Founded in 1998 by the erudite and cultivated attorney DeeAn Gillespie, the Marshall Gallery rapidly became a respected destination on Scottsdale’s Marshall Way, an area renowned for superior contemporary art. The Marshall Gallery achieved prominence for its leading contemporary oil painters and sculptors, mostly from Utah – a little known haven of fine artists.
DeeAn soon married Peter Strub who would help her achieve the gallery that would reflect the consciousness of art as art separates humanity from the rest of creation. They followed the philosophy that “Beautiful experiences leave lasting impressions and the intensity of art can haunt and wake one in the middle of the night. True beauty has power – human beings relate instantly to it whether graphic, formed, music or language arts – and requires no interpreter really.”
