Biography


 

 
Gerard Erley, an Illinois native currently living in South Carolina, has had over two dozen solo exhibits throughout the United States.  His award-winning artwork has been exhibited in over 200 juried shows, winning dozens of awards.  The artist’s work has hung in museums and galleries from New York to California, and can be found in museum, corporate and private collections both in the United States and abroad.
