Meet our Juror: Jerald L. Melberg
Jerald Melberg came to Charlotte in January 1977 to assume the position of Curator at the Mint Museum of Art. Over the next seven years, he was instrumental in taking the Museum from regional to national status by curating major exhibitions for artists Seymour Lipton, Larry Rivers, Robert DeNiro Sr. and Gaston LaChaise, among others. The major achievement of his tenure at the Museum was his organization of Romare Bearden 1970-1980. The exhibition honored one of Charlotte’s greatest native sons and traveled to four other museums, bringing the national spotlight to Charlotte. In 2010-2011, Jerald chaired the Romare Bearden Centennial Committee, organizing and coordinating activities surrounding the 100th anniversary of the artist’s birth.
In 1983 Jerald opened the Charlotte gallery that bears his name. In the intervening thirty-four years, Jerald Melberg Gallery has become recognized internationally. Jerald continues to bring high caliber exhibitions to Charlotte and has advised collectors and institutions worldwide, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the National Academy, the Mint Museum, and the Esteban Vicente Museum in Segovia, Spain. He is also called upon by Sotheby’s and Christie’s auction houses to advise and authenticate works of art.
Jerald considers his most lasting and rewarding contribution to Charlotte to be his 28-year commitment to build and support both an elementary and technical high school in Arequipa, [R-E-KEEPA] Peru, Charlotte’s oldest sister city. Through his efforts, he has raised over $200,000 toward school construction and education of children in an impoverished area of Arequipa. Jerald has, to date, made twenty-eight trips to Arequipa, often taking groups of Charlotteans with him. He has gained the enthusiastic support of friends and clients who share his vision to provide educational tools for a better life for thousands of children in Arequipa.
