Open since 1994, Tanner | Hill Gallery once exclusively featured contemporary southern outsider art, placing major pieces in private, corporate, and museum collections worldwide. In 2004, the gallery broadened its scope to incorporate emerging and mid-career contemporary sculptors and painters as well as the earlier core of self-taught artists. Through the summer of 2014, the gallery space was located in a 3,000 square foot remodeled 19th century saddle factory in Chattanooga, Tennessee, that served as the backdrop for approximately seven to nine exhibits, changing annually.
From 2007 - 2010, THG hosted a project space in Atlanta, Georgia, merging the worlds of contemporary art with contemporary poetry. Since, THG has transitioned into a private gallery focused on select artists at various national and international art fairs.
Over the years, THG 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, Georgia, as well as the Hunter Museum and Knoxville Museum, both based in Tennessee. In addition, the gallery continues to work privately with individual collectors and corporations.
The gallery goal is to build and represent a solid core of contemporary emerging and mid-career artists.
