A staple of historic Savannah is the diverse and exquisite art throughout the city. Recently, Gallery 10 opened in the Art Center at Savannah City Market to encourage lesser-known artists within the local art community to show off their high-quality work. Thanks to our long-time artist, Alix Baptiste, these local artists who are beginning their art career now have space in our Art Center. By offering this space to new artists and well established artists, this art is affordable and accessible for all.
We’ve created a list of the amazing local artists you can find at Gallery 10. Check them out then stop by to say, “Hi!” when you visit Savannah City Market.
