Fine Art and
Fine Craft

 City Gallery is an artisan’s co-operative with member and guest artists from southwestern Virginia and northwestern North Carolina. We’ve been connecting people with original and custom fine arts and fine crafts since 2005.

We’d love to show you everything in the Gallery, but our selection is vast and constantly changing. This site reflects a sample of our talented artists’ work so check back often.

Stop in to see us the next time you’re in Galax.  We’re at 207 South Main Street. Or give us a call at 276-236-8338.

Karin Carlson

Karin Carlson is a metal smith specializing in hand-made one-of-a-kind jewelry. Working primarily in copper, sterling silver and bronze, she builds each unique piece from simple sheet metal and wire, doing all of her own fabrication, from carefully formed ear wires to colorful patinas and multi-layered designs. Karin lives in the mountains of Bland county.

Ann Childress

I enjoy creating utilitarian pottery that functions as fine art for daily use. The beauty of the natural world influences many of the design elements in my work.

I studied pottery at Florida State University and the University of Tennessee. In my formal career, I worked for the National Park Service for more than 30 years, with work assignments on the Atlantic coast and along the Appalachian mountains.

Ann B. Crawford

A native of Ohio, this carpetbagger has made her home in Virginia for over 29 years. Ann is from a long line of artists, and came late to her passion of metal-smithing. She works with various metals, gemstones, and natural stone creating wall art, and unique, custom- designed jewelry.

Becky Webb Guynn

Becky Webb Guynn, of Woodlawn, VA, has a BFA from Longwood University in printmaking and graphic design. She has an avid interest in photography, and draws upon that experience and her appreciation of small town life when she approaches a new subject. 

Theresa Lazo

Chestnut Creek School of the Arts opened my eyes to many wonderful crafts. From paper cutting to wood carving to marbleizing paper, I explored many venues. But when I took a glass class I was hooked! Fusing glass brings together design, light and utility, all in one craft.

Paula R. Melton

Quiet and unassuming, Paula has been honing her skill in watercolor since childhood. Spending many hours with her grandparents, their love of nature and life in the Blue Ridge Mountains have informed her artwork. These honest influences have generated a style of painting that is realistic with a careful attention to the details that matter.

Kathye Mendes

Kathye Mendes, and her husband Don, left their native state of California in 1974 for a three month vacation. They never returned to California. After spending 10 years traveling the states, they eventually settled in Southwest Virginia.

Dorita Reyen

I worked in theater and film for 10 years, creating costume for both professional and amateur productions. I then attended Syracuse University along side my husband, David, completing our Masters degrees in fashion design in 2001.
