Broadway Studios and Gallery presents Beautiful and Delicious

Broadway Studios and Gallery (BSG) presents the art exhibit entitled ‘Beautiful and Delicious’ for the month of October. Regular gallery hours are 10-6 Friday and Saturday.

‘Beautiful and Delicious’ displays the talent of artist Yvonne Bartholomew Thomas (Seymour). Yvonne studied commercial art at MTSU but then discovered the love of oil paint.

Her work in ‘Beautiful and Delicious” is the combination of two things she loves. Beautiful flowers and delicious hamburgers.

Once called the “hamburger lady” after an exhibit at Fountain City Art Center, she decided that she liked the moniker.

Her hamburger paintings are of a very large proportion and are deceptively realistic although there is only thick paint applied which is known as impasto.

Hamburgers are not the only thing that receive such treatment. The other paintings that are of a different subject matter is that of beautiful flowers. These paintings radiate beautiful rich colors and are extremely large which envelope the viewer’s field of vision.

A great exhibit that will not disappoint.

Earlier this year Yvonne’s mother passed away after a battle with cancer and Yvonne is dedicating this show to her. Donations are welcome a portion of the proceeds of the sale of her work will be given to the American Cancer Society.

BSG is located 1127 N Broadway, Knoxville and is found one block south of WATE TV studios in Greystone Mansion next to Vinyard Floor Covering.

BSG is a co-op of 12 artists working in studios under one roof. They hold monthly exhibits, operate a retail store and offer private lessons.
