Jerry Jordan is having his first solo art show in Madison, Wisconsin’s Common Wealth Gallery (100 South Baldwin Street, Third Floor) from August 1-7. The opening reception for the show will be on on Saturday, August 4 from 6-9pm.
Jerry is both a professional portrait artist as well as an undergraduate advisor specializing in recruitment and retention at the UW-Madison School of Education. He paints commissioned portraits, and he has also designed a mural for the MSC. His art has been featured on the cover of UMOJA magazine, including a portrait of President Obama in UMOJA’s February Issue celebrating Black History Month. Jerry is greatly influenced by John Singer Sargent (one of Sargent’s paintings hangs in his office as a source of inspiration!). His first solo show will feature his previous works as well as new pieces. Please come out and support him!
