The First Friday of every month is an extraordinary time in Downtown Knoxville. Local businesses in and around downtown open their doors, & specifically their walls, to local artists’ work on display for the evenings Art Walk. Most of these businesses are not galleries themselves, but rather restaurants, coffee shops, gift shops, & yes, even Salons.
If you have yet to experience First Friday, we suggest you start this week. Lox Salon is joining forces with The Basement Art Studio, Good Golly Tamale, & Gratitude bar to support over 40 different female artists in the Nasty Woman Art Exhibit opening this Friday at 6pm. This exhibit will serve as a fundraiser for the Knoxville Family Justice Center & Girls Rock Camp. 100% of the proceeds from the sale or artwork & submission fees will go to these charities that support & empower women.
“The idea of the Nasty Women Art Exhibit was borne from a group of NYC artists who wanted to show solidarity for women’s rights. The Knoxville exhibit is one of many national exhibitions organized to demonstrate solidarity among female artists and allies who identify with being a Nasty Woman in the face of threats to roll back women’s rights, individual rights, women’s healthcare rights, immigration rights, racial and environmental justice. It also serves as a fundraiser to support organizations defending these rights. The first exhibit was at a warehouse in Brooklyn in January 2017 and served as a fundraiser for women’s health, raising over $43,000 for the cause. Since then Nasty Women exhibits have spread throughout the globe.”
Lox will also be hosting a Pop Up Shop this Friday & Saturday which will include clothing, accessories, as well as specialty hair products & tools, of which a portion of the proceeds will also benefit the KFJC.
We hope you can make it out to this event! It will be one you won’t want to miss.
