Garcia: The Artist

Day 4 in our Jerry-palooza celebration. Today, we celebrate Jerry The Artist. Jerry studied at the San Francisco Art Institute's Pre-College Art program, which greatly stimulated his creativity, and provided his first exposure to the alternative, bohemian world of the late 50s. He never took his art seriously, yet he managed to create some truly beautiful drawings and paintings over the years (many of which of course made their way on to a collection of ties).

I saw a collection of his work at a small gallery in Georgetown many years ago and truly enjoyed exploring his visual side. Here's some of his work that I have enjoyed most:

"Wetlands 1"


"Blue Iceberg"
