The Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Gallery is planning exhibitions for December 2022 through March of 2024. Artists living within 250 miles of Knoxville are encouraged to submit proposals.

This premier, not-for-profit gallery, located just west of The University of Tennessee, programs eight exhibitions per year, showcasing regional artists working in a wide variety of styles, media, and genres. The gallery can only show work that is two-dimensional and ready to hang in a professional manner. Work must be appropriate for audiences of all ages and will be decided on by the art committee. The TVUUC Art Gallery Committee reserves the right to pair artists for two-person exhibitions but will also consider artists for one-person exhibitions as well as group shows by arts organizations. Exhibitions typically run for two months.
