History & Philosophy

Jerald Melberg Gallery prides itself on enjoying a fine reputation based on years of honesty and integrity among our colleagues and collectors. We provide the professionalism, proper knowledge and expertise needed to place quality works of art in any public, private or corporate collection.

The gallery is proud to represent artists from all geographic regions, consequently, our artists reside all over the United States, as well as Argentina and Spain. Equally diverse as where the artists live are the types and styles of art they create. Among these are artists of such stature as Romare Bearden, the master American collagist of the twentieth century; Wolf Kahn, considered by many to be the premier living American landscape painter; and Robert Motherwell, one of the leaders of the American Abstract Expressionist movement.

The nationally and internationally acclaimed artists represented by Jerald Melberg Gallery are chosen with extreme care as we seek to exhibit works of art that have a particular visual poetry, a spiritual quality and an inner integrity that transcend the every day, regardless of being abstract, representational or realist.

An extensive inventory of works by all gallery artists may be viewed at any time, as the gallery has a private presentation room in addition to spacious public galleries. Collectors can enjoy seeing many works of art at one time as well as being offered no interest time payment plans and the ability to take works of art home on approval.

The professional staff at the gallery has over 100 years combined experience in the art field. Owner Jerald Melberg has been involved in the visual arts for over 40 years. Before opening his gallery in 1983, Melberg served as curator at the Mint Museum of Art in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Jerald Melberg Gallery is proud to have worked with numerous prestigious institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, OH and the Mint Museums in Charlotte, NC. Jerald Melberg Gallery has also advised the United States Department of State, Wachovia Corporation, Texaco, Transamerica, BASF and Mitsubishi, among others.
