L Ross Gallery Reopening February 8 Under New Ownership

by - February 04, 2019



L Ross Gallery, a contemporary fine art gallery in East Memphis, will host a grand reopening celebration on Friday, February 8th, 6-9PM.

Established over a decade ago by Linda Ross, the gallery underwent an ownership change at the end of 2018 with Linda’s retirement. Laurie Brown, the new owner, recently relocated to Memphis from Falls Church, Virginia and has a background in both business and art. She has shown her kilnformed glass work in collaboration with Matthew Hasty’s painting at both the Memphis CAC’s Works of Heart fundraiser and at the gallery’s annual Elvis-theme show for the past several years.

Located in Sanderlin Place, the gallery has taken over all of Suite 103 (formerly shared by L Ross Gallery and Spruce) and has been renovating the space to make it more gallery-friendly for the past month. The gallery will continue to represent many of the same established regional artists, while also introducing a few new ones into the mix. February’s grand reopening show (running through March 2, 2019) will feature work by Matthew Hasty, Lisa Jennings, Chuck Johnson, Jeanne Seagle, Niles Wallace, Lisa Weiss, and Peter Wright. It will also introduce work by Laurel Lukaszewski (ceramics), Erwin Timmers (glass), and Nancy Weisser (glass).

“I was honored when Linda invited me to take over the gallery,” said Laurie Brown, the gallery’s new owner. “I look forward to continuing the gallery’s well-regarded legacy while also incorporating some of my own vision and touch. It has been wonderful how the Memphis art community has celebrated the continuation of L Ross Gallery.”
