Lyons Fine Art Consulting was created by Ruth Ava Lyons who owned one of the southeast’s most important galleries for 22 years along with sculptor Paul Sires. Center of the Earth Gallery was voted Best Gallery by publications for over two decades, and was highly regarded by critics and collectors for its eclectic selection of museum quality contemporary art.
After closing the gallery in 2010, Lyons Fine Art Consulting continued the history of the award winning gallery by featuring original paintings and sculpture by emerging and established artists in the “Window On Noda”, a storefront viewing location located in the heart of the NODA arts district Lyons and Sires pioneered.
