The Upper Crust at 7 East Market St. in Georgetown is exhibiting works by award- winning artist, photographer and poet Gerilyn “Geri” Gaskill until Saturday, Sept. 7.
On Thursday, Aug. 15, light refreshments will be served at a Meet the Artist reception from 12:30 to 2 p.m. at The Upper Crust where individuals can discuss Gaskill’s art with her. She has a passion for capturing the beauty of Delaware’s coastline and Delmarva’s varied scenery in watercolor, oil and acrylics.
Since retiring in 2008 from her work as a nurse, Gaskill says art happily consumes her every waking moment. When not painting, she’s teaching and volunteering her time with others to paint, donating a great deal of time educating youths in the arts. For several years, she has organized and taught at an art camp for local youths and often instructs home-schooled children throughout the year at the Millsboro Art League. Gaskill is active in the local arts and is a member of a number of art leagues in Sussex County and northern Maryland. Her work can be previewed at www.eastcoastartistsonline.com and gerisartworld.blogspot.com and is also for sale at several area restaurants.
Gaskill will also be one of the many artists who will be at the Historic Georgetown Art Crawl Sunday, Sept. 22, in conjunction with the Farmer and Foodie Festival at The Circle in Georgetown
The Upper Crust serves made-from-scratch baked goods, fair trade organic coffee, breakfast and lunch in a casual setting. Part of The Upper Crust’s commitment to the community is to offer a gallery space to local artists who might not otherwise have an opportunity to show their works.
