Art displayed in alcove by Jerrie Glidden

My years of self-directed study enable me to experiment and discover new ways to capture beauty in a vivid and visually seductive form. My paintings pepper the globe in countries as diverse as Japan, Norway, Spain, Australia and many more cities throughout the world.  For a Rio Grande Valley girl from Weslaco and now living in Spring, Texas my career in the world of art has truly been a reaffirmation of Henry David Thoreau's belief that "the world is but a canvas to the Imagination". This exhibit is for the month of December.
