Art Village Gallery
Art Village Gallery started as a small art studio space in a back room at 333 Beale St in Memphis Tenn. Right after graduating from Art school, I was in a desperate need for a studio space to work, a space that I shared with two other resident artists who later move out leaving me with a large enough space to display my works. Thus was born Art Village gallery. The year was 1990.
The need for a Village Style gallery was to fulfill one of my childhood dreams, which is to create a community of artist working and playing together just like it was in my village growing up as a young boy in Nigeria. Today the gallery represents artist from Columbia, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Thailand, Zimbabwe and Namibia to mention a few.
Our mission is simply to connect the Mid -South with exotic works of art from talented but unknown artist living in developing countries.
