You will be uplifted by the upbeat feeling and colors that Jonas Gerard uses. I love the large paintings. Everything is for sale too. You can purchase smaller paintings as well. The best experience we had was when we saw Jonas do his performance painting. That's a MUST SEE if you like art and want to watch the fascinating process... More

Stopped by to visit a local artist in Action. Jonas always welcomes our family and readily demonstrates his current technique and discusses reflection on existing pieces. A visit to his workshop offers more than entertainment to the eye; its insight to both the visitors' soul melded with appreciation of craft.

Took my friend from Long Island here on a short RAD visit. Because of restricted time, we saw only one other studio on the block in addition to this one because of all the time we spent here. His work is very distinctive and while my taste in art is definitely more traditional than his style, I found I quite... More

It is always treat to visit this studio. The artwork is interesting, but most enjoyable is chatting with the artist himself, who is an enthusiastic free-spirited delightful soul. You can also view videos of his unconventional artistic creative style.

I have never been in an art gallery where we were welcomed into the artist's studio, and encouraged to touch any work of art. The creativity of Jonas Gerard is amazing!!!! His van in this picture is just an example!!

I visited several galleries/studios in the RAD and the Jonas Gerard Fine Art gallery/studio was, by far, the best. The sprawling gallery contains countless pieces, each one more awe-inspiring than the next. The short video showing Mr. Gerard creating his work is amazing. The staff is super friendly and most informative. I never felt any pressure to buy (the art... More

This is a must see! If you're on the trolley it's at stop 7. We spent an hour looking at all his beautiful work and ended up buying a small piece. His studio was fascinating and we can't say enough about how much we love his work.

Jonas was there himself and his warm personality and that of his staff makes it such a sharp contrast to other galleries we have visited which tend to be a bit stuffy, but not so in Asheville and definitely not so at this Gallery. They were wonderful, the artwork is a wide array of stunning visuals. Definitely worth the trip.

In general, the River Arts District (RAD) is worth the side trip, if you are visiting Asheville. The Jonas Gerard Fine Art Studio is one of the best stops in the RAD. The RAD is just a short drive from downtown Asheville, and parking on the street or a lot is always easy. Jonas Gerard had a unique, colorful style,... More
