Founded in 1995, Les Yeux du Monde (The Eyes of the World) is a Contemporary Art gallery located in Charlottesville, Virginia. The gallery maintains the highest standards, representing both established and emerging artists from the Central Virginia region and beyond. The gallery's director, Lyn Warren received her Ph.D. in art history from UVa in 1994. Inspired by the beautiful views of the mountains, Warren picked the name because it suggests a gallery that seeks to open people's eyes to the myriad aesthetic delights that art offers in both exterior and interior worlds. After many years at a downtown Charlottesville location, the gallery has recently returned to its original setting. This time it occupies a stunning contemporary structure designed by architect, W.G. Clark that evokes a soaring sculpture by Richard Serra.
Open 1:00 -5:00 pm Thursday-Sunday, or by appointment.
