Mini Vignette: Anomalous Art Gallery + The Savannah Heritage House

A partial photo of a wooden arched door and the stucco wall beside it.

Last week I posted some lovely vignettes from my friend Thomas’ home and mentioned that the reason I was back in Savannah was to photograph the opening of his gallery, Anomalous Art Gallery.

The gallery opening was actually a joint venture between Thomas and his good friend Douglas who renovated the historic home (dubbed the Savannah Heritage House), which is now available for rent for weddings, parties, and future art shows ;).

Although I was the event photographer the night of the opening, I returned the next day wearing a different photography hat. My goal was to get a feel for the space (and the art within it) in natural light sans people.

Below are some of the vignettes which illustrate the spirit of the space and its personality juxtaposed to the ambiance of the night before.

Mrs. Grant adorned the front room with her colorful and vibrant art of wildlife and nature scenes.

A painting of ballet dances hangs in between two bright windows in the background with a shabby chic table in the foreground.

This rug was placed on the floor in front of Nathan’s artwork and was a piece of art itself.

A wooden arched door separates the courtyard from the outside.

The pergola casts shadows on the courtyard wall in the background while fines hang overhead and vintage wire chairs sit in the foreground.

The shadows cast by the pergola on the wall of the courtyard make the space look like an exotic locale.

5 black lanterns that contain candles from the night before sit on the white bar top.

The rounded arched door still looks exotic from the other side.

For a bride and groom looking for an outdoor wedding venue with a gazebo-like feel, the Savannah Heritage House is definitely the place! The romantic courtyard is perfect for a Savannah elopement or a small, intimate wedding under the shade of the pergola and hanging vines with the bonus being the ample room inside of the house for a reception or cocktail hour.
