Gallery 5 Artists And Events
Gallery 5 is a proud participant in "First Friday Arts", a collaborative effort between FLAG, AVA and galleries and studios in the Chattanooga area to promote attendance through special exhibits and other special events on the first Friday of each month.
Gallery 5, dedicated art gallery space at the Mountain Arts Community Center (MACC) on Signal Mountain, formally opened Saturday, June 14, 2014 with a public reception from 5 to 7 p.m. The gallery debuted by showcasing the best works from students of MACC painting and pottery classes led by Val Gibson (painting) and Lolly Durant (pottery). The student exhibition continued until July 12. Admission was free. The Gallery is open during MACC hours. (M-Th 9-8, Fri 9-4).
Looking forward, Gallery 5 plans to offer juried exhibitions of works by professional and semi-professional artists and to host a yearly exhibit of work done by local high school students.
