Unleash your Imagination

Create, Play, Repeat


Current Exhibit

Fun and Games


By Terri Duncan

August 2 - Sept. 1


Terri Duncan is a mixed media artist that specializes in creating acrylic paintings that are suspended within multiple layers of resin. Her technique of layering and manipulation of paint, papers and resin produce vibrant images bursting with energy, visual depth and dimension. While developing the layers, she creates a shifting negative space for the hidden imagery below to be playfully discovered in what becomes an interactive experience for the viewer. Vivid color and texture are her driving forces, impacting everything she creates whether working in an abstract or impressionistic style.  

Experimenting with new materials and techniques is also an important part of Terri’s process. She believes it can be an illuminating experience because it pushes the artist into discovering new possibilities. From her collection of childhood games, toys, children’s books and found objects, she was inspired to create this whimsical exhibit titled, “Fun and Games”.   Duncan has been a professional artist for over 20 years.  She has exhibited in national juried shows, galleries and art fairs.  Her work is in both private and public collections.   

Each painting she creates becomes an exploration into storytelling and often has a way of revealing universal truths.  If she feels it, maybe someone else will to.
