This September we are excited to be welcoming local artist, Peter Jerry, into the A.I. Friedman Gallery! Peter Jerry grew up in NYC and attended the High School of Music and Art as well as Pratt Institute. He earned his Masters of Art Education from NYU.
Peter is obsessed with the rapidly disappearing machinery of the early industrial age, particularly the age of steam. The subjects of his oil paintings draw inspiration form the 17th through 20th centuries. He enjoys exploring the coasts of the United States, painting harbors and the commercial shipping process. His paintings focus on industrial and maritime culture.
The photorealism and attention to detail really draw us into his work. You can see a love of the subject matter with every delicately painted rigging line.
The paintings will be up in the gallery for the entire month of September but we will have an Opening Reception on September 10th from 1-3pm! You can see this incredibly detailed work in person and you can meet the artist. Check out more of our upcoming events on the Event Calendar.
