Cool Colors Gallery is owned and operated by artist and master furniture craftsman, Mehmet Sahin Altug. Cool Colors opened in 2015 as a gallery and studio space. The Carytown gallery features uniquely curated artwork and gifts from local makers and Turkish artisans. The artist/owner's eye for color and whimsy creates a unique gallery experience. You will find stunning paintings, artist prints and cards, furniture and delightful baubles.
Mehmet was born on the Mediterranean coast in Mersin, Turkey. At a young age his father taught him carpentry in his retail furniture shop in Mersin. Mehmet spent 25 years developing his whimsical furniture incorporating imagery and themes from his Turkish homeland. Now, Mehmet's creative repertoire includes painting and hosting his retail gallery. Visit the happy painting place at 3417 Cary Street.
