Art department beginning year with ‘Paintings from Germany’ exhibit

A collection of paintings by Christopher T. Terry, professor in the Department of Art at Utah State University, are on public display in the Art Department’s Studio 102 Gallery at USU. The Studio 102 Gallery is located in the northeast corner of the Chase Fine Arts Center, and the show runs through Jan. 22. All are invited to a reception for the artist from 5-7 p.m. at the gallery Monday, Jan. 11. The exhibition, “Paintings from Germany,” presents work done by Terry during the 2008-2009 academic year. The paintings were created while Terry was on sabbatical leave in Germany. Most of his paintings are oil on canvas and deal with the same kind of mysterious and contemplative subject matter that has been the focus of Terry’s work for years. In addition to the oil canvas paintings, several spontaneous works on paper are also showcased. The exhibit and Terry’s work has been reviewed in “15 Bytes – Artists in Utah” (www.artistsofutah.org/15bytes/10jan/page4.html) by Shawn Rossiter. Terry will give a brief lecture about the show at noon, Wednesday, Jan. 13, in Studio 102. This discussion is free and open to the public. The exhibition is part of the year-long Crossing Boundaries project presented by the Art Department of the Caine School of the Arts. For more information about the exhibition or Crossing Boundaries, contact the Art Department at USU, 435-797-3460.
