About Ned LaBonne

Ned Labonne grew up in New York, the son of respected portrait painter Eleanor LaBonne. He graduated from NC State and spent 2 decades honing his craft in the boroughs of Greenwich Village. He now lives in Nashville, TN, a thriving artist community in the southeast, where he can finally devote his time to his arts. A discussion with Ned is available here.

About Thea LaBonne

Thea grew up in Nashville and received her arts degree from Peabody College before moving to the Big Apple. She is the abstract eye in the LaBonne couple, and appreciates the complexity of form and shadow in both 2D and 3D form. She is currently working on her digital arts skills at Nashville Tech while forming her voice as an artist.

What’s Hot in the Nashville Art Scene

Two new art galleries are opening open their doors in Nashville’s growing visual arts industry.

The Red Arrow Gallery comes to Nashville by way of Joshua Tree, CA, and will open in East Nashville’s Riverside Village, with a focus on contemporary arts. Also, in the flourishing Wedgewood-Houston arts district, the David Lusk Gallery is set to open next door to Zeitgeist. The 2,500-square-foot space will open in an industrial building rehabbed into sleek gallery space.

"Working with Ned and Thea has been an absolute pleasure. They work hard with their clients to provide a bust that can be proudly displayed in our home. From the initial photography to the final touches, you can see the care and attention to detail."

− Tom Holt

"Ned LaBonne's show at the Centennial Club was our best-attended event yet! Our patrons loved the caring eye and attention to detail in his pieces. He has quite the discerning eye for the human form."

− Sarah Cartwright, Centennial Club

"I love the maquette pieces! These small works of art sparkle with life, and provide delight in the simple aspects of life. They are a happy addition to my glass display case."

− John Adams
