THIS ARTIST HAS WORKED ALL OVER THE COUNTRY AND FOLLOWING IS SOME INFORMATION WE HAVE FOUND ON THE WEB:
"Jerry Weers was born in 1953 in Fort Worth, Texas. The eldest son of an Air Force officer, Jerry lived his childhood in various parts of the United States as well as abroad, including three years in Japan.
Although as a child his interest in art was encouraged by his father who painted, Jerry's more formal art education began in college, where he studied drawing and painting while pursuing a degree in English. Upon graduating from Texas Lutheran College in 1974, he decided to forgo graduate school in favor of a full-time painting career.
Initially Jerry worked only in watercolor, but in 1980 after studying printmaking at the San Antonio Art Institute he began etching as well. Then in 1985 Jerry took up what is now his preferred medium of oil painting, which he studied with David Leffel and Gregg Kreutz at the Scottsdale Artist School.
Jerry's subject matter varies from classical still lifes to landscapes of the various areas he has traveled, including New England, Mexico, the southwestern United States, and Great Britain.
Jerry considers himself neither an impressionist nor a photo realist. His painterly style achieves its realism, not with photographic detail, but rather through a careful study of light."
JERRY WEERS IS A WELL-RESPECTED ARTIST AND GALLERIES CARRY HIS WORK WITH PRIDE.
