Sophiella Gallery (pron. Sophie-Ella) is a fine art gallery in downtown Mobile, tucked between the popular Haberdasher and the Haunted Book Shop. Gallery owner and photographer Kim Kelly established the gallery in the Fall of 2018, with the objective of bringing the region's contemporary fine art and collectors together. "Sophiella Gallery hopes to make its contribution to the renaissance underway in downtown Mobile," she says, adding "Here is a new opportunity for our city to embrace the arts, and to adorn our homes and public spaces with meaningful pieces that reflect our identity and sense of place."
Representing established as well as emerging artists from the area, the gallery dedicates space to solo exhibitions throughout the year. “We are starting with regional artists whose work we have collected or admired over the years.” Kelly says. “We have appreciated the expression of beauty these artists communicate and look forward to sharing that expression in our renovated historic space."
