Brian Jobe, an artist and Pellissippi State Community College Art adjunct faculty member, has grown accustomed to seeing his works featured in the press. From a 2004 mention in the University of Tennessee’s Daily Beacon while he was an undergraduate student to a feature in NY Arts Magazine for a 2008 solo exhibition in San Antonio, Texas, Jobe appreciates the importance of getting the word out about his art.
His recent appearance in Art in America Magazine, however, provides exposure that potentially surpasses the more than two dozen other press clippings he has collected since 2004. Billed as “the world’s premier art magazine,” Art in America covers art news in the United States and abroad. Published since the 1920s, the magazine is one with a strong reputation.
Jobe’s sculpture installation covered by Art in America was in “Artists to Watch at the Governors Island Art Fair,” an article profiling a juried art show on Governors Island in New York Harbor. Jobe was among 113 artists selected to display his work at the month-long fair. He drove from Knoxville to New York to install his sculpture.
Jobe, who has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Tennessee and a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Texas at San Antonio, is slated to teach two sections of Drawing I during the spring 2010 term at Pellissippi State.
