Gerry is one of the leading North of England based
artists and we’re proud to say that Gerry has been a member of New Art Gallery
for nearly two years, and indeed was one of our founding members.
Gerry’s work has been exhibited at leading London galleries and throughout the
UK and is featured in an ever-growing number of private collections.
He was appointed MBE in the New year’s Honours List 2009 for services to art
and charity. Gerry has also been recognised by his fellow artists, being a past
President of Manchester Academy of Fine Arts and winner of the Mena Joy
Schwabe Memorial Award for Outstanding Artist in 2014.
Gerry’s work has developed over the years, from studies of the West Pennine
Moors, to more abstract and unique interpretations of marine imagery and
landscape, through to observations of human figures in galleries and mass transit
environments. Lately, he has returned to his original sources but with a quite
different approach to the subject.
Today, Gerry is going to talk about his work, his journey as an artist and what
drives and inspires him to create his unique observations on places and people.
