About the Chateau Gallery:
Established in 2019 in the heart of Old Louisville’s Historic Preservation District, The Chateau Gallery is a contemporary art gallery with a narrative as captivating as the artwork housed within its walls. The original structure, built on the tailwind of the Southern Exhibition, is one of the first Gilded Age mansions erected on Third Street’s “Millionaire’s Row.”
For over a century, the nearly 6000 square-foot monolith served as a tobacco baron’s estate, a funeral parlor, an accredited barber college, a “cocaine dealer’s palace,” a law office, and a childcare center. Today, The Chateau Gallery is both antique and avant-garde, occupying a time and place between the old and the new. One would certainly be hard-pressed to find this happening anywhere else.
