Janet Gervers’ abstract paintings are chosen to be in the upcoming Spectrum exhibit at BG Gallery in Santa Monica from June 15 – July 5, 2019. The annual Spectrum exhibit is the most popular and well attended show at the gallery, located at 3009 Ocean Park in Santa Monica’s new Gallery Row. The juried group show features talented artists from the Los Angeles area.
As an Artist, I couldn’t be more excited to showcase my paintings at one of my favorite galleries showcasing contemporary art in Santa Monica! It’s a dream come true and has been a long time in coming! While I’ve been in juried and invitational art shows in recent years in Hollywood, Venice and Culver City, this is a first in my adopted hometown of Santa Monica at a gallery I truly admire!
Several paintings of mine will be shown for the first time. The painting featured here, Blue Shimmer was recently exhibited at The Hollywood Sculpture Garden and Gallery.
For the past four years, I’ve been working steadily on my paintings, developing my current style that uses huge swaths of paint using a palette knife and a variety of brushes, creating texture filled canvases. I’m pursuing an art career finally!
I studied Graphic Design in college at the University of Cincinnati and love creating graphics and websites, something I’m known for by many people, however, now it’s time to add Artist and Art Career to my repertoire.
I plan on being at the opening and at select times throughout the run of the show. If you’d like to see my art when I’m present, please make an appointment via my Connect page.

I’m excited to share with you that I have a new Art Boutique Shop that has a selection of my abstract paintings printed on merchandise like tops, scarves, tote bags and even iPhone covers!
These are some great and unique gift items for others or yourself. For instance see this tote bag with my Energy Shift painting on it that I’m modeling. The tote bag has options for getting it with a lining or unlined, this version is lined with some zipper pockets and holds a lot of my stuff. It’s also available in an orange toned painting. Make sure to browse and let me know if you have any questions about it.
Prints are available too on a variety of interesting surfaces like metal and acrylic, canvas and more in different sizes.
This is a completely online shop – all you do is click the link below and start shopping!

The Sculpture Garden is seen from the street below (Winans), so you know you’re headed in the right direction when you see it (continue and go around the bend on the right).

It’s recommended to print out a closeup map as there are one way streets and it’s a bit tricky to find and gps may cut out .

Abstract Waves Painting Series from Janet Gervers
The Wave Series of abstract paintings have kept going and are still in production!
Blue Shimmer is featured at the top here, an acrylic on medium sized canvas, that brings my paintings closer to full fruition. I started with some seriously miniature paintings a few years ago, 3×5 in on the average and gradually brought my paintings up in size.
It’s always fun to work on the smaller ones and I fell like it’s a must to do something with my leftover paint, so that’s how Shimmer, happened (on left).
Iconic Painting on Wood
Working with some more iconic subjects, 2Hearts (on right) is another new medium sized painting on wood. My paintings are typically on canvas and some on smaller gesso boards and this one is the first larger scale painting on wood.
About My Painting Method
In case you’re interested in how it’s done, it’s a combination of larger brushes and a big palette knife, where paint can be loaded up on it. It’s very spontaneous and in the moment.
A Glimpse Into the Artist’s Studio aka Art Currently in Production
It’s rare that I will show art currently in production on my website, and this is an instance where you get a preview of my art before it’s done. This acrylic on canvas is 30 x 40 in so it’s the biggest painting yet in recent history. A finished piece will be posted when it’s complete.
Contact me if you’re interested in viewing these paintings or showing them in your space.
