These are The Adventures…
Gerardi Gems is the vision of Sharon and Paul Gerardi, a husband and wife team whose artistry is featured on this website. With their daughter Robyn, the family traveled North America from 2004 to 2007, visiting 36 American states and 6 Canadian provinces, all the while offering their artistry at art festivals, local craft markets, in new thought churches, and at garden festivals. This is the story of their journey, told in images.
Below are galleries of images, each one showing a different part of Sharon, Robyn, and Paul’s travels. We hope you enjoy the sights they saw, and maybe someday even have the chance to go to some of those places…
