“I am so pleased and excited to continue our role as a fixture on Greeneville’s Main Street, particularly in this building that symbolizes the effort to preserve and renew Greeneville's history,” says gallery director JamesBen Stockton. The connection to generations past is reflected in the new location of James-Ben: Studio and Gallery Art Center in Greeneville’s downtown historic district. Already enjoying its new home within the Crescent School #201, which is the old band room for the former elementary school, the young people of Greeneville were taught from 1925 to 1981. We were recruited to come from Franklin, TN to be a center for the arts community, to interface between our arts community and Greene County at large and to provide arts employment by merchandising the spectacular works created by the remarkable artists and artisans in Upper East Tennessee. One of the most appealing features of the space is the natural light coming from high windows on the north, west, and south sides. “There is a good reason artists prefer natural light for creating their work,” says Stockton."I'm frequently asked how a gallery with the range and quality of art featured in our small gallery arrived in this Historical Community. That answer is extremely simple and obvious: we LOVE interacting and being a part of our community! We were recruited to come from Franklin, TN to be a center for the arts community, to be a interface between our arts community and Greene County at large and to provide arts employment by merchandising the spectacular works created by the remarkable artists and artisans in upper East Tennessee.

The owner has died, and now this gallery is a very nice gift shop called Richland Creek Gifts. This is actually *much* better than James Ben was in its declining years, and well worth a visit!

The gallery is located in a free standing building in historic downtown Greeneville on the corner of Main and Church Streets. I have been going there since shortly after it opened and presently have several items from there in my home. The Gallery is an ever changing showcase of local art spanning the spectrum from oils and watercolors to very... More
