Jerry Antolik has been painting the West for over 40 years. After earning a degree in illustration from Cooper School of Art, Cleveland, Ohio, and working for several commercial studios in the East during the 70’s, Jerry moved to Colorado and eventually Wyoming. Jerry’s work has been in the Top 100 in theArts for the Parks show (Region Three Winner 2005), Douglas Pioneer Museum Show, The Wyoming Governor’s Capitol Art Exhibition, Paint America Mini 100, and The Wind River Artists Guild National Show. Jerry is a signature member of Oil Painters of America. His many large interior and exterior murals can be seen in Alabama, Utah, Ohio, and across Wyoming. His most ambitious project was a one hundred foot mural in the Civilian Marksmanship Program’s Competition Center-North Air Gun Range at Camp Perry in Port Clinton, Ohio. While Jerry’s early work reflects his training as an illustrator, he has diligently worked at developing his skill in the field. “I spent the first 20 years of my career using acrylics, learning how to create detail. I have spent the last 20 years using oils, trying to losen up, finding the balance between being a painter or a technician.”
