May 2018 Featured Artist:  Allison Gerrity

 Reception: May 4th | 6 PM - 8:30 PM

Allison Gerrity was inspired to try painting by a Sandra Bullock scene in the movie, Two If By Sea.  Allison purchased a ten dollar painting kit at a craft store, took it on a camping trip, and painted her first painting: a pond in plein air.  Allison has attended multiple classes and paints almost every day.  After several years of classes and practice, she painted the same pond in plein air. 

The improvement was remarkable. 

She paints with acrylics and watercolors.  She encourages others to try painting as a way to express themselves creatively, relieve stress, and remind themselves of how fun it is to create art; something almost everyone enjoyed doing as children, but then stopped doing it.

She says, “If you sing in the shower, you are a musician.  If you can fry a pork chop, you are a chef.  If you put paint on canvas, you are an artist.”
