Last week an exhibition of his work opened at The Battleboro Museum & Art Center. Jerry’s Map, is a room-sized installation of hand-drawn panels comprising a highly-detailed map of an imaginary world. The map started as a doodle in 1963 and Jerry has been working on it ever since. What he adds to the map each day and what happens to the sections he has already created are determined in part by cards drawn at random from a customized deck. Gretzinger’s ongoing interest in the project, he claims, is in seeing how the map will evolve, since that is not totally within his control.
The exhibition runs until March 8, 2014 at The Battleboro Museum & Art Center In Battleboro, Vermont.
