Melissa Brown 

When: Sun., Oct. 23 2016



In August, we reported on a big move for Lee Hansley's pioneering Raleigh art gallery, which was planning to leave Glenwood South, where it had lived for seventeen years of its quarter-century existence. Driven out by parking problems in post-gentrification Glenwood, Hansley reopens this weekend in Dock 1053, a mixed-use warehouse at 1053 East Whitaker Mill Road. The high-ceilinged, large-windowed industrial space is a far cry from the gallery's former home in a distinctive Victorian cottage. The grand opening celebration is sobered by the fact that the first exhibit in the new space is a memorial. Planned to coincide with National Cancer Awareness Month, it features thirty paintings by the late Raleigh artist Melissa Brown, who had already attained a national following for her subtle negotiation of figuration and abstraction when she died of breast cancer, at age thirty, in 2001. —Brian Howe
