"Landscapes," a solo show of oil paintings of scenes from the area, New England and the Far North by artist Jean Gerber, of Thetford, Vt., will be on display at the Tunbridge Public Library until June 17, 2019. There will be a reception on Sunday, June 2, from 2-4 p.m. It is free and open to the public.
Gerber grew up in Cleveland, which is where she learned to draw and to paddle a canoe. The two activities soon became linked as she discovered the beauty of Ohio's northern lakes and rivers. Working as a Wilderness Trip Leader introduced Gerber to a variety of landscapes which compelled her to record them in sketchbooks. Today she travels to rivers and lakes in New England, the Adirondacks and the Far North with a watercolor sketch kit next to her in the canoe. At home in her off-grid cabin in Thetford, Gerber uses the watercolor sketches as the basis for larger oil paintings.
