In 1988, Archie and Garbo Hearne combined their passion for African American culture and history with their entrepreneurial spirit to open Pyramid Gallery. In January 1989, Pyramid Gallery relocated from a 600 square foot storefront to a much larger venue in the Madison Guaranty Bank Building on Little Rock’s Main Street. Over the next eight years, Pyramid Gallery and Books served as a community space: hosting book signings, art exhibitions and demonstrations, and other cultural and community enrichment programs. In 1997, nine years after establishing Pyramid Gallery and Books as the premiere place for art by Americans of African descent in Arkansas, Archie and Garbo had the unique opportunity to design a completely new space within the Museum Center in the River Market District. In 2010, Hearne Family Practice and Hearne Fine Art opened its doors at 1001 Wright Avenue in the historic Dunbar neighborhood.
