Bert Gallery, Inc was founded in 1985 by Hugo Bert and Catherine Little Bert to showcase and preserve the rich art tradition of Rhode Island. Located in the Providence Biltmore Hotel in downtown for seven years, the gallery re-located in 1992 to its present location along the historic Old Harbor waterfront at 540 South Water Street.
With the move, Catherine Little Bert became sole proprietor. The gallery expanded its exhibition schedule to include regional contemporary artists along with launching a series of exhibitions of 19th century Rhode Island artists. Keeping to the mission of researching, showcasing and preserving paintings from the region, Catherine has organized over fifty exhibits dedicated to trends and styles embraced by New England artists.
These efforts continue with a dedicated exhibition space, the Studio Collection, which offers visitors an opportunity to view the historic inventory and the artists’ estates managed by the gallery.Bert Gallery Staff members Elizabeth, Rachel and Web designer Danny Chapman of ducStudio Web design
