WILLIAM TERNES: New England Impressionist
Curated by Marsha Malinowski of Malinowski & Associates, Fine Art Advisory
On view at the CONNECTICUT CANCER FOUNDATION’S ART GALLERY
26 November 2018 to 5 January 2019
A fine selection of over forty oils and watercolors by New England Impressionist, William Ternes will fill Connecticut Cancer Foundation’s Art Gallery for the holiday season. Ternes began his career as a watercolorist becoming a signature member of the New England Watercolor Society and the American Watercolor Society. His oil paintings of later years retained the sparkle of his watercolors, rendered in the layered depth that oils allow. His love of color and the natural world animated his work, mostly all painted plein air until the very last years of his life.
This sale exhibition is organized and curated by Marsha Malinowski of Malinowski & Associates, Fine Art Advisory. An opening Reception and Gallery Discussion, open to the public, will be held on 29 November from 6-8pm. This exhibition is the second to be presented in the new CCF Gallery. Malinowski has long admired the artistic output of Ternes. “The beauty and serenity embodied in each of his works is nothing short of inspiring. This will be the first time such a comprehensive group of his works will be exhibited in one space. It’s a privilege to introduce the work of William Ternes to the CCF gallery and to this area of Connecticut,” said Ms. Malinowski who has close ties to the artist’s family.
William Ternes (1933 – 2014) was educated at the University of Wisconsin and Columbia University where he received a B.S. degree in Art Education and an MBA respectively. He has studied at both the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and Massachusetts College of Art. Ternes’ paintings have been included in various exhibitions sponsored by the American Watercolor Society, Allied Artists, Audubon Artists, National Arts Club, and Salmagundi Club. He is a member of The Guild of Boston Artists, the Copley Society, and The New England Watercolor Society. In 2007, he was voted into the American Watercolor Society. His work is represented in a number of fine art galleries and has been collected internationally, including the Governor and Mrs. Peter Penfold of Tortola, British Virgin Islands where his paintings are on display at the Governor’s official residence. Corporate collections include Bank of America, John Hancock and Transco Corporation. Ternes also led trips and classes in Harbour Island and Lyford Cay, Bahamas, Spain, France and Ireland.
A portion of all sales will be donated to the Connecticut Cancer Foundation.
