The Normandy Gallery is approachable, playful, and affordable. Nestled in at the threshold of museum row, on Main, between 6th and 7th street you will find this charming little gallery. The bright green and grey entrance is street level just inside the Renaissance Business Center. Carefully organized art lines the exposed brick walls and features work from local photographers, paper craft, traditional art, geekdom, fandom and a variety of amazing things you never knew you couldn't live with out. The Normandy Gallery steps in along side Awesome Possum Gallery to fill the void after losing Downtown Louisville's landmark army good store at 639 W. Main. Gallery owner Sharon Marcum brings a vivacious taste to the dynamic space of the Normandy Gallery as an artist and as a local fandom celebrity.
The Renaissance Business Centers Building (which was once The Normandy Inn) is pre-civil war, but like many buildings in the area, the actual construction date is not on record. The biggest claim to fame for the location includes a few scenes that feature Bill Murray's apartment in the movie Stripes and where restaurateur Bim Deitrich started his famous career.
Thanks to the support of building owner, Deborah S. Cook, the Main Street lobby area was allowed to be cultivated into an Art Gallery by the skilled hands of Sharon Marcum, and opened in late 2012, A space where Marcum held her first major gallery opening on May 2012.
