Noted Bronze Sculptor Georgia Gerber is the leading Public Sculptor in America, known for her incredible portrayals of wildlife.
NW By NW Art Gallery is proud to represent a collector’s selection of the sculptor’s work.
“I like my sculpture to invite an interaction with its audience. This is often meant to be a direct physical interaction, but always I strive to engage the viewer’s imagination. I tend to present an incomplete visual narrative; a story is suggested, a feeling evoked, and the viewers find themselves providing details.”Georgia Gerber
Georgia Gerber, born 1955, grew up in Chester County, Pennsylvania, studied sculpture and bronze casting at Bucknell University, and moved west to attend Graduate School at the University of Washington. Her professional career began at that time. She lives on rural Whidbey Island, Washington. For 35 years she operated her own studio and foundry with her husband, Randy Hudson, and assistant, Virginia Keck. Her daughter, Painter Laura Gerber Hudson, lives with her husband and two children a short walk down the road.
A career emphasis has been the creation of accessible public artwork that encourages viewer interaction. Georgia has primarily worked with life size animal and human figures, often incorporating architectural or abstract elements into the design.
