"Being an artist for the last forty-five years has afforded me the freedom to explore many varied pathways toward my passion for experimentation and media. By nature, I am an inquisitive person and have always loved to "push the envelope" to see what’s on the other side of the artistic hill. Because of this, perhaps, my media and methodology take on a different character within a common framework.
I have had a love affair with rivers, waterways and their environs for many years. To me, it’s very visceral because of all the time I have spent in and within them — sometimes planned and sometimes accidental, but always memorable in some way. There is always a mysteriousness, even an eeriness when alone in these settings, but it is always rich with texture, light and darkness, filled with furtiveness."--Jerry Gates.
Gallery hours: Mon.–Thurs. 11am-6pm; Fri.-Sat. 10am-7pm; Sun. noon-4pm.
