NORWICH – How would you like to win a painting valued at $1,350 from nationally-renowned abstract expressionist painter Jonas Gerard for less than the cost of lunch?
Well, here’s your opportunity. A raffle is being held at this year’s Colorscape for “Lavendrous,” a 30x30 framed painting of explosive color and context that fans and critics have come to expect from the well respected and admired artist.
Wrote William Zimmer in The New York Times, “Jonas Gerard’s work is filtered through his Mediterranean sensibility. Who’s afraid of color? Certainly not Gerard, whose paintings evoke the sunset, the ocean and the meandering of tropical vines. The grace and cosmopolitan ease of Gerard’s art lies in his witty linking together of disparate elements.”
