Founded in 1994, Tanner|Hill Gallery has served as an important venue for contemporary, mostly Southern, artists for over two decades. The gallery was originally housed in a remodeled 19th century factory building in Chattanooga, Tennessee and later expanded to include temporary project spaces in Chattanooga’s warehouse row and in Atlanta’s Westside Provisions District.
In support of its mission to support and promote the work of diverse artists, Tanner|Hill Gallery worked on a range of projects with distinguished institutions such as the High Museum of Art, the New Museum of Contemporary Art, Benwood Foundation, the Montgomery Museum of Fine Art, Hunter Museum of Art and Knoxville Museum among others. The gallery was also among the first participants in a number of now well-recognized national art fairs, such as Works on Paper, the Dallas Art Fair and Art Chicago. Tanner|Hill Gallery has also shown at The Intuit Show of Folk and Outsider Art and The Outsider Art Fair, featuring the work of important American artists such as T.A Hay, Nellie Mae Rowe and
In 2006 Tanner|Hill began showing the work of Willie Young, a Dallas native who has been making meticulously rendered graphite drawings since the early 70’s. His work has been shown through the gallery in group and solo exhibitions, and at art fairs internationally, most recently in partnership with Yukiko Koide Presents at Art Fair Tokyo in March 2017.
The gallery is operating privately out of NW Arkansas. For any further information about Tanner|Hill Gallery, please contact Angela Usrey at our contact page
