Hart Gallery Tennessee, Chattanooga

#8 of 11 in Shopping in Chattanooga
While walking down Main Street one evening, enjoying the public art that has become prevalent in Chattanooga, Ellen Heavilon happened upon Homes, a work by Frances McDonald, Julie Clark and Mark Making. Homes is a mosaic of tiles that were individually created by homeless persons in the Chattanooga area. Ellen was so moved by the power of the art and the quality of the pieces that she got the idea to build on the concept of ‘Home’ and expand the mission from the homeless to any non-traditional artist in the area that may not otherwise have the opportunity to express themselves through their art.

  • This is an amazing not-for-profit organization. Their mission is to offer homeless person's and other non-traditional artists a space to create and sell their art. You can purchase art from the gallery. If you purchase a price, 60% of the sale will go to the artist, 30% of the sale goes to the gallery for rent and supplies, and the last 10% the artist chooses which not-for-profit charity the artist would like to donate to. We purchased a beautiful piece and cannot wait to hang it.
  • I come to Chattanooga a couple of times a year and just wondered in this AM. The art and jewelry here is nothing less than running. Manager told me all the artists are dealing with some sort of adversity or are veterans, some are homeless. Please stop in. I was amazed.
  • This is a really wonderful gallery which works to help those in the community who need it most.
  • Nice place to buy wall art
  • Very beautiful place
