Member Artist of the Month

Gerilyn Gaskill

October 1, 2021 - October 31, 2021

The Rehoboth Art League is pleased to announce watercolorist Gerilyn Gaskill, as our featured artist for the month of October, 2021.

“Born in Wilmington, Delaware, I began painting at a young age with instruction by my great-grandfather August Seiler, who painted coastal imagery.  By my high school years I was living in Rehoboth and received instruction from Howard Schroder; that was when I developed a passion for fine-art painting.

I work primarily with watercolor.  Often using the white paper as a color, loose washes, wet-into-wet, dry brush, all the techniques possible with the transparency of this unique medium.  For generations Delmarva’s coastal land and sea has retained its unique magic and special joy for locals and visitors, a place where children and adults come year after year – I like to capture that atmosphere, trying to go beyond the surface of a factual representation, in order to present the true and enhanced nature of the experience.

My work has won numerous ribbons, hangs in many private collections, and one was purchased by Paramount for a scene with Matt Damon.  I also work in a miniature scale, 3”x 4”, and have been repeatedly juried into the annual exhibitions of the leading Miniature Societies along the east coast.

When not painting I am teaching others to paint, to experience the same joy I have.  I believe everyone has the ability to paint whether they know it or not. I volunteer with local youth classes as well as instructing at many of the areas art leagues.”
