Caron Gallery was in development for over 15 years, if only in her mind. During those years, Kimberly Rose Caron spent her time raising two wonderful teenagers, Emilie and Josh, and supporting the career of her talented husband, Richard.  She had been patiently waiting for just the right time to make her dream of opening an art gallery a reality. Kim and her husband supported the local art museum and regional art festivals, but wanted more access to the many talented artists in Mississippi. With such a rich and diverse art community, it was a surprise these artists were not displaying their work on a day-to-day basis.

Now beginning its fourth year, the gallery is thriving and represents a wide range of artists from various towns and cities in Mississippi.  The gallery stays busy installing art in client’s homes, presenting exhibitions of gallery artists, art workshops for the novice and established artists and special events in Downtown Tupelo.  Plus, last year the gallery added custom framing services and it is growing daily to meet the community’s needs.

Caron Gallery is located at 128 West Main Street in downtown Tupelo, MS, and is open Monday through Friday from 10-5, Thursday ’til 7 and Saturday 11-3.  Tupelo is located between Memphis, TN and Birmingham, AL along Highway 78, which crosses North Mississippi. Kim welcomes you to visit and view the amazing array of artwork in the gallery.  She is certain you will find pieces to add to your own collection.  Call her at (662) 205-0351 if you have any questions or need directions.
