Art Display : Lora Gerdes


Quarterly Art Display

Presented by: CHARAC (Cable Hayward Area Arts Council)

Featured Artist: Lora Gerdes

July – September 2021

Lora was born and raised in a suburb south of Chicago,  where she learned oil painting as a young adult in a semi-private class with 7 to 10 students.  She later taught in the same setting for an extended period of time.  She has always tried to make time for painting while busy with life, but the past 10 years she has made painting her priority and strives to create art that is realistic with a natural feel.  Lora moved to the Northwoods several years ago and works mainly from photographs, which she takes in the area.  She enjoys the challenge of a portrait and prefers to work from candid photos which capture the subjects’ personalities.  She does do commissioned work: house portraits, animals as well as landscapes.

Lora Gerdes is a member of CHARAC where you can see her works posted on the website periodically at cablehaywardarts.org
