“Shelter in Place—Reflections of 2020” will consist of the work Gerald Huth has been doing and will continue this year, about this challenge facing us as a society. The exhibit will include paintings, collages, and some sculptures. Images will be added to the website as they evolve.
Gerald Huth was born in New York City, studied art and architecture at the University of Pennsylvania, with further studies at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Avignon, France, and the Art Students’ League in New York. He has had more than 50 exhibitions, including numerous ones in France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and Australia. His work is in many public and private collections throughout the USA and abroad.
Gerald Huth’s art deals with “the human condition”, with events in his life and the world around him. Much of his work is also influenced by the arts of other cultures and civilizations, encountered during his extensive travels around the world. His work often has the human figure as its focus, but there are also many pieces where the line between figurative and abstract becomes blurred.
Mr. Huth works in a variety of media, often mixing different ones in an attempt to achieve the strongest response from the viewer. There are mixed-media collages, collage/sculptures on rotating bases, and large paintings combining oil on canvas, papers, and wood or other materials. He believes that “the role of the artist is to fulfill the human expression of the time in which we live.”
