Located on Fifth Avenue of the Arts, The Rymer Gallery is one of the largest contemporary galleries in the heart of Nashville’s arts district. The objective of the gallery is to continue the legacy endowed by The Betty Rymer Gallery at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, by supporting the best of what the contemporary art world has to offer.
In addition to the cutting-edge 3,000 square foot location, there is an annex gallery and artist studio located one block away, next to the Hermitage Hotel, Tennessee’s only 5-star hotel. The Hermitage Hotel has endorsed our gallery and has actively cooperated with us in reaching their prospective patrons.
The spectrum of artists we represent ranges from emerging to established in all media. The ways in which we promote, exhibit, and sell our artists is just as diverse. Locally, we host monthly exhibits of our exclusive group of artists for the downtown Nashville Art Crawl, the first Saturday of every month. Nationally, we propose our artists’ work to major museum collections through producing catalogues and submitting custom-curated shows that cater to museums’ needs. Internationally, we will be offering our artists’ work through participating in choice contemporary art fairs.
Our goal is to foster artwork that entices, engages, and lures artists, collectors, and enthusiasts to Nashville’s expanding art scene.
