American Hometown Series
Over the last few decades, many of America's traditional small towns have suffered the loss of both business and population, as economic trends have bypassed historical shopping areas and drawn shoppers to malls and "big box" retailers. In recent years, a nationwide effort has been launched to reverse this decline and revitalize the "mainstreets" in the downtown sections of thousands of small and medium-sized communities across the nation.
Doing what he calls "Visioneering", artist Jerry Anderson can use photographs of the current downtown to create images of what these towns can be in a picturesque, postcard-like style to "capture the vision" of what the town could be if the necessary resources are assembled. Jerry believes that this effort could help to gain public support for projects aimed at restoring what was once a quaint and vibrant aspect of our unique American culture, while also reviving a sense of community and promoting a society that values the personal relationships for which small towns are famous.
These images could be reproduced as prints to be used as a fundraiser for the town's revitalization project.

This print was inspired by a random moment when driving along a highway. Suddenly this old structure loomed out of the darkness and was caught in the headlights, and I was struck with the thought that, sometime in the distant past, this may have been the home of one or possibly many families. I wondered what events may have taken place within these once-intact walls....warmth and laughter, love and loss, peace and conflict, tragedy and triumph....scenes and secrets known only to what remains of these walls as they slowly return to the Earth.
