Gerarde “Jay” Doucette
August 1 through 30
Reception : Saturday August 5th ; 1 to 3 pm
Please join us in the Crowell Gallery this August as we present works by Gerarde Doucette. Gerarde is a graduate of Vesper George School of Art, he studied life drawing at the Copley and attended the Museum School. His work history as an illustrator, visual merchandiser and interior designer is evident in his work. He is now a fulltime painter, instructor, custom framer and fine arts conservator.
Gerarde’s exhibit will consist of figurative, trompe l’oeil, and architectural works as well as works from the past. Recently, Gerarde’s focus has been on trompe l’oeil; i.e. “to fool the eye”, an art that has traditionally been an oil painter’s genre. His interest is to address this subject with watercolor, arguably a much more difficult medium with little to no forgiveness. The works from the past are insight to his artistic evolution.
Robert L. Crowell Art Gallery admission is free and open to the public.
Gallery Hours: Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday: 1 – 5 pm; RThursday: 2 – 7 pm ; Saturday: 10am – 1 pm
