Biography: Carl Sublett studied Art History at the American Academy in Florence, Italy, after serving as a sergeant in World War II. He moved to Knoxville in 1954 where he studied with Kermit Ewing and eventually became a Professor of Fine Art at the University of Tennessee. Sublett was a founding member of the art group, The Knoxville Seven, a progressive group working from 1955-1965, which produced some of the first abstract expressionist art in Tennessee. In 1982 he retired from teaching and in 1984, he opened the Sublett Gallery in Knoxville. In 1991, "The Unseen Carl Sublett" was the first exhibit at the new Knoxville Museum of Art (built on the site of the 1982 World's Fair). Sublett won numerous awards for his paintings and was a member of the National Academy of Design. His works are in the collections of the National Academy of Design, The Tennessee State Museum, and Cheekwood, Nashville. (Source: The Tennessee Arts Commission).
