ABC correspondent Bill Weir's interview with internationally collected abstract artist Jonas Gerard is scheduled to air on "20/20" on January 11, 2008. This inspirational and interactive interview with Gerard will be featured as part of a special program on the topic of 'happiness'. The interview was filmed in New York and at Gerard's studio and gallery in Asheville, NC.

Bill Weir is investigating the idea of 'flow' which is an integral aspect of happiness. Gerard's spontaneous creativity, which often includes painting with a live audience, is inextricably linked with his zest for life. During his visit, Weir gained insight into Gerard's intuitive process, witnessing firsthand the transformational power of source energy which guides the artist's soul work.

Gerard's current work is reminiscent of the well known action painting school that emerged in NYC in the 50's and 60's. This improvisational, gestural way of applying paint has become his signature style.

The program is scheduled to air on January 11th but is subject to change by ABC. Please check with your local listings and http://www.jonasgerard.com in early January to confirm the date and time that the program will air.

"Happiness and freedom of expression is a huge part of the work I do. The whole concept is to allow the energy to direct you - letting the painting be what it is." -- Jonas Gerard
