Note: This story first appeared on the School of Art’s website.
For over 30 years, Gallery 1010 has allowed students to showcase their work and gain professional experience. It is the only nonprofit student-run exhibition space in Tennessee.
“We are thrilled to be at our new location, a 10-minute walk east down Jackson Street. We are on the ground floor of the new Dewhirst Realty project, the Electric Co. Lofts. . . We are a block south of the first leg of the project, a revitalization of Magnolia between Winona and Jessamine.” said gallery director Austin Pratt.
With Gallery 1010, students learn the ins and outs of having a gallery opening. They learn to submit their work, write proposals and artist statements, and craft promotional materials.
