The Terry McCormick Gallery, located at 2522 North 18th Street, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 53206 is hosting a reception on Gallery Day, July 24, 2010 from 12 noon to 5 pm. One of several featured artists, Ras `Ammar Nsoroma, will create “incredibly lifelike” portraits on the spot for attendees at “incredibly reasonable rates.” Scheduled pre-registrations for portraits can be requested by calling 414.264.6766.
`Ammar has painted approximately one hundred murals throughout Milwaukee and the United States. Many of his subjects represent people who have contributed constructively to the advancement of the community that they live in.
His paintings, based on African cultural themes, are also being exhibited at the Terry McCormick Gallery.
Evelyn Patricia Terry, artist, writer, lecturer and curator, started the Terry McCormick Gallery in honor of her friendship with George Ray McCormick Sr. who made his transition July 30, 2009. Terry successfully organized and facilitated diverse venues for collectors to acquire several pieces of McCormick’s sculptures, carvings and drawings after his transition. Terry said, “George definitely wanted his work to go into as many museum collections as possible, but he really wanted his work in the House of Blues – so that is what I am working on.” Many of McCormick’s previously not exhibited yard sculptures will be shown.
The Terry McCormick Gallery features both fine and folk art. You may call or email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to schedule a time to visit if you cannot make the Gallery Day reception. Please visit www.evelynpatriciaterry.com/news for more information.
