Jerry Jordan

Jerry Jordan is part of a growing movement of painters who are reinterpreting classical painting into what they call “contemporary realism.” He counts such painters as Anders Zorn, William M. Chase, and Joaquin Sorolla as major influences in his artistic growth. However,  it was the artists of the Harlem Renaissance that fueled his desire to pursue painting. Born in Racine, Wisconsin, Jordan is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin–Whitewater with a bachelor’s degree in art as well as a master of science degree in curriculum and instruction with an emphasis in art education.
