the building

Estel Gallery's building at 115 Rosa L Parks Blvd (formerly 8th Ave. N) was built in 1910. Over the years the building has housed a plethora of businesses at the street level including barbershops, phonograph stores, grocery markets, cafés, and store -- front ministries. In Nashville, the address is perhaps best known as the location of Jew's Hatters (1982 -1993). The second floor served as furnished rooms for let and then as a hotel until 1954. When the building was acquired by its current owners, it was slated for demolition. However, instead, a renovation occured. The complete renovation of the interior structure opened as Estel Gallery in October 2006.

Estel Gallery is located in downtown Nashville just north of Broadway on Rosa L. Parks Blvd. (formerly 8th Avenue N). We look forward to visiting with you and sharing our unique collection of art and artists.

An aside: I attended the opening of the Estal Gallery with my sister whom I was visiting in Nashville. I was about to set off for the East Coast to go to college at the Rhode Island School of Design. It was my last night in Nashville and my sister thought it appropriate that we should go to an art gallery opening. It was a sweet send off, that I appreciate even more so, years later. I now work in an architectural design firm in the interior design department. Here I am looking at a modern Italian dining furniture website getting ideas / references to pitch to a new client who wants to totally refurnish their entire NYC condo in an ultra modern look. The firm has just finished a gut renovation of the space and I was working with the client selecting the furnishings and lighting fixtures. I am planning on taking the train to Philadelphia to check out the actual showroom of this Italian dining furniture website. Their collections of the best known Italian furniture manufacturers and designers were perfect for this particular client. I am excited with my find. Yes, I have traveled a long distance from my chidhood home in Nashville. I won't be dropping by the Estel Gallery since it has been closed now for some time. But in the meantime many other galleries have opened in Nashville. My sister and I will deifnitely make plans to viit some of them the next time I am in town.

the location

If you are planning a day of viewing the arts, we are located one and a half blocks from the Frist Center for Visual Arts and around the corner from the Tennessee Art League and the International Gallery of Art. We are also within five blocks of the galleries on 5th Ave. N, including TAG Gallery and the Arts Company and Art in the Arcade locations. We would be happy to direct you to those and other galleries in the area. Nashville has much to offer those interested in the visual arts.
