
Dickinson was one of the first UT-Knoxville art department graduates. She teaches at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland. Her work, primarily paintings and drawings, is in museums throughout the country.
