Historic Hauntings
Historic Ramsey House
2614 Thorn Grove Pike
Historic Ramsey House will be introducing to the public, for the first time, the results of the paranormal investigation that was done by Haunted Knoxville’s J. Adam Smith and captured on video by Patrick Watson of Mapletree Productions. In this award winning presentation you will see the long awaited results that may put to rest all the speculation as to whether Historic Ramsey House is haunted. “For years,” said Director Judy LaRose, “there have been reports of spiritual sightings by passerbys, neighbors, visitors and even our own board members and staff. We felt it was time to put the rumors to rest by having a Paranormal Investigation.” The half hour video documents the investigation along with the history of the home and family. There will then be a half hour tour led by J. Adam Smith discussing the details of paranormal investigating. We think you will find this as exciting and fascinating as we did.
Admission: $20 per person (Proceeds go directly to Historic Ramsey House)

Works by Jill Sanders at Bliss Home
29 Market Square

jill sanders

Bliss Home is pleased to present the latest works by Knoxville artist, Jill Sanders, for October's First Friday. Bliss Home will host an opening reception on Friday, October 3rd from 6pm to 9pm. Complimentary Steamboat Sandwiches will be provided and Jill's art will be featured for the month of October. Jill works with acrylic, layering patterns and other found objects into her paintings, often repeating silhouettes or objects throughout a body of work, so that they cross pollinate each other. Jill's work reflects her affinity for natural materials and richly colored patterns which comes from her background in woodcut printmaking and graphic design. Jill's October exhibit is inspired by black-and-white photographs of circus performers and Ziegfeld showgirls from the early twentieth century. Jill has translated these photographs into a modernized color palette and altered their environments. Combining past and present, their life stories are preserved and disseminated through Jill's October exhibit. The exhibit will run October 3-31.
