Gallery 1401 Moves To The Corner Of Market And Main

Tuesday, September 2, 2014

Located in downtown Chattanooga for 16 years, Gallery 1401 is making a shift to Main Street.

Sue Markley, owner of the gallery, said, “We love being a part of the direction that Main Street and the South Side is taking! When we found this building, We knew it would be a great opportunity to settle in and add to the excitement surrounding the growth and development of the South Side."

The gallery will open Thursday with a grand opening event at 6 p.m. All are welcome to attend.

The gallery’s artists offer an impressive range of original watercolors, oils, drawings, bronze works, encaustic, hand-blown glass and photography. Gallery 1401 offers residential and commercial art consultation, selection, delivery and hanging. 

"Our mission is to introduce our clients to selectively chosen established and emerging artists,” said Morgan Turpin, manager of the gallery. “We love the mix. We carefully select representational and abstract works in all styles and media.”

Gallery 1401 will feature openings, exhibits, and special events throughout the year. The gallery will also be open First Fridays starting in October until 8 p.m.

On Thursday, Sept. 25, Gallery 1401 will host British artist Arthur Laidlaw in a solo exhibition of works on paper.

Gallery 1401 will be open Tuesday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., , Saturday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and any day by appointment. For more information, call 423-265-0015 or visit the website at www.gallery1401.com.
