Gary Akers is one of America’s foremost contemporary realists, recognized for his expertise in watercolor, drybrush, and egg tempera. His subjects include the inhabited rural and coastal landscape, as well as charming and intimate scenes of domestic life.
As Mr. Akers says, “My paintings are all about light. I look for the decisive instant when the drama inherent in quiet moments can be glimpsed.”
