Hart Gallery is a stunning art gallery and events venue in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Founded by Ellen and Jay Heavilon in 2010, this nonprofit serves homeless and non-traditional artists by providing them a space to create and share their work. Ellen was first inspired to start this project by a local public art piece featuring homeless artists. She developed a plan to supply art materials and classes to local shelters, and in 2010 purchased the Hart Gallery building to make a central space for the project to grow. Now, the gallery features a variety of homeless and budding artists whose work is changing the community in many positive ways. The gallery provides a beautiful, meaningful space for you to celebrate your big day, surrounded by the beauty and creativity of your own neighborhood. Choose Hart Gallery for a once in a lifetime wedding experience.

Perfect wedding shower
Had a fantastic shower! Eclectic venue in prime location- WITH free parking lot in Southside Chatt. Full kitchen and helpful staff. Mindy was so flexible and the cost was very affordable- not to mention all proceeds go to benefit local artists in need. Would highly recommend for any event!Sent on 01/04/2019
