ARTXTRAVAGANZA is Webb School’s annual art sale that features original artworks by nearly 70 acclaimed artists and offers affordable works for everyone – from fine art, handcrafted jewelry and pottery to glass art, sculptures and metal art.
This three-day event is held on the Webb School of Knoxville
campus in West Knoxville. Now in its 18th year, ArtXtravaganza has rapidly grown to become one of the premier art shows in the Southeast, and has helped to further the careers of prominent artists.
ArtXtravaganza showcases the amazing range and diversity of artistic talent in the region and beyond, and helps establish Knoxville as a community aligned with the arts. Also on exhibit are works by Webb Lower, Middle and Upper School students.
Each year, ArtXtravaganza hosts a featured artist. Painter Alex Smith of Brooklyn, NY is ArtXtravaganza's featured artist for 2018. A native of Knoxville, TN, Smith was the featured artist at Knoxville's 2013 Dogwood Arts Festival and has presented his work at a variety of private galleries and juried exhibitions from Knoxville to New York.
Proceeds from ArtXtravaganza support Webb School of Knoxville
’s visual and performing arts programs, including the Artist-In-Residence Program. A four-to-six-week on-campus teaching and learning experience, this program features nationally and internationally acclaimed artists. It provides Webb students with a view into the real world of art by exposing them to professional artists, their work and their perspectives, and inspires students to explore their own creative abilities. In addition, a portion of the proceeds from ArtXtravaganza help support a local arts integrated school.
