Collaborative Exhibit At AVA Gallery Invites Artists To Take Art, Leave Art


This fuzzy hat was one of the most eye-catching pieces at Take Art/Leave Art.

We’ve covered a lot of art exhibits on Around and About, but never one like quite this.  It’s called Take Art/Leave Art, and it opened at the AVA Gallery in Chattanooga Friday night.

Listen to the story.


Artists prepare to exchange art at the Friday night exhibit opening.

From the AVA Gallery Web site:


Take Art / Leave Art
March 4 – April 1
Opening Reception: Friday, March 4, 5:30-8 p.m.
Closing Reception: Friday, April 1, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Take Art / Leave Art is a community-based collaborative art exhibition where you are asked to donate as much work as you would like to “exchange”. We encourage submissions from all areas of expertise—nothing is too good, too bad or too weird. We will accept and encourage works from all media and all scales, as long as you can get it to AVA and get it in the doors. We want paintings, sculptures, sketches, crafts, drawings, videos, songs, ceramics, floral arrangements, doodles, prints, photographs, walking sticks, poems, found objects, shoes, Christmas ornaments, macramé, dolls, thought experiments, ideas, or anything else you can think of. If its art to you, then bring it.

Take Art / Leave Art is a project of Michigan. Michigan is a loose experiment that focuses on community involvement and multi-faceted collaborative projects. This group consists of UTC alum Tara Harris and Daniel Wroe. For more information about future projects or questions concerning Take Art / Leave Art please feel free to email Tara: Fend13th@gmail or Daniel:
