The Ewing Gallery

The Ewing Gallery is named in honor of C. Kermit “Buck” Ewing who initiated the art curriculum at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, in 1948. Begun in 1981, the Ewing Gallery of Art and Architecture is a professionally managed university gallery, funded jointly by the School of Art and the College of Architecture and Design. It is located on the first floor of our very own Art + Architecture Building. We host exhibitions by acclaimed designers, who also lecture in the space, and our award-winning student work is exhibited each year.
