Gallery Spotlight: David Lusk Gallery

October 13, 2010

I don’t know much about the art scene in Memphis, but I do know that this is a great gallery, with some nationally (and possibly internationally) known artists.  The imagery ranges from the non-objective to the realistic; from the serene to the scribbly; from the sensitive to the conceptual; and from serious to whimsical.  Also, they only represent close to 40 artists – anything over 50 and you are getting into the money-making more than than the artistry.  At least that has been my experience.

Let me give you a little taste of what the gallery is like based on the above descriptions:


“Balls”, Pinkney Herbert, 53 x 42”


Jared Small, Untitled Mint, 48 x 34”


“Shrouded Sun II”, Bruce Brainard, 36 x 60

SCRIBBLY (or autonomous)

Wayne Edge


“The Back of Beyond”, Maysey Craddock


Terri Jones


Jeane Umbreit, photograph


Kat Gore, mixed media

Now, mind you, these are MY interpretations and labels (but I do have Master’s degree)!  Some of these images could fall under more than one “label”.  I’m just showing you a sample. 🙂  If you are ever in the Memphis area, check it out!

This gallery also carries one of my favorite contemporary artists, Anne Siems.  Look at the amazingness.

David Lusk Galery also represents the estate of  Carroll Cloar (among others).
