Price, Utah – May 6, 203 – The Prehistoric Museum presents Terry Willis-Chasing the Light. The thirty-five oil and acrylic paintings shown in Chasing the Light take the viewer on a multi-seasonal journey through “Castle Country”, exploring the interplay of light, shadow, and snow showing off this unique landscape at its best. After seeing this show, you will have a new appreciation for the variety of landscapes that make up “Castle Country”. You owe it to yourself to view your surroundings 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. Each creation makes you feel as though you are there.” said Lloyd Logan, director of education and exhibits.
Terry 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.
Prehistoric Museum is located at 155 East Main Street, Price, Utah and the hours of operation are Monday throughSaturday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
