Terry Willis

The Rotating Artist Gallery at the Fairview Museum will be hosting the art of Terry Willis of Price, Utah. An opening reception will be held in Terry’s honor on Friday, September 9, 2022 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm. The reception will be held in the Fairview Museum at 65 North 100 East in Fairview.

Terry Willis is both a community leader and artist.

She was drawn to painting in 1974 when she joined the Navy and began to paint landscapes and seascapes of duty stations on both coasts and in Iceland. Most of this early work has been sold and is no longer available.

As a self-taught artist, her style has evolved and progressed. She began painting professionally in 2008 and switched from acrylics to oils in 2009.

Terry grew up in Iowa along the Mississippi River. She located to Utah in 1980 after her years in the Navy. Here she was moved by the rugged canyons, peace and solitude found in the wild canyons. She knew she had found her home.

Working as a professional river guide, she shares these places with her clients, seeing firsthand how a little desolation and solitude can change people’s lives.

Terry brings this passion to her paintings. She strives to capture a moment as light and shadow play across canyons, rivers, and ridges. In each creation she works to express the feeling of being alone and at peace in an incredible but real place. Viewing her paintings is like a little respite in the wilderness.

Terry’s studio is in Price, Utah. Living with her husband, together they enjoy exploring the wild country of the Colorado Plateau and beyond. Each painting has a story behind it that goes hand and hand with the adventures they share.

Terry’s art has been in four galleries. These include Lisa Chamberlain’s Gallery Helper, Contemporary Art And Design SLC, Wohler”s Art and Framing SLC, and Trackside Gallery Helper. She has had two solo shows at the J & Jeanne Wagner Jewish Center, three solo shows at the Prehistoric Museum and one at Gallery East USU Eastern Campus. She has been invited to many other shows as a participant. Terry has been at the Utah Arts Festive, Durango Arts Festival, Sedona Arts Festival as well as many others. She has been the Featured Artist at the Las Lagunas Art Gallery in California.

Terry has a Facebook page: Terry Willis-Willis Works Studio and Website: www.willisworksstudio.com.

Terry’s art exhibit will be both eye-catching and breathtaking. Plan to come out and see this striking display on Friday, Sept. 9.
