Please join Evelyn Patricia Terry, at her home gallery, to celebrate her birthday through this special weekend exhibition and experience the eclectic ambiance of creativity, nutritious lifestyle choices, and comradery.
The celebration will take place on Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 18 & 19, 2014 from 1:00pm to 5:00 pm on both days, at Terry McCormick Contemporary Fine and Folk art Gallery, located at 2522 N. 18th St.
In joining with the 26th year of Milwaukee’s today quarterly premier art event, the Terry McCormick Contemporary Fine and Folk Art Gallery boasts attractions for both the experienced art connoisseur and the beginning collector.
Guest artist Della Wells will assist in this celebration by featuring her popular story dolls, paintings, drawings, collages, and assemblages.
Self-taught and internationally collected, Wells’ imagery predominantly depicts Black women and reflects her interest in folklore, history, and the impact of personal life situations.
Other featured art includes that of Blanche Brown (collages), Shana R. Goetsch (watercolors), George Ray McCormick Sr. (carvings and welded metal sculptures), Jacqueline A. Richards (black and white drawings and paintings), Anwar Floyd- Pruitt (found object assemblages), Mikal Floyd-Pruitt (paintings), and Ras `Ammar Nsoroma (paintings).
Although Ammar is recovering from a recent bicycling mishap, which left him hospitalized, he plans to be on site to create his vibrantly adept pastel portraits (The power of fresh green juices).
Also on exhibition is Terry’s extensive private collection amassed through purchases made locally, nationally, and abroad.
This diverse collection is a reflection of her interest in nurturing an eclectic art community.
In order to make room for new work, selections of her artwork and brooches ($10 – $100) will be available for 50% off the marked price.
A sample of other work available for purchase, include a Dorothea Taylor pastel “Fidilin W/the Notion;” a story doll by Della Wells; a William Christian collaged hand colored print, “Self Taught;” and an early 70s Terry oil painting, “Girl thinking,” influenced by Christian’s style – done after she watched him paint for several hours.
Finally, vegan appetizers top off the free and open to the public event.
