TEW Galleries, founded in 1987 by Timothy Tew, is recognized as a leading contemporary art gallery in Atlanta, Georgia. Timothy was introduced to art in high school French class which led to wanting to live in Paris and, like art dealers before him, to discovering artists who reflected his taste and aesthetic values.
After graduating from college with a degree in piano, he studied Interior Decoration and Design at the Art Institute of Atlanta. This led to working in the home furnishings industry and then moving to Paris. There he pursued his dream of a career that combined art, design and spending time in France. During his sojourn Timothy refined his French, studied drawing and art history, and roamed the museums honing his eye. He also met several artists.
When Timothy returned to Atlanta in 1987, he began promoting the artists he met (often selling from the trunk of his car) and putting on exhibitions wherever he found opportunities. He opened his first exhibition space as Galerie Timothy Tew in 1989 at the TULA Art Center and began to add exceptional artists from the United States, England and Germany, many of whom are still represented by the gallery. In 2005, the gallery changed its name to TEW Galleries and moved to a uniquely beautiful three-story townhome in The Galleries of Peachtree Hills.
TEW Galleries has an established reputation for its exhibitions of national and international painters, artists and sculptors who work in a spectrum of styles that range from abstract to figurative. TEW Galleries staff are notable for their conversant guidance that enables collectors to make choices that best express their visual passions.

Corky Davis, Sales Director
Corky Davis was born in San Antonio, Texas and also lived in Hawaii. He received his BS in microbiology from the University of Texas and his BSN in nursing from the University of Texas Health Science Center of San Antonio. He moved to Atlanta in 1986 and began his career in nursing. A long-standing love of art, the establishment of his own art collection and a background in sales brought him to the gallery world and to TEW Galleries in 1998. He has been sales director since 2004. In addition to helping maintain the gallery's close relationship with clients, he provides valuable feedback for business decisions, assists with the selection of artworks and manages show installation.
Since 1987 TEW Galleries has sold thousands of artworks. As a result, insurance evaluations have become a daily request. To absorb the time this takes TEW Galleries no longer does these for free. The charge is $75 for the first item and $50 per item thereafter. Certified appraisers will be charged $25 per item.
We cannot provide any valuations for artists no longer represented by TEW Galleries.
Since TEW Galleries’ primary mission is to represent artists we can only accept resale consignments on a highly selective basis. Please note that we only consider artworks by artists currently represented by the gallery. Other criteria for acceptance include current tastes, market conditions, and our ability to house and store artworks.
If an artwork is accepted commission fees will be charged.
If you are interested in our limited program of resales you can email Jules@tewgalleries.com. Be sure to include a good image of both the front and back with another photo of the label on the back of the piece. Also include the dimensions, inventory number and any information about the original sale. A copy of the original invoice is extremely helpful.
As an alternative option we encourage sellers to contact Ahlers & Ogletree, an Atlanta auction house on Miami Circle. http://www.aandoauctions.com/ Auction houses are invaluable for establishing the secondary market.
