Smallwood artist Jerry DeWitt draws creative inspiration from his farm past

'Carroll County Farm Heritage' exhibit opens March 18 at community college




When Jerry DeWitt paints a barn, there's a bit of the gentle clanging of cowbells mixing in with the watercolors.

That sound echoes back to his grandfather's Depression-era farm at the end of a lane in Bedford County, Pa.

He was just 2 years old when his father left home for good and the youngster was uprooted from Lansing, Mich., to live with his grandparents.

And in between trips to the pasture to the hand-dug well for another bucket of water, or out to the shed for an arm load of firewood, the sights and sounds and smells of farm life wrapped themselves around Jerry's memory, eventually finding their way to paint and paper more than 30 years later.

Many of those works will be displayed in the show, "Carroll County Farm Heritage: Paintings by Jerry DeWitt," opening Sunday, March 18, at Carroll Community College, 1601 Washington Road, Westminster, with a reception from 2 to 4 p. m… http://articles.baltimoresun.com/2012-03-17/explore/ph-ce-dewitt-and-wisdom-0318-20120317_1_oil-painting-smallwood-farm-life

… Information and photographs of Mr. DeWitt and his work, see Phil Grout’s article, “Smallwood artist Jerry DeWitt draws creative inspiration from his farm past,” in the Baltimore Sun on March 17, 2012, about Mr. DeWitt’s work and his well-received and highly successful show at Carroll Community College.
