With over a hundred awards to his name at the regional and national levels, Gerard Erley has had over four dozen solo exhibits throughout the United States and exhibited in over 300 juried shows. The artist’s work has hung in museums and galleries from New York to California, and can be found in museum, corporate and private collections both in the United States and abroad. Gerard has received eight grants from the South Carolina Arts Commission, and won Best of Show at the 2017 South Carolina State Fair Professional Exhibition, as well as first in painting this year.
Erley is known for his imaginary landscapes in oil paint on canvas or panel. He rarely refers to photos or sketches, preferring to paint in the studio from memory and intuition. The artist is influenced by such 19th-century American and European painters as Inness, Corot, and Turner. Like them, he seeks a sublime quality of light in his romantic landscapes.
