The exhibit arrives on the centennial year of women’s suffrage and focuses on portraits of strong women.

As featured by NashvilleLifestyles.com, Sculptor Alan LeQuire has spent the majority of his career honoring women through his portraits.

A walk through his Nashville gallery and studio reveals numerous works, both miniature and monumental in scale, in bronze, plaster, and terra cotta. His colossal Athena Parthenos, the largest indoor sculpture in the western word, recreates one of the most monumental goddess statues of all time and five of his public monuments commemorate women’s suffrage in the state that had the final vote to ratify the 19th Amendment.

Just in time for the centennial year of women’s suffrage, Elizabeth Cave, director at LeQuire Gallery has curated an exhibit that focuses on portraits of strong women throughout history. The exhibit will take place now through December 19, and will feature more than a dozen of LeQuire’s suffrage portraits including Ida B. Wells, Carrie Chapman Catt, J. Frankie Pierce, and Anne Dallas Dudley.
