In business for over 30 years, Jerald Melberg Gallery prides itself on enjoying a fine reputation based on years of honesty and integrity among our colleagues and collectors. Among the artists represented by the gallery, there are those 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 professional staff at the gallery has over 100 years combined experience in the art field while owner Jerald Melberg has been involved in the visual arts for over 40 years. Before opening his gallery over 30 years ago, Melberg served as curator at the Mint Museum of Art in Charlotte, North Carolina.
