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 seventeenth 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 of artistic talent in the region and helps establish Knoxville as a community aligned with the arts. Each year, ArtXtravaganza hosts a featured artist. This year, the show will feature two artists: Judy Jarrett of Columbia, SC and Charles Pinckney from Athens, GA. Proceeds from ArtXtravaganza support Webb School of Knoxville’s visual and performing arts programs. The launch of a partnership with Mooreland Heights Elementary School in which a portion of the proceeds from ArtXtravaganza benefit Mooreland Heights’ arts program began in 2011.
