CatchLight Gallery is dedicated solely to the art of photography.
Nicole Robinson and George Rembert, both photographers, decided in the spring of 2012 to create a space where talented photographers from the High Country would have an opportunity to display and sell their work. When a beautiful space became available in the arts district of downtown West Jefferson, NC, they realized the dream and started CatchLight Gallery.
The following year brought exciting changes to the CatchLight. The Gallery transitioned into a cooperative type business model where the photographers would work a day in the gallery meeting and talking to our customers. So now you could stop by and meet them and talk about their work, style, and even their inspirations.
Today, the Gallery is as vibrant and exciting as ever. Nicole, while still one of our photographers on display, transferred the gallery ownership to Martin Seelig and Wendy Weatherwax. In March, we cleaned, repainted, and the photographers re-hung their walls. We’ve attracted 5 new artists and now have a wider variety of images. In May, the Gallery captured an underwriting award with WFDD an NPR station in Winston-Salem so our name is now being heard down in the Piedmont area of North Carolina. We also continue to hang our photographer’s images in several West Jefferson establishments including Boondocks Brewing and Bohemia.
