Meet Gerry Wood : Watercolor, Acrylics & Collage

Gerry WoodGerry WoodGerry Wood

Gerry Wood has had a lifelong interest in art and was associated with painting as a child since her mother was an artist. A native of Tulsa, Oklahoma, she attended Oklahoma State University where she received her Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. It was not until later in her married life, when the children were older, that she took up art. Gerry studied art in private classes, art workshops, and adult education/community college classes—among the instructors—Frank Webb, Gary Akers, Skip Lawrence, Joe Mayer, Martha Hudson, Don Stone, Tony Couch, Olivia Trejo, Linda Griffin, Pat Dews & Judi Betts.

Gerry was married to Eugene F. (Gene) Wood and together they were an artistic couple that exhibited their work in shows and bazaars in the region, the Unique Boutique Show, Annmarie Garden Artsfest, Calvert Artists’ Guild Shows, and were also featured artists on the cover of the St. Mary’s County Guide 1997-1998 (published by the Rotary Club). Together they taught classes with Adult Education, Parks & Recreation, Commission on Aging, Pax River NAS, Charles County Community College, and private classes. Gene & Gerry held gallery shows, exhibitions, and entered juried shows winning many ribbons and awards. They enjoyed traveling together to art workshops, taking photographs, painting, fishing, boating, square dancing, and hunting. Gerry suffered the devastating loss of her painting companion, traveling partner, and beloved husband upon his death in December 1998. The Wildewood Village Café, in Wildewood Retirement Village, was dedicated to Gene Wood and exhibits their artworks.

Gerry continues to be active in art and is a signature member of the prestigious Baltimore Watercolor Society (BWS), Calvert Artists’ Guild, Unique Boutique, Artworks at 7th Gallery in North Beach, and CalvArt Gallery in Prince Frederick. She primarily paints in watercolors but does enjoy acrylics & collage, and her favorite subjects are landscapes, florals, lighthouses, barns, “fantasy fish series”-- new themes “Marina Boat Scenes”, Flowers--Poppies, Tulips, Geraniums, Susans, & Daffodils.
