Celebrating 15 years in Scottsdale, The Marshall Gallery of Fine Art boasts a diverse collection of exceptional art – contemporary, traditional and southwestern. Visitors come back year after year to purchase fine art in our stunning showroom, which more than 70 world-class artists call home. Some of the Gallery’s more notable artists include classical contemporary painters Merrill Mahaffey, Anthony Ackrill, William A. Suys Jr. OPA, and Ray Donley; abstract masters Steven DaLuz and Joseph Maruska; world-class sculptors Bryon Draper, and Roberto Cardinale; and emerging artists Kenneth Peloke, Michael Lotenero and Jordan Abernethy.
Not least among the Gallery’s claim to fame is its magnificent collection of art glass, including American masters and European exponents of the craft including Alexander Fekete and George Bucquet. The gallery features beautiful blown glass, gem-like cast glass, and intricately carved and worked glass. The gallery’s biennial glass invitational attracts top-tier artists who have exhibited in museums around the world.
The Marshall Gallery of Fine Art is a coming together of two Scottsdale galleries, both of which found success under their own name.
The Marshall Gallery
Founded in 1998 by attorney DeeAn Gillespie, the Marshall Gallery rapidly became a respected destination on Scottsdale’s Marshall Way, an area renowned for superior contemporary art. The Marshall Gallery achieved prominence for its leading contemporary oil painters and sculptors, mostly from Utah – a little-known haven of fine artists. DeeAn soon married Peter Strub who would help her achieve the gallery that would reflect the consciousness of art as art separates humanity from the rest of creation. They followed the philosophy that “Beautiful experiences leave lasting impressions and the intensity of art can haunt and wake one in the middle of the night. True beauty has power – human beings relate instantly to it whether graphic, formed, music or language arts – and requires no interpreter really.”
The LeKAE Gallery
David and Linda Sherer, who started their fine art gallery careers in New Mexico in 1977, specialized in traditional western art and Southwest impressionism for 24 years in Taos. Then in 1996, they opened their ‘winter’ gallery on Main Street, Scottsdale. The LeKAE Gallery added a new dynamic to contemporary art and American fine crafts on Main Street by representing numerous glass and metal artisans.
In 2009, the Marshall Gallery acquired and merged with the LeKAE Gallery to bring the sophisticated fine art of one in concert with the fine crafts of the other.
