Owners Keith & Kim Stubblefield have lived in Collierville for many years and have loved the Historic Town Square. As the owner of a graphic design studio, Five17 Design, Keith, an artist, had envisioned a location on the Town Square for his design business with a fine art gallery in the front part of the building. 100 East Mulberry, the perfect location, was occupied by a photography studio for several years. In December when that business left the Square Keith and Kim saw the opportunity to realize their dream. In May of 2018 Gallery East Fine Art opened for business!
Saturday's on the square you can look forward to live demonstrations done by various artists that are represented at Gallery East. Come on by and take in the technique put on display by these highly talented individuals.
Please give us a call to set appointments, for more information about commissions or private gatherings.
