As part of Margaret River Region Open Studios, we welcome Gerald Ashcroft. Gerald is also our artist in residence here at ArtGeo. Pay a visit during Open Studios this September! Gerald is a West Australian artist originally from the UK painting Abstracts and Landscapes in acrylics and oils. ​ His journey into painting Australian landscapes began in the late 80's when he brought his family here to start a new life. The rich colours dynamic shadows and brilliant light was such an incredible contrast to the rolling grey skies of England that he had grown up with. This new visual experience of dynamic colours and light in the landscape, immediately triggered his enthusiasm and urgency to start painting out in the open air, known as 'en plein air' Gerald was a lecturer for 6 years at the School of Art Design and Media with the West Australian Department of Training. He has been painting abstracts and landscapes for many years and ​has a wealth of experience running workshops for groups couples and individuals.
