Jeri Salter
JERI SALTER (b. 1955) Originally from Richmond, Virginia, Jeri Salter has lived all over Texas–Houston, McAllen, Plano, Lago Vista, and currently, Round Rock. A self-taught artist, Salter honed her skills over the years through various classes and workshops, focusing her talent on pastel landscapes. Her paintings often parallel images from early Texas artist Frank Reaugh as she derives her inspiration from the vast beauty in nature, highlighting the open skies and rolling plains of the Texas landscape. Most recently, she has found similar beauty in rural buildings and roadways. Salter describes her landscapes as having remnants of humanity, captured in the scenes that feature derelict buildings and worn dirt roads. In painting these ordinary scenes, she tries to convey an appreciation of the natural beauty and the emotional sense of “searching” evoked therein.
