Anomalous Art Gallery Opening

“Stay Anomalous”
This is the moniker for the newest art gallery in Savannah, Anomalous Art Gallery.

The gallery, founded and curated by Thomas Jordan, had an opening in a historic home last month and featured art from some wonderful local artists!

I had the pleasure of documenting the interactions between the artists and audience as well as the honor of capturing the overall ambiance of what was described to me by one attendee as “the most fun gallery opening in Savannah!”

Check out the photos from the Anomalous Art Gallery opening below!
