Speaker
Artist – Millcreek Community Partnership

Jerry Adam Puryear is passionate about God, Art and people. Ever since elementary school he has been interested in art and was in several gifted and talented programs in school as well as volunteer work with church organizations and school organizations. He studied at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C. at the age of 15, and later at Saint Joseph's University, where he received his Bachelors in Fine and Performing Arts. Most of his artwork is acrylic on canvas.  However, Jerry uses whatever medium he can find, from plexiglass, wood, or any up-cycled material, because he believes everything has value and can be transformed into something new, different and beautiful. Jerry manages the 6 programs that the company hosts year round. These programs are created for the youth in order to provide quality programs for those that can't afford as well as any one else. His love of the arts and experience working with the community has complemented his art style. Fusing different mediums and styles together to create great diversity of emotions and complex statements about the meaning, opportunity and value of life. He renders his ideas in such styles as pop-art, abstract, abstract impressionism and realism.
