Jay Gerber: Shade
Jay Gerber will be bringing his latest collection of work, entitled Shade, to Mulberry Art Studios during the month of May. The public is invited to meet the artist at a First Friday Opening Reception on May 5th from 5pm until 9pm.
Jay Gerber has been painting since the late 70s/early 80s. Originally a self taught artist, he received some formal training at the Pennsylvania School of Arts, before returning to self discovery. He began with oils, but has since switched almost entirely to acrylic on canvas or board.
The title, Shade, came from one of the exhibit's central pieces- a calm, serene painting that features a field of mushrooms. The approximately 40 paintings included in the exhibit cover a variety of subject matter, all tied together with the fluid expression of formal abstract.
