Event Details

Solo Exhibition of George Weers’ watercolors in the Project Space at the Peoria Art Guild for the month of September.

“Like many artists George Weers enjoyed drawing as a child. During school he studied art and entertained the possibility of art school. Unfortunately things like the draft, the Air Force, two tours in South East Asia, marriage, children and jobs pushed his art work into a closet.
After 35 years with Caterpillar and 15 years with the Illinois Air National Guard, George retired, took inventory and realized that what he really wanted to do was return to art. He dug-out his watercolors and dedicated himself to relearning the vicissitudes of the elusive medium.
Dedication and daily practice have resulted in memberships in the Sangamon Watercolor Society, Illinois Watercolor Society and the Missouri Watercolor Society. His watercolors have been displayed in various regional shows and, in 2016, his work was included in an exhibition hung at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library.
George’s subjects include portraiture, figurative pieces, landscapes and seascapes.
The works placed in this exhibition reflect adventures in in foreign lands, Central Illinois subjects and, of course, portraits of friends, family and other interesting subjects. “
