Artist Talk with Alyssa Imes @ FAC Art Center
Join us on August 12th for a mixer and artist’s talk highlighting the work of our current immersive solo exhibition located on the second floor of the FAC Art Center.

Mixer begins at 5:00. Artist talk begins at 6:00.

Currently on display is Unstructured Rise by Knoxville artist Alyssa Imes from June 6th – September 23rd, 2022

The art installation, Unstructured Rise, features a variety of  materials including textiles and cast iron that highlight Alyssa’s approach to creating a multi-media experience for her viewers. Imes’ work is about personal connections and social interactions that open new doors and which create a network of emotional relationships. Imes’ focus is to spread awareness of growth after trauma. “Unstructured Rise” serves as a retrospective of Imes’ work as an artist.

Alyssa Imes grew up in Emmitsburg, Maryland. She received her undergraduate degree from Shepherd University in 2018. She uses mediums of knitted fibers and communal cast iron. She graduated with her MFA from University of Maryland in May 2022. She has a small cast iron furnace. Currently her work has transitioned from heavy iron work to light fiber works. Through the years of her art practice she is always inspired by connections she makes with people.
