A painter, teacher, etcher, illustrator, and author, he was a multi-talented man who won numerous prizes for watercolor and etching and also illustrated and wrote children's books including "Plants of Sun and Sand." From the mid-1930s, he directed the Gerry Peirce Watercolor School in Tucson, Arizona.

He was born in Jamestown, New York, and graduated from the Cleveland, Ohio School of Art and then studied at the Art Students League in New York. He was known for highly atmospheric paintings of subtle tonality. He was a member of the Society of American Etchers, Chicago Society of Etchers, and California Print Makers. His work is in numerous museums including the Boston Museum of Art, Cleveland Museum and Library of Congress.

Biography from Mo's Gallery and Fine Framing:
This biography was found in ART LIFE magazine, submitted here by Mo's Gallery and Fine Framing.

Born in 1900, Gerry Pierce spent his last 30 years in Tucson, AZ, lured by the desert after wintering there earlier. The New York native studied at Cleveland's School of Fine Arts and New York's Art Student League. He did his first etchings in Nova Scotia, Canada, then spent a dozen years working in Arizona and New Mexico. In 1948, Mr. Peirce turned to watercolor, and opened the School of Watercolor Art in Tucson.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Boston Museum of Fine Art, the Library of Congress and the Univerity of Arizona Art Museum are among those that own Gerry Peirce's works. St. Andrews University College in London awarded him an honorary doctor of philosophy degree in art for the quality of his paintings and the inspirational value of his writing. Mr. Peirce died in 1969.
