Ongoing Jerry Ross painting exhibit

July 19, 2018 • 8:00 am - June 18, 2019 • 5:00 pm

A variety of portraits, landscapes, and figurative work, all oil paintings on canvas, all for sale.   Works span a time period from approximately the year 2000 to 2018.  There is a self-portrait of the artist, a large Garibaldi battle scene behind the receptionists desk,  landscapes of Italy and Oregon, and a large portrait of a “Tuscan Nonna” , a grandmother, which hangs in the corridor containing optometrists offices.  The latter is significant because of the review of the work written by Victoria Reis, a U of O intern:  http://jerryrosspittore.com/analysis2.htm.

Jerry Ross’s oil Portrait of Erina is a depiction of a woman that defies popular femininity yet defines who she is, as a woman, boldly. The label describes it as an oil painting of an Italian nonna from Tuscany, thereby setting up the viewer to witness her as not only female but as a matriarchal figure. “However, she is depicted outside of any motherly or grandmotherly setting, standing alone, with an expression that is the antithesis of the soft, submissive, and nurturing female stereotype. ”  Critical Review of painting: http://jerryrosspittore.com/analysis2.htm. Note: This painting was originally titled “Fiorella” (flower) which is the name of her daughter. The sitter’s actual name is Irene but I am still not certain of the exact spelling in Italian, so I have decided to just call it Nonna Tucana — Tuscan grandmother. She passed away recently at the age of 94. Her grandson, Stefano Goracci , is a collector of my artwork and I often participate in arts related events in Italy sponsored by his “Tavola Italiana” association.
