Thank You Kathleen Stevens

A special thanks to Kathleen Stevens for her blog mention of my works she chose for inclusion at St. Margaret's Hospital Guild's Decorators' Show House.



A Walk With Penrod: Jerry Points Fine Art
By Kathleen Stevens

Dappled Afternoon

As our walk with Penrod draws near its end at St. Margaret's Hospital Guild's Decorators' Show House, we get a rare and wonderful glimpse of how an afternoon in Indiana may have looked to our beloved Penrod. The works I am sharing with you this evening were painted by Jerry Points, Fine Artist and gifted instructor. I remember the first time I saw one of Jerry's works, I realized that I had found an artist that loves trees just as much as I do. The way that Jerry paints trees and nature is an organic mixture of contemporary elegance.



Indiana Sycamores

Point's artwork possesses a contemporary edge that makes it a riveting focal in the minimalist setting, while his works are equally at home in the most traditional venue. This rare duplicity is due to his excellent use of color and light, and the captivating brushwork that is a Points trademark. His plein-air work has captured woodland and floral settings internationally, with award winning results.



Laundry Day

From large complicated compositions to the simplistic setting of "laundry Day", Jerry's work has the ability to take us to new places with his painting, drawing us in with rich palette and natural line. His reflective work is nothing short of amazing. A silent tribute to the natural world we sometimes take for granted, Jerry's work reminds us of the natural beauty that surrounds us everyday... something he teaches weekly at the Stutz in his painting classes and workshops.



Winter Sycamores

Jerry is a full time Artist working daily from his sunbathed studio and gallery at the Historic Stutz Building in downtown Indianapolis. I invite you to see more of Point's extensive body of award winning works by going to jerrypointspaintings.com and jerrypoints.com and Stutz Artists Association Annual Open House on April 23 & 24th.
