May 2017 Member Presentation - Terry Muse
VAST's artist presentation at the May 2017 meeting will be by Terry Muse. The title of her talk is Mixed up with Media which will be a look back at all the variety of techniques and media she has used over the years, ending with discussion of her current choices of working with encaustic or acrylic/collage.
Teri Muse received a BFA in art education in 1978 from the University of North Texas and an MFA from Texas Woman's University. Following her degree, early works centered on paper-making. She made her own paper canvases in various shapes. Working with Beverly Gordon Fine Art/Dallas, Nimbus Gallery/Dallas and Miriam Perlman/Chicago her work was commissioned for large public spaces, including the Westin Hotel/Birmingham, the American Heart Association/Dallas, and Prudential Life Insurance/Chicago.
She has created a series of wood assemblages inspired by Picasso, & explored the encaustic technique of painting with melted wax, and she incorporates “asemic”, or wordless, writing throughout her work, adding an air of strength and mystery.
