As founder and current director of Red Door Gallery in Richmond, Virginia, Jerry Shapiro has curated art from many artists throughout the United States. He has selected works and series from hundreds of artists to show in over 50 solo and group shows. Having been to major art museums and galleries around the world for the past 35 years, he has seen work from both an historic and contemporary perspective. Though not formally educated in the arts, he began collecting art right out of college.
With a preference to large scale works with a strong visual impact, Jerry finds an artist's use of color to add it's own dimension and power to a piece. Jerry reviews the works of hundreds of artists each week through shows, exhibitions and publications. He is very passionate about all forms of art and never tires of seeing new works by many artists.
