About the Artist:
Gary Weeter is both an architect and watercolor artist. He was born and raised in Iowa, and graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Architecture Degree. He established his own architectural practice in Dallas, Texas, and during that time developed his avocation for a watercolor painting.
Now retired, Gary and his wife Elaine live in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas where he has re-directed his time, energy and passion for creating works of art in this exciting and challenging medium. Having escaped the hustle & bustle of city life, they now enjoy traveling together around the world. On their travels, Gary is always on the lookout for an interesting street scene or dilapidated building to photograph for a future painting. “It is probably because of my architectural background that much of my work portrays the built environment rather than the natural.”
He is a “Signature Member” of both the Southwestern Watercolor Society and Mid-Southern Watercolorists, a prestigious recognition of his mastery of the medium of watercolor by having a minimum of five paintings accepted
into both society’s annual open juried exhibitions.
Gary has studied under such internationally known
watercolorists as John Pike and Edgar Whitney. His
recent studies include watercolor workshops with Joseph
Fettingis, Tom Francesconi and Ratinda Das.
His most recent recognition was for the above painting
“Seen Better days”, which won the Dennette and James
Woods award in the 2017 Mid-Southern Watercolorists
47th Annual Juried Exhibition.
