John Terry Solo Exhibition

in the Maxwell Gallery coinciding with the fall exhibition

Reception Wednesday, October 2, 2019, from 6 to 8 pm

Displays from October 2 to December 18 at 4 pm

John Terry is a student of photography who, despite having taught visual art and photography at the high school level for over thirty years, believes there is always something new to learn and explore.

 John studied art at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY and, what is today, Rowan University in Glassboro, NJ., where he graduated with honors in art education. He has been a painter, printmaker, cartoonist and needlefelter, but photography has always been a favorite medium.

His photographs range from people, to wildlife, to scenics to, what John calls, “drive by shooting”. He hopes that his exhibit will foster a visual conversation between the viewer and the photos shot on six continents.

Wednesday, 6 pm to 8 pm

Thursday, 10 am to 7 pm

Friday, 10 am to 7 pm
