Buchanan raised Dixon Gallery & Gardens profile

Wed, Jan 4, 2012
Vanderbilt. He began his career at the American Association of Museums in Washington in 1980. Before coming to the Dixon, he was director of the Lakeview Museum of Arts and Sciences in Peoria, Ill. Charles Wurtzburger, who also served on the Dixon board for 25 years, was a member of the search committee that selected Mr. Buchanan for the job. "We were so impressed," said Wurtzburger. "John made his name in Memphis and he made the Dixon's name." Mr. Buchanan often pushed the boundaries of the Dixon's charter, which is devoted to exhibiting the art of Impressionism and related eras and movements. He displayed, for example, the work of the contemporary glass artist Dale Chihuly. Kevin Sharp, director of the Dixon since 2007, said, "No one loved the Dixon more than John Buchanan. I cannot tell you how many favors and kindnesses he offered during my time here, and how many wonderful works of art are on view at the Dixon because of him." Mr. Buchanan is survived by his wife, Lucy Matthews Buchanan, of San Francisco; an uncle, Louis Buchanan, and an aunt, Edith Buchanan McCoy, both of Nashville. Visitation will be Wednesday at 1 p.m., at Christ Church Cathedral in Nashville, with the funeral service at 2 p.m., followed by burial at Spring Hill Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in memory of John Buchanan to The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, the Tennessee State Museum, or the Dixon Gallery and Gardens.
