New to the River Arts District: Art gallery Tyger Tyger opens

A new gallery is coming to the River Arts District. 🐅

Tyger Tyger Gallery will open its doors at Riverview Station (191 Lyman St.) on Fri., Aug. 19 with an inaugural reception from 5-8 p.m. According to its founders, the gallery will be “expansive in nature” and feature artists who work across a range of media + points of view, with an emphasis on artists who have been historically underrepresented in the art world.

The opening exhibition, titled “What Strange Water, What Strange Air,” will feature luminous, otherworldly paintings + drawings by queer artists, including:

  • Christian Rieben
  • Caleb Yono
  • Mira Gerard

Tyger Tyger will be in good company — Riverview Station’s historic space is currently home to 60+ artists, galleries and craftspeople.
