Holler: Contemporary Appalachian Art Gallery
The Area’s Premiere Gallery for the Artist in You!
We are a non profit fine art gallery near the coal fields of central Appalachian. We showcase a variety of professional artists from across the region from Pennsylvania to GA. Holler Gallery is a renovated space, previously as the Virginia Bank of Commerce in 1917, repurposed as an art gallery to showcase local artists in a professional space. Holler Gallery, established 100 years after the Virginia Bank of Commerce, was created to promote emerging artists. In 2017, fellow artist Chase Bowman created Holler as a venue for fine Appalachian art. Since 2020, Director Richard Shrewsbury tries to maintain the established aesthetic while expanding our focus of education & community participation.
