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.
