Hans W. Gerhard Art at Hughes River Farm

For many years, Hans Gerhard considered himself a recreational painter of landscapes, and occasional carver of wooden objects, sometimes recognizable as birds, mammals, or fish. Since moving to Hughes River Farm in Rappahannock County in 1987, and encouraged by kindred spirits among the Rappahannock arts and craft community, he has turned to working with scrap iron and steel to create sometimes bizarre, usually rusty, and occasionally whimsical sculptures.  His paintings, meanwhile, have left the realm of observed “reality” and turned emphatically abstract: creating their own reality, leaving the viewers to reach into their own imagination.
