Elaine Barnes of Harriman is among the four artists whose works will be featured during “The Muse Among Us,” a mixed-media exhibit of The Arts & Culture Alliance of Knoxville.

The exhibition will be displayed in the Balcony at the Emporium Center in downtown Knoxville from May 4-25, with an opening reception as part of First Friday activities from 5 to 9 p.m. May 4.

Barnes and the other artists featured in this exhibition draw draw inspiration from nature, memories and dreams.

“My work in clay and glass reflects the beauty in nature that surrounds me daily,” Barnes said. “Whether it is the vibrant colors of flowers, the ripple of water, or the reflection of the setting sun, each piece is influenced in some way.”

“The Muse Among Us” will be displayed in the Balcony at the Emporium Center, 100 S. Gay St.

Gallery hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. Additional hours are from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on May 5.
