Founded in 1974, the In-Town Gallery is one of the oldest cooperative galleries in the United States.

Owned and operated by a dynamic group of local artist members, the gallery exhibits a diverse range of styles, mediums and price points. Because each member is selected through a double jury process, the caliber of their original art is high, yet accessible and affordable. Several of our artists have received national recognition for their talent.

In-Town Gallery Welcomes Two New Members


Home Place by Linda Kerlin


New member Linda Kerlin, from Jasper, TN, says “My recent works are based on my environment, specifically the land, rivers and vegetation. My work is also inspired by my love antiques and landscaping. To me, painting is a way to convey ideas in a compelling way and I strive to provide a balance between abstraction and realism. My work expresses the memories of nature and the many places I have lived.”






Tourmaline by Sandra Paynter Washburn

Renowned painter and educator Sandra Paynter Washburn describes her artwork: “Most of my work is abstract, inspired by patterns found in nature and ancient cultures, with special attention paid to creating strong compositions. My medium of choice is acrylic, which I enjoy for its versatility and how well it combines with the mixed media techniques that I have developed. My intuitive working processes allow each painting to provide input into its development as the image develops.”


The In-Town Gallery features original artwork by more than thirty local artists.

At the In-Town Gallery, every day is an art show! The gallery is open seven days a week.

When you visit, two member artists will greet you and are available to answer questions about the work in the gallery or to help you make a selection.

And be sure not to miss our First Friday celebration.

On the first Friday of each month, the gallery’s Featured Artist program showcases the work of a different member artist or two. This special event is launched with an opening reception and extended hours.

On the first Friday of November and May – twice a year – the gallery buzzes with activity as member artists bring in all new works. These two events are particularly exciting because the entire gallery is full of new art to celebrate the holiday season and the coming of spring.

A great variety of media offers something for all tastes.

At The In-Town Gallery you’ll find:

Oil, acrylic, and watercolor paintings; mixed media; assemblage; photography; pen and ink drawings; wood arts and furnishings; metal sculpture; jewelry; stained and fused glass; pottery; fiber and fabric art; and greeting cards made from original work.
