Raleigh Now Spotlight: Inviting Art

Little Art Gallery celebrates 50 years

Walk into the unassuming Little Art Gallery in Cameron Village, and you’ll be immersed in a world of paint and pottery. The shop is chock-full of artwork and crafts, lining the walls and stacked throughout. Owner Rosanne Green Minick prefers it that way, she says. She remembers when her mom opened the gallery in North Hills when she was 11 years old. Today, Minick takes inspiration from her mother’s vision by curating directly with artists, the majority North Carolinian, and offering a variety of price points that celebrate art of every kind. “What makes us unique from the traditional gallery is the mixture of craft within the art.”

The gallery moved to Cameron Village 18 years ago, and Minick says she’s thrilled to be carrying on her mother’s legacy as one of the oldest galleries in the Raleigh area. “We have a 30-dollar bowl right next to a 5,000-dollar painting, and that’s the way my mom did it,” she says. You can celebrate the 50 year milestone with the gallery at its party April 14.
