New Jersey-born Gerry Hubert emerged as a Virgnia artist in 2010, after a portrait he had painted of Lady Gaga was shown on "The Oprah Winfrey Show” and Oprah.com. It was the first of many he would paint of her. Local and regional media outlets including NPR, Charlottesville Newsplex, and The Daily Progress recognized the first public showing of his Lady Gaga paintngs through interviews and news stories in association with the pop star’s Virginia appearance. His depictions of contemporary subjects painted in an old-world style have continued to attract the attention of Internet, radio, television, and print media, including recurring feature stories written by Mike Allen for the Roanoke Times. He has run two art galleries where he resides in Roanoke, Virginia, the first of which won him awards in City Lifestyles Magazine, alongside longtime local artists and galleries. Through his work he also has won national contests and gained praise and gratitude from entertainment industry personalities including Lady Gaga, Shirley Manson, James St. James, Lisa Vanderpump, Anderson Cooper, and Andy Cohen of "Watch What Happens Live," who has added Hubert's portrait of his dog Wacha to the set of his show “Watch What Happens Live” on Bravo Television.
