Geral Butler's Profile

I have been passionate about painting for thirty-five years. Nonetheless, every year or so, my paintings take a different direction. Sometimes it’s subject matter, techniques or both. Last year, I added colored fibrous papers to my acrylic painted surfaces.

Consequently my compositions have more texture and incidental detailed patterns.

The Post Impressionist use of bold color and shape has been a constant influence throughout, but I am always open to new methods and materials.

I am a native of Lynchburg, Virginia, and have a bachelor of arts degree from Temple University. During a career as an art teacher, and even more since retiring, I have created, shown, and sold my work. But the real passion is the creative process.

I am active with the Lynchburg Art Club, and have volunteered for one of the most prominent local arts festivals, Kaleidoscope, for many years.
