Sevierville Commons Arts Council

Arts in Common Gallery

Now Open 10 to 4 weekdays & 

10 to 2 on Saturdays

This gallery & classroom space is located at 129 Bruce Street in downtown Sevierville, Tennessee.  The $50,000 grant we received from Tennessee Main Street will help us set up as a consignment gallery and classroom.  We hope the exterior of the building will be restored to the original brick facade during 2018. This will be a consignment gallery where local entrepreneur artists & craftsmen can apply to display and sell their work. The Consignment Artist Guidelines and a Consignment Artist Application is available via email and at the gallery.  We are currently taking reservations for renting our classroom space. Always feel free to contact us if you have any questions: Laurel Kiewitt, email: CommonsArtsCouncil@gmail.com or Andrea Wilson, email: andreas-studio@comcast.net.


Call or email us to receive a Consignment Application or come by the Gallery.
