Teri is excited to share the entire group of subscriber-supported work from her one-month journey to Namibia, Africa in 2015. The Namibian Portfolio project was born a year ago. It was offered to art lovers, collectors and travelers who took a risk and pre-purchased paintings to be completed in the months after Teri’s return. The supporters will have the opportunity to select their painting at the exhibit opening – each piece a different moment or encounter from her story of covering thousands of kilometers in Namibia and Botswana.
“Traveling to and through Namibia, and the subsequent months of work in my studio were an amazing amalgamation of life experience. The subject matter in Namibia was generous – a catalyst – and I have many more ideas to put into paint. A sense of purpose was created, which felt like another kind of generosity; the knowledge that I was making this body of work for my supporters – and beyond.”
What an unusual and exhilarating relationship it has been. From here I step off and keep going.
“Poems arrive ready to begin.
Poets are only the transportation.” (Humility by Mary Oliver)
Additional paintings and prints will be available at the exhibit.
