Greg Thompson Fine Art, established in 1995 as a private art consulting and art dealership, opened its public gallery space in June 2009. It is located at 429 Main Street in the historic Argenta area of North Little Rock that is quickly becoming the ‘arts district’ for Central Arkansas. The gallery is on the second floor of a renovated historic building built in 1895 known as the Faucette Building and has over 3,000 square feet of public and private viewing space. Thompson spent several years designing his new space to look, feel and operate with the integrity and quality of galleries in New York, Chicago and Paris. It boasts 18-foot ceilings, original hardwood floors, and clean white walls. “There is nothing like it in the state of Arkansas and it has become a destination gallery for the South.” Thompson says. The gallery’s focus is on important Southern Regional artists and important Modern Masters from the 19th and 20th Century.
Greg Thompson Fine Art has received awards for the Best Gallery in Arkansas from the readers of AY Magazine, Soiree magazine and the Arkansas Times and has also been featured prominently in the New York Times, Garden & Gun, ArtNews, Art In America and Arkansas Life.
"At this gallery you'll find a terrific collection of Southern regionalists work."
"In the 20 years since Thompson went into business as an art dealer, he's built a reputation as one of the premier gallery owners in the South."
“You could fill a text book on twentieth-century Southern art with the work on display at Greg Thompson Fine Art.”
