Open since 1994, Tanner-Hill Gallery once exclusively featured contemporary southern outsider art, placing major pieces in private, corporate and museum collections. In 2004, the gallery broadened its scope to incorporate emerging and mid-career sculptors and painters as well as their earlier core of self-taught artists. Located in a remodeled 19th century saddle factory on South Broad Street in Chattanooga, Tennessee, the 3000 square foot gallery space serves as the backdrop for approximately seven to nine changing exhibits annually.
Over the years, Tanner-Hill Gallery has worked with prestigious institutions such as the New Museum of Contemporary Art and the Whitney Museum, both in New York City, the High Museum of Atlanta in Georgia, as well as the Hunter Museum and Knoxville Museum, both based in Tennessee. In addition, the gallery has worked privately with individual collectors and corporations to build a solid core of contemporary American paintings and sculpture. The gallery has also been an exhibitor at national and international art fairs in Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, and San Francisco.

Although we do feature some emerging artists, the gallery focuses primarily on established, mid-career artists. Interested artists may submit an information packet to the gallery, which should include a disk of select digital images, a CV, and price list. Any information sent will be kept on file and not returned.
