Juror, Ehren Gerhard | Biography

 

 

Ehren Gerhard is an arts administrator and educator who calls Cape Coral, Florida home. Since 2014, he has been an Adjunct Professor of Art at Florida Gulf Coast University, Art Exhibitions Director for the Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs and Director of the Bonita Springs National Art Festivals. He earned his Master of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing from Arizona State University and his Bachelor of Arts from Florida Gulf Coast University. In 2013, he and his wife lived and worked in southern Spain as cultural ambassadors and language assistants for the Spanish Government.

 

Gerhard has been an arts educator for over ten years striving to increase appreciation for the arts, deepen our knowledge of their history, and place their meaning into context. In his own work as an artist, Gerhard derives inspiration from his surroundings and the natural world. “My imagery depicts an intense encounter with time and place. Working somewhere in-between scientific observation and romantic idealism, my goal is to create a living image that breathes and moves.” Gerhard lives in Southeast Cape Coral where he maintains an active studio, works on his garden and goes on primitive camping and fishing trips as often as possible.

 

In explanation to his varied selections for the exhibit, Juror Ehren Gerhard will outline the regional histories of art in Florida and imbue his deep appreciation for diverse approaches to the artistic process. Guests will be guided through a selection of artworks from the exhibit which both strengthen our foundations in the past and progress the future of art. Conclusions will be explored relating to media, style and subject matter by displaying these varied artworks side by side to create new conversations symbolic of contemporary society.

The challenge of selecting artworks was embraced by our juror Angelica Arbelaez as she curated a show from the over 300 entries to make the final selection of 67 pieces, ” Nancy K Turrell, executive director, tells The Rickie Report.

 

Miami-based curator Angelica Arbelaez will host a Juror’s Talk on Saturday, September 22 at 11:00 a.m. to discuss her most recent curatorial project Between a view and a milestone and revisit some of the research that informed the conceptual framework of the exhibition.
