I’m enough of an artist to draw freely on my imagination, which I think is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.

-Albert Einstein

Elder Gallery of Contemporary Art consistently curates thought provoking exhibitions and events that encourage critical thinking and conversation and specializes in content-driven contemporary art that meets a level of undeniable excellence.  We represent established artists and emerging talents who challenge traditional materials and aesthetics, as well as those who embrace abstract, figurative and representational aesthetics.  From performance art to interactive art-making demonstrations, to documentary screenings and in-depth panel discussions and audience-engaged programs, the gallery has set itself apart as a space that welcomes diverse thought, celebrates differences, and creates community.


Named Best Art Gallery in Charlotte for the past five years by Charlotte Magazine, the gallery is focused on evolving along with our increasingly interconnected world.  Risk-taking and outside-the-box thinking are the cornerstones of the gallery’s future.  The gallery collaborates with forward thinking visionaries to continue its broad exhibition program, welcome a wide audience, and make art accessible to communities across the spectrum – from local to virtual.


The arts connect us to the past, confront us with our present, and summon us to face our future. Through their chosen mediums, our artists tell stories that broaden our perspective and foster understanding.  They help us make sense of our world and create work that suggests we are not alone in our human experience.
