DESCRIPTION

The KMA's collection of approximately 700 objects consists of 20th- and 21st-century works on paper, paintings, mixed media works, sculpture, and fine craft. It continues to grow through gifts from noted artists, galleries, collectors, and foundations, and purchases funded by the Collectors Circle (a museum support group) of important works by artists of regional and national significance. Well-known artists represented in the collection include Charles Burchfield, Robert Longo, Loretta Lux, William Morris, Kenneth Snelson, and Robert Stackhouse, to cite just a few. Choice examples by Catherine Wiley, Joseph Delaney, Walter Hollis Stevens, Richard Jolley, and Bessie Harvey highlight the development of the visual arts in Eastern Tennessee over the past century. Portions of the collection are always on view, including the miniature Thorne period rooms created
