Tucker's Gallery

‚ÄčTucker’s Gallery is a retail outdoor sculpture gallery on the streets of downtown Lenoir and is named for the town’s historical Tucker family, who settled in the area in 1797. Their barn was located near the Caldwell Arts Council and served as everything from a voting precinct and muster ground to a store and a place for “frolics” and celebrations.

‚ÄčThe outdoor sculpture gallery opened in 2006 and was the brainchild of local sculptors Keith Willis and Suzette Bradshaw. Managed by the Caldwell Arts Council in partnership with the City of Lenoir and the Lenoir Tourism Development Authority, twelve planters have been converted into pedestals for this retail sculpture gallery. Works are exhibited for up to one year and are available for sale through the Caldwell Arts Council.
