After literally stumbling across the Smallest Art Gallery a few weeks ago, we’ve been dying to write about it, waiting for the right moment to bring you the news about this wonderful (albeit tiny) piece of Nashville. It perfectly captures what we’re all about at Nashvillest – The quirky, oft-overlooked things that give our city its personality. We could wax poetic about the gallery for hours, but the creators have already said it best:Â
Located in the heart of Hillsboro VillageÂ NSAGÂ is the smallest functioning art gallery in Nashville, and dare we say, the world! The art is real. Really small, but real. The gallery is already attracting some of the top artists from around the US, as well as local Nashville artists.
In a former life, the gallery was a neglected, graffiti-covered display case. Soon with a little help from some Goo Gone, a razor blade, and a total interior makeover, the gallery started to take shape.
The gallery lights are powered by a solar panel mounted to the top, making it the only 100% self-sufficient art gallery in Nashville (and again, perhaps the world).
Clever, eh? The gallery’s third show will be opening tomorrow at 7pm -Â “A Small Gathering for a Little Conversation” by Mason & Kristen Frenzel.Â Join us at 1802Â½ 21st Ave South (between Posh Shoes & the shoe cobbler) to see it for yourself.Â
