Gary Branam

Gary Lynn Branam was born in Waxahachie and was raised in Dallas, Texas in the Oak Cliff area. He earned his Bachelor’s degree in architecture at Texas Tech, and entered the Navy as an officer where he served in Da Nang during the Vietnam War. After the Navy he moved to Gulfport, La., spending a time at Gainesville, Florida where he studied art at the University there. Then moving to New Orleans, he attained his Masters degree in art at Tulane University where he also taught art classes. He lived in the French Quarter the rest of his life, painting and working as an architect for a large firm, where one of his most notable accomplishments was the design for LSU Medical center. He also had a passion for his restoration designs and projects of historical homes in and around the French Quarter. He was first and foremost a painter, but he was proficient in other mediums, such as sculpture, clay and acid-relief etching. He was a fine portrait artist, but did few portraits, only on commission for good friends. Gary Branam’s art was featured at the Vincent Mann Gallery in New Orleans. He painted up until his death in Dallas in 1995.
