SUMMER 2022 EXHIBITIONS
About Gallery 1010
Gallery 1010 is a contemporary art exhibition space located at 100 S. Gay Street in Suite 114 of The Emporium Center of downtown Knoxville, Tennessee. As one of three University of Tennessee School of Art galleries, Gallery 1010 is the only fully student-run, non-profit, off-campus exhibition space in the state of Tennessee. The mission of Gallery 1010 is to provide space for the School of Art students of the University of Tennessee to experiment and develop new ideas while gaining educational gallery experience in professional standards and practices.
Gallery 1010 provides a location for School of Art artists to exhibit their work, curate exhibitions, and collaborate with other artists or disciplines outside of the School of Art. This professional off-campus gallery is an exceptional opportunity not commonly available at other Universities. The gallery engages the university, the growing downtown Knoxville gallery district, and the community at large by consistently exhibiting innovative, contemporary art work.
Exhibits run for one week and are attended by over 5,000 visitors each semester. Every week the gallery hosts an artist exhibition; totaling around 15 exhibits per semester. The gallery hosts opening receptions on Fridays from 5-7pm and open hours on Saturdays from 10am-1pm. All First Friday opening receptions are open from 5-9pm. Exhibiting artists have Wednesday through Friday to install their exhibit, then de-install or “strike” the show on Monday and Tuesday, leaving the gallery clean and ready for the next artist beginning the process again.

Hanna Seggerman – Director
Hanna Seggerman (she/her), the 2022-2023 Director of Gallery 1010, is a third year MFA in sculpture. In her studio practice she explores various ways to record personal experience through structured systems that allow opportunities of chance to create patterns derived from the language and behavior found within both materials and human beings. She uses a wide variety of media to pursue these explorations through both image and object making. As an educator Hanna values the importance of the collaborative artist community ready to support student artists when given the opportunity to exhibit their artwork in a gallery setting. She looks forward to another year of artists taking risks, learning, and growing at Gallery 1010. Keep up to date with Hanna’s studio practice on Instagram @hannaseggermanart.
