tinyATH Gallery

Georgia Museum of Art

Started in 2019 by Camille Hayes, tiny ATH Gallery is a unique part of the Athens art scene. A graduate of the University of Georgia’s Lamar Dodd School of Art with a degree in studio art, Hayes organizes a different show every month by local artists in the itty-bitty space at 174 Cleveland Avenue, the former Cantrell Grocery, built in the early 1900s next to the railroad tracks. Tiny ATH is open every third Thursday as part of Athens’ Third Thursday evening for art, but it also has its own events, such as opening receptions, artists’ talks and tiny pop-up artists’ markets. Hayes features a wide variety of artists who work in different media, from Peter Loose’s cut-out painted birds to Penny Noah’s photographs, Lisa Freeman’s multimedia shadow boxes and Broderick Flanigan’s oil paintings.

Hayes promotes each exhibition on social media and on the gallery’s website, tinyathgallery.com, and provides a space in which artists can sell their work and local collectors can find out about and make connections with local artists. Her focus on a single artist or small group of artists each time allows each one to shine, and artists keep 60 percent of the proceeds from work sold. The gallery is funded by art sales. Artists who want to propose an exhibition of their work can find a submission form on the website.

Tiny ATH has limited hours, but you can always email tinyathgallery@gmail.com to inquire about works for sale.
