Artistoric is a word that combines two of 2016 alumna Bailey Tichenor’s passions: art and history.
This is why Tichenor opened Artistoric, an online gallery for historically-significant works of art where each piece has a story. The gallery looks to bridge the gap between art galleries and museums by offering beautiful objects coupled with meaningful historical research. Its collection focuses on pre-1900 ceramics explored through comprehensive research essays, online exhibitions and thoughtful photography. Artistoric aims to bring a modern and seamless art-buying experience to those wishing to create meaningful spaces.
“Instead of catering to what art collections traditionally are, our research-based approach to art transforms art collections into what they could be,” Tichenor explained.
Tichenor serves as Artistoric’s co-founder and director, overseeing gallery acquisitions and sales, object care and the Artistoric Curations program. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree summa cum laude in art history with a minor in classics from Belmont. She credits the University in part for her success.
“Thank you to the Belmont University Art History program for fostering my love of art and giving me such a strong foundation in this wonderful field,” said Tichenor.
