Gerry Severson

 

Gerry is a native of Humboldt County on California’s north coast. A graduate of San Jose State University with a degree in Commercial Art he began his professional career as an advertising art director in San Francisco in the early 1960’s after military service as a naval officer.

 

In true Hollywood fashion he rose from the mail room in San Francisco to a spot on New York’s Madison Avenue, arriving just in time for the now so called “Mad Men” era. For the next 30 years, he was involved in creating advertising for such diverse clients as IBM, Goodyear, Air France, Bumble Bee and Coca Cola.  His art direction won many industry awards including acceptance of a Goodyear commercial by the Museum of Modern Art for inclusion in their advertising collection.

 

Now living back in the bay area, Gerry has the time to realize a long held dream of painting the endless motifs offered up by the coastal California landscape, an imprint acquired from growing up in the larger-than-life environment of primitive coastline and ancient forest known as Northern California.

 

In addition to his academic and professional credits he has studied landscape painting in workshops with, among others Randall Sexton, Tim Horn, and Jeanette Le Grue.

 

Gerry’s award-winning work has been exhibited in solo shows as well as numerous juried events around the Bay Area.
