Fall Exhibit by Helene Fielder and Noah Saterstrom

We have been so fortunate to display the latest work from Helene Fielder and Noah Saterstrom.  Helene’s clay sculptures and Noah’s figurative oil paintings are very complementary as displayed in the front section of the gallery.  The opening reception was...
Surprise Visit to Grenada

Surprise Visit to Grenada

When it’s time to swap or pick up new art, I regularly meet artists half way between Tupelo and their home to help reduce time away from their studio.  Since so many artists live in central and southern portions of the state, it really takes up a lot of the day...
5th Anniversary and the Need for More Art

5th Anniversary and the Need for More Art

Celebrating our fifth anniversary last week was very surreal for me.  It seems like yesterday I was developing the website and wondering if I could find artists who would trust me to represent their art.  Now there are over 5o artists represented in the gallery and...

Gallery’s new home

Gallery’s new home

Wow!  I can’t believe we are moving to a new spot in downtown Tupelo.  I had always imagined the gallery being located in an old building, with tall brick walls and quaint features.  Three years ago, we had to beg for someone to lease a space to us.  The rent...

Website update

When I decided to open the gallery three and a half years ago, I was determined the gallery website would be an integral part of it.  I felt the website should come before the storefront.  I knew it was very important to have an internet presence from day one.  I...
