a love for art & passion for community



Highland Galerie is a purpose-driven gallery located in the heart of Columbus, Georgia. Led by two sisters, Elizabeth Cliatt and Landy Cartledge, the gallery is a destination where art can be sourced, community can be celebrated and where giving back remains central. Opened in 2018 by DeeDee Tebeau, Highland Galerie entered a new chapter of ownership in 2023 wherein its founding legacy is honored alongside a fresh trajectory of leadership, goals and initiatives. Elizabeth Cliatt and Landy Cartledge have embarked on a journey to infuse Highland Galerie with revitalized spirit and further carry the torch with unwavering faith and a commitment to enriching the Columbus community through the power of art. 

Established as a community gallery to honor the legacy of Mary Passalaigue, an influential figure in the Columbus art community,  the gallery’s primary mission – initially and today –  is to foster artistic appreciation and contribute to the cultural fabric of the ever-growing city. Honoring her late grandmother, Mary Passalaigue, DeeDee Tebeau envisioned Highland Galerie as a center to focus on local artists’ work while also being a haven for the community. Galerie as used in the name of the gallery, is defined as a “veranda or a porch,” thus imbuing the name with the institution’s original function, to be a welcoming place – as if a front porch – for the community to connect and to be inspired. As the newest chapter of the gallery is written under the auspices of Elizabeth and Landy, this original mission remains as a driving force while new layers are added and beginning to take hold. 

Highland Galerie welcomes members of the Columbus community and visitors from across the country to experience and a range of artistic works - from works on canvas and works on paper to carved wooden objects and ceramics. With a goal to further expand the gallery’s primary artist roster and increase onsite inventory, Highland Galerie is building upon its foundation as a destination for local, regional and national art enthusiasts to be inspired by the font of creativity amid the artistic community in Columbus, Georgia. 

a little more about us


Elizabeth Cliatt


Elizabeth is a Columbus native and steadfast champion of the city. Her path to Galerie leadership was born from both an entrepreneurial spirit and her love for people, their passions and how different perspectives can come together to create powerful pieces. Elizabeth received her BS in Business from Columbus State University and later her Masters in Family Business from Kennesaw State University. Her education, coupled with her experience in both corporate Marketing and Family Business practice, brings a unique perspective to Highland Galerie where she manages both internal operations and external communications. A curious soul, Elizabeth finds abundant inspiration in the beauty of daily life as well as in Highland Galerie’s burgeoning community. She believes that the community is truly at the heart of everything they do, so much so that she resides right down the street from the Galerie with her husband Wade and young daughter Clark.  



A natural and perceptive creative, Landy’s passion for the sensory and thought-provoking nature of art has been at the forefront of her life since before she can remember. First starting as a creative outlet, Landy’s love of art developed into an educational path, receiving her BA in Studio Art & Art History from University of Georgia. After spending time working in the gallery world of New York City and receiving her Curatorial Certificate from Sotheby’s Institute of Art, Landy returned South where she received her Masters in Nonprofit Management from Georgia State University. Similar to her sister, Landy also has a deep love for her home, Columbus, and worked as a curator for the Columbus Museum before embarking on this entrepreneurial venture that is Highland Galerie. She brings both her acute eye for talent as well as her industry expertise to managing works, organizing exhibitions and overseeing the day to day logistics of life at the Galerie. Landy and her husband Andrew reside in Columbus and look forward to welcoming their first child this spring! 

Both sisters believe their diverse backgrounds and unique perspectives are key to usher the Galerie into this next chapter. Stronger together than they are apart, Elizabeth and Landy work together to foster relationships and continuously curate a special selection to inspire the community.
