Jerry Gadamus is recognized internationally for the way he achieves unbelievable detail with his airbrush. It’s called “free-hand airbrushing” which is done without the aid of stencils or paintbrush. It contributes to a painting style that personifies his acclaimed reputation as an outdoor painter. His love of outdoor sports has taken him far and wide in the wilderness. Each year Jerry joins his friends on a painting and photography trip into the Western States where they study the abundant wildlife and paint art, prints and posters of the mountainous landscapes.
Jerry was an outdoor artist long before he attended the University of Wisconsin where he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. His art, prints and posters have appeared on the covers of countless magazines and books, including Wildlife Art News and U.S. Art.
He has won countless awards for his paintings, and his art, prints and posters are a familiar sight at many wildlife fund-raising auctions. Jerry has been juried into the prestigious “Birds of Art” exhibition at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin five times and twice was selected to go on the national and international tours. Two of his works are in the museum’s permanent collection.
