Meet The Team

Jorge Arrieta, Owner/Director

Jorge  grew up surrounded by art. As artists, his parents made his childhood home their studio and inspired a future rooted in creativity. After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Belmont University, Arrieta pursued design, film making, and business management opportunities while growing a family of his own. Now, as the Owner and Director of Chauvet Arts, he is dedicated to helping distinguished artists generate a sustainable income and create purposeful art. Jorge, his wife Dominique, and two children call the Tennessee countryside home -- along with a beehive, chickens, and Gloria and Jake, their two dogs.

Langley Burton, Gallery Manager

Langley  grew up in Northwest Arkansas, but spent most of her summers in the UK exploring some of the greatest museums and galleries in the world. After getting her Bachelor’s degree in History (emphasis in Art History + Museum Studies) from John Brown University and spending time in London gaining professional experience in Fine Art Distribution, she got married and moved to Tennessee. Now, as the Gallery Manager of Chauvet Arts, Langley can’t wait to continue learning from and contributing to the rich culture of arts here in Nashville.

Jamie Reschke, Project Coordinator

Jamie was born and raised in Las Vegas, NV, and has been heavily influenced by art and design since she was young. While pursuing her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Painting and Sculpture at the University of Alabama, she spent a semester in Italy for a curatorial internship at the Florence University of the Arts. From visiting museums around the world to creating and exhibiting her own artwork, which includes Bronze sculptures, Jamie's experience has only increased her passion for the arts and further prepared her for her position as the Project Coordinator of Chauvet Arts.

Tess Varga,  Art Consultant

Originally from Louisville, KY, Tess has lived in various places across the country including Dallas, Southern California, and Boston. While earning her bachelor’s degree in Writing, Literature, and Publishing with minors in art history and narrative nonfiction, she spent two summers working at On Center Gallery in Provincetown, Cape Cod. She quickly fell in love with the work and decided she wanted to continue working as an advocate for artists. Tess finished her degree in London while researching and writing about London’s street art scene for Graffik Gallery. She has now settled in Nashville and is excited to continue connecting people through art.
