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.
Meet the Team of Gallery 1010
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.
Landin Eldridge – Associate Director
Landin Eldridge (she/her/hers) is the Associate Director of Gallery 1010 and a second year MFA student in Painting and Drawing. Originally from a small town in North Carolina, she received her BA in Studio Art and Theatre from Davidson College in 2021. Landin was thrilled to show at Gallery 1010 for the first time in the Spring of 2022, collaborating with fellow MFA grad Chloe Wack to produce “Baby Show: A Show of Babies.” In her studio practice, Landin explores concepts of intimacy, embarrassment, memory, fear, and relationship through the use of humor. Although she primarily works in drawing and soft sculpture, she looks forward to attempting a more digital approach this semester. Landin is THRILLED to be working with Gallery 1010!

Griffin Allman – Gallery Attendant
Griffin Allman (he/him), one of two Gallery Attendants at Gallery 1010, is a second year MFA candidate in painting and drawing at the University of Tennessee. In his studio practice, Griffin explores and experiments with painting and drawing media alongside found objects and surfaces to create texturally-rich work that emphasizes process over product. He has specific interests in topics such as geometry, graffiti and visual pollution that are incorporated into an artistic process that operates between the geometric and the organic. Griffin received his BFA in Painting and his BA in Art Education from Kent State University in Ohio in 2021, and supports an inclusive teaching style that places the student at the forefront of the creative process.
