The Mason House, at the corner of Depot and Main Streets, was constructed in 1889 by David P. Mason, Sr. Between the Mason House and businesses along Depot street was an alley that provided access from Depot Street to the rear of the Grand Central Hotel (currently the General Morgan Inn). In the early 1980's, renovation began that incorporated the two hotels and the alley. Since the renovation, the "alley" has been adapted for use as an art gallery, becoming the Mason House Gallery. Monthly art exhibits are sponsored by the Greeneville Arts Council and the General Morgan Inn.

ABOUT THE November 2020 ARTISTs
Peasant and Raven was formed in 2006 when Becky M Thomas and husband Jeffrey Foster Thomas collaborated on custom one-of-a-kind wearable art jewelry. Since then, they have branched out to include oil painting, watercolor and watercolor illustration. Currently they are working together, along with friends and family, to design and build the soon to open Storybook Studio, which promises to be a place to create, explore artistic expression and learn, through classes and workshops. Both Becky and Jeff started their artistic journey early in life. Becky, originally from Pennsylvania, was always exploring drawing and artistic expression as a young person. Her creativity and love of working with horses forged an instant bond of friendship with Jeff when they met in the early 1980's. Jeff, a native West Virginian, was already selling art and working with horses by then and they often worked on their “projects” together. They married in 1988 and continued working with horses and exploring their artistic paths. Becky and Jeff both love to get in the studio and create together late into the night, sharing techniques and stories and plans for new pieces. Married for over 32 years now, their creative journey is still ever- changing and exciting! The new studio promises to be a new chapter in their lives as artists. They hope to share Storybook Studio with as many people as possible who just want to start or expand their own artistic journey! Commissions are always welcome. Peasant and Raven love to create pet portraiture in a variety of mediums. These pieces are found in homes from coast to coast and in parts of Europe.
