LeQuire Gallery's Thanksgiving Weekend is always a haven amidst the chaos of Black Friday. While there are spectacular holiday "finds" at our event, one can also always count on less traffic, easier parking, spacious shopping, friendly atmosphere – an overall very pleasant experience. Many, many locals over the years have ended up here (of all of the choices in Nashville) with their out-of-town family and friends on Thanksgiving Weekend. We know it's because they can enjoy wonderful aesthetics (among our 5000 sq ft space), find unique holiday gifts, and explore Alan LeQuire's studio all in the same building. The renowned sculptor is always available on Thanksgiving Weekend to mingle with and meet guests, many of whom also take time to visit the Parthenon (5min away from LeQuire Gallery), where LeQuire's Athena Parthenos stands as the largest indoor sculpture in the western world.
A special incentive this year surrounding LeQuire is two fold: all of the sculptor's 2-dimensional work will be sharply priced at $150 for small works and $300 for large works, and LeQuire will be available to personally inscribe these works on paper Thanksgiving Weekend only.
