LeQuire Gallery to host Ernest A. Pickup event Saturday (Jan. 16)

LeQuire Gallery (4304 Charlotte Avenue) will host authors Beverly St. John and Gary Webb for a book signing on Saturday, January 16, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wood engravings by artist Ernest A. Pickup will also be on display. Pickup's work "Parthenon" is pictured above.

St. John and Webb have written the book, "The Life and Work of Ernest A. Pickup." Pickup was one of Nashville’s first commercial artists. He produced thousands of illustrations and commercial designs throughout a career that spanned over fifty years. Today he is best remembered for the fine quality black and white prints he produced during the Depression years of the 1930’s. Inspired by Thomas Hart Benton and other exponents of the Regionalism movement, his prints reflect historic places of interest in Nashville and rural scenes of nature in and around his home in Brentwood, just south of Nashville.

For more information, call LeQuire Gallery at (615) 298-4611.
