USU Eastern Prehistoric Museum Press Release
The Prehistoric Museum presents Terry Willis-Chasing the Light II. The 21 oil paintings, shown in Chasing the Light II, take the viewer on a multi-seasonal journey through “Castle Country,” exploring the interplay of light, shadow and snow that show off this unique landscape at its best.
After seeing this show, you will have a new appreciation of the landscapes that make up “Castle Country.” You owe it to yourself to take a fresh look at your surrounding landscapes through the eyes of this accomplished artist.
This Iowa native relocated to Utah in 1980 and was inspired by the rugged canyons and peaceful solitude. Her paintings evoke a feeling of being alone and witnessing the landscape first-hand, the oil and acrylic images capturing a moment in time as the light and shadows play on the landscape. “This is one of the most beautiful exhibitions I have had the pleasure to place on display,” stated director of education and exhibits Lloyd Logan. “Each creation makes you feel as though you are there.”
Willis also creates glass etching, metal work and wood carving. We hope that you can find time to see this incredible depiction of the spectacular area that surrounds us here in Utah’s Castle Country. Examples of Terry’s work can be seen at willisworksstudio.com.
