Local Galleries To Take Part In Artists Sunday

Wednesday, November 24, 2021
More than 500 communities across the country - including Chattanooga - are championing their local artists this holiday season, during Artists Sunday on the Sunday after Thanksgiving.
 
The Artists Sunday concept was launched nationwide in 2020 out of the creative epicenter of Austin Texas. It is dedicated to supporting local artists and recognizing the impact they have in enriching our lives, communities, and the economy. Keeli Crewe, co-owner of Area 61 Gallery, said, “I learned about Artists Sunday too late last year to coordinate our local galleries. But this year most of our local galleries and Art120 (a local arts nonprofit creating educational arts activities for under-served communities within a 120-mile radius of Chattanooga) were all excited to schedule events to coincide with Artists Sunday 2021.”
