Jerald Melberg Gallery
While participating in many popular art fairs from coast to coast, including Art on Paper, Art New York, Seattle Art Fair and Art Miami, Charlotte based Jerald Melberg Gallery opened a pop-up space in Blowing Rock, NC from June-November. The Hickory Museum of Art
acquired a Lee Hall painting for their permanent collection. “Maine Edges” will be included in the museum’s upcoming exhibition “Woman Made: Women Artists from the Hickory Museum of Art Collection” December 17 - April 23, 2017. Lee Hall’s works, deriving from the tradition of abstractions produced by meditations on nature, were featured in a solo-show last fall at the gallery, Lee Hall: Celebration.

Rosenbaum Contemporary Postwar, Modern and Contemporary masters
Rosenbaum Contemporary exhibited Robert Indiana: The Power of Words which featured the artist’s new Bob Dylan Suite
as well as a selection of his powerful, word-based works such as HOPE, LOVE, ART, BODY/SOUL, HE and SHE.
An iconic figure of the Pop Art movement, Indiana’s inspiration from American commercial signs are evident in the exhibit. Newly minted Nobel Peace Prize Winner Bob Dylan, the quintessential American wanderer, is the perfect subject for Indiana’s laconic words.
