About Robert Gerdes

NEWS FLASH: Robert's exciting latest novel 'Winter Kept Us Warm' is now available from Wilde City Press in ebook format. The story follows the relationship of two young men from the time they meet in college in 1964 and continues for 15 years. The book covers the era of the Vietnam War and beyond. The boys must grapple with the war, draft, and their own sexuality.

Robert's previous novel, 'The Journey of Miss Arian O'Brien,' is available on Amazon and Kindle. To find out more and order, please go to and search 'books' under Robert Gerdes.The focus of the novel is on Margaret Arian O'Brien, a credulous woman. It is set in the first half of the last century. Arian, as she chooses to call herself, is the product of a well-to-do family in Washington, DC. She thinks everyone, sooner or later, goes to the White House to meet presidents as she does. Marriage, however, takes her away from her protective family and Washington society. In 1941 after the death of their father, Arian and her sister Grace book a cruise on the liner 'Kungsholm' to Cuba and the Caribbean. During the voyage she meets Alfred and, after a quick courtship, they marry. Alfred brings his bride to Los Angeles, California, where he shared a house with Ruby, his first wife. Arian learns the truth about Ruby's death from the mother of Alfred's best friend. Alfred's handling of her inheritance leads the trusting Arian to seek advice from acquaintances whom she has only recently befriended. They are aware of Arian's predicament, and offer to help her. Their motives are far darker than Alfred's.

Los Angeles native, Robert Gerdes, began his formal professional studies in art as a scholarship student at the Chouniard Art Institute in downtown Los Angeles. Later, he furthered his studies at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C.

Since 1978 Robert has resided in San Diego, California. During the 1980s and 1990s he had annual one-person shows at Gallery 21 in Spanish Village in Balboa Park; he was also a member of the Southwestern Artists association, also in Spanish Village, for a number of years.

Robert has been a member of the Coronado Art Association since 1987, and the San Diego County Art Mart Association since 2007.

Currently, with these two organizations, he shows regularly on the first and third Sunday of each month at Art In The Park in Spreckels Park, Coronado, and in Balboa Park, near the Houses of Pacific Relations, on almost every other Saturday and Sunday of the month.

The artist is known for his paintings of the San Diego region including Coronado, Balboa Park, La Jolla, Point Loma and the Anza-Borrego Desert.
He also does house portraits and other work on commission.
