Welcome to 16 North Main

A fine art photography gallery located right in the heart of historic downtown Watkinsville and the production studio home to the national PBS show View Finders.

I knew it was time to locate a creative space and a gallery for my work, but I was very particular about the location. I wanted foot traffic. I wanted to be in the heart of Watkinsville. And I wanted windows that looked out onto the bustling Main Street that serves as a main artery for Athens, just to the north. Enter Sixteen North Main, a historic property built in the early 1900s. Large windows letting lots of natural light wash over the gallery. Convenient to other shops, restaurants, and the nearby OCAF art center. It is truly the heart of Watkinsville, and was a perfect place to open my first gallery.

Prints and production studio

The gallery features a wide range of my photographic work from my travels. Many images were taken in the Southeast, as well as some while I was filming View Finders. This space also serves as my studio where I produce View Finders along with a range of other video productions. Large TVs air footage of the show as well as samples of my other projects that I have produced. An iPad is mounted on the wall where you can browse my entire catalog, and then I can print it while you wait. if you want you can walk down the hall to Joe Coggins Art & Frame where you can choose from a variety of custom framing options, all without even leaving the building. 

Print Any Image While You Wait

Other artists

I wanted the space to also provide a chance for other local artists to showcase their talents. I carry a range of other art that is crafted by a range of individuals in the Watkinsville and Athens areas. Everything from coffee mugs to greetings cards to prints are available for a reasonable cost. There are some fantastic gift ideas located within the gallery, no matter what your budget is.
