About the Artist 

Gerald Moore grew up in Oakley. Kansas and graduated from Fort Hays State University in 1967 with a B.S. degree in Art with an emphasis in sculpture. He then earned an M.A. degree in sculpture in 1971. After completing his education, he spent many years devoted to public education as an art instructor and school administrator. Moore practices his craft with oils, ceramics, watercolors, sculpture, pastels, printmaking, and pen and ink. He has periodically been enrolled at GCCC for many years. His work represents of what he likes to call “A spontaneous creation relying on instinctive impulses and decisions, with a wide range of subject matters such as landscapes, seascapes, capacities, pure abstraction, the human element, and hunting dogs.” Most of the artworks he has created reflect his love for the prairie and the rich heritage of his families’ pioneer spirit.
