Terry Plater's paintings can be described as contemporary art for the classic art lover. Grounding her work in the realist tradition, she values equally the craft and the history of painting. Her work is an intellectual and emotional record of her responses to people and places she encounters. Plater works primarily in oils and pastels ranging from 4" x 6" to 4' x 6.' Mostly self-trained, study at the Art Students League in NYC, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the Fine Arts Work Center (Provincetown) has been central to her artistic development. A member of Ithaca's State of the Art Gallery, Plater also teaches drawing and painting at all age and ability levels. Plater will be leading her fifth annual painting retreat to France,"for artists and art lovers," in May 2018.
