DWC Town Life - Artist Daniel F. Gerhartz

Friday, June 03, 2011



Daniel F. Gerhartz was born in Wisconsin in 1965 where he now lives with his wife Jennifer 
 and their three young children. His interest in art piqued at an early age when a teenage
 friend suggested they spend one dreary afternoon drawing. It was at that moment that he 
discovered his lifework. Daniel began his art education at the American Academy of Art in 
Chicago where he studied in the classical tradition and immersed himself in applications
 of technique and design.

After a brief stint in commercial art, he began pursuing fine art; visiting museums to study
 master works and painting alongside contemporary artists. Daniel found his passion in painting
 from life. This direct approach to working with the figure and landscape allowed him to
see and attempt to capture the infinite nuances of light, color, and form.


This continues to drive his enthusiasm today. Since then he has been featured in solo and
 group shows across the country and has won several awards at prominent national 
invitational exhibitions and his work has been collected both nationally and 
internationally.
