Now closed, the Dickson Gallery of Fine Art had its beginnings in 2001 when Rachel Dickson walked the streets of downtown Jackson, Tennessee in pursuit of finding a potential location to open a cooperative art gallery.  Three years later, an opportunity presented itself and the Dickson Gallery was "born."

However, after three fabulous years, the Dickson Gallery was forced to close its doors in 2008.  The Dickson Gallery of Fine Art was a wonderful addition to Jackson, Tennessee's emerging downtown scene.  Its stories are told on the gallery blog.

Occupying a two story building at 118 East Lafayette Street, with its first floor "full" of West Tennessee art (after being open only 30 days), the Dickson Gallery of Fine Art was forced to finish renovations of the 2nd floor for expansion. Renovations were completed in March 2005. (Here's a look at the process.)

Thanks to the help of many of our member artists, the upstairs renovations were completed and we "test ran" use of the upstairs at our "Celebrate Art" Open House event held on December 16th, 2004. It proved that the 2nd floor would be a great addition to the gallery! After our ribbon cutting (March 11, 2005) and "Meet the Artists" party we realize that the upstairs has provided us with a "whole other gallery."

 

The Dickson Gallery represented over 30 artists and artisans ranging from handcrafted wood products, metal sculpture, pottery, oil paintings, watercolor paintings, acrylic paintings and most everything in between.

Doors closed in June of 2008.

OUR MISSION

The Dickson Gallery of Fine Art was a multicultural art gallery exhibiting emerging and professional contemporary artists and artisans. Public Art was a concept we embraced and its ability to be shared with a large audience and enrich the lives of those who can understand the vision behind the Dickson Gallery owner, Rachel Dicksonartist and artisan.

We wanted to enrich the broader Jackson, Tennessee community with the availability of works by regional artists and in turn, contribute to the marketability of the arts as an economic livelihood for creative people.

We strove to enhance the understanding of the role of fine arts in fulfilling the human need for aesthetically pleasing objects of good design in everyday life.

We supported and encouraged the development of the fine arts in our regions young people and others through gallery exhibits, art shows and related workshops.
