The First Friday Exhibits have been an important component of HoLa programs for several years. An opening reception takes place from 5:00 PM until 9:00 PM on the First Friday of each month and the exhibits remain through the month. There is no charge to attend either the opening receptions or to view the exhibits during normal business hours.

Art at Casa HoLa
by Angela Masini, Chair, HoLa First Friday/Art Program
In keeping with HoLa’s mission of promoting Hispanic culture, HoLa’s art program
brings to our community art by Hispanic artists or art which in some way highlights
aspects of the Hispanic culture. Typically a new exhibit is installed for the first Friday of
the month. This “First Friday at Casa HoLa” can consist of paintings, graphic art,
photography, ceramics, crafts or folk art. Though most of our artists reside in the East
Tennessee area, we are fortunate to have the collaboration of talented artists in all of
Tennessee. In some cases, our exhibits have attracted artists from other states and
even other countries.
We invite the general public to attend Casa HoLa’s opening reception on the First Friday
of the month, from 5:00 PM until 9:00 PM. All the exhibits remain open for viewing
during most of the month, from Tuesday to Friday, 9:30 until 4:00. Hours are subject to
change, so guests are encouraged to call ahead the HoLa main number, 865-335-3358.
Artists interested in exhibiting their work are invited to submit the “Artist Application”.
