Fine Art at Baxters Gallery in New Bern, NC, Features Works by Jerry La Point

Fine Art at Baxters Gallery in New Bern, NC, will present Mini Series – City Scenes, featuring works by Jerry La Point, on view from Apr. 4 through May 2, 2014. A reception will be held on Apr. 4, from 5-8pm, during the downtown art crawl.

“Capturing the fleeting essence of the motif is what I’m after in a painting, it’s what makes the subject so appealing to me, and I hope to the observer,” says La Point.

La Point brings out the raw feel of his subject on canvas with his thick brushstrokes and rich natural color used on his canvas. One’s eye goes in many different directions with the rich shadows surrounded by color creeping around his subject matter and is captured by the innocence of calm in his paintings. Most viewers and collectors of La Point’s work agree he has had his own unique style for many years and is impressionistic/realism combined.

La Point has a Bachelor of Fine Arts, (Painting and Illustrations) from Pratt Institute Brooklyn, NY, and has studied with Robert Tynes, Assistant Professor of Art, UNC Asheville.
