Terry Fenton
(1940)

Gifted artist and internationally known curator, author, and art critic, Terry Fenton has excelled during an art career spanning more than thirty years. He has held positions as Director of the Edmonton Art Gallery, Artistic Director of the Leighton Foundation near Calgary, and Director of the Mendel Art Gallery in Saskatoon. An artist's artist, Terry Fenton is an in-studio adviser to painters and sculptors across North America and Britain. As an artist, he describes himself as "an old-fashioned easel painter brought up among some fine abstract painters. My paintings are inspired by the mood in the landscape, by its atmosphere and ambiance rather than by its forms." Influenced by fellow Saskatchewan landscape painters Dorothy Knowles and Reta Cowley and inspired by abstract painters such as Kenneth Noland and Jules Olitski, his own landscape paintings are a satisfying blend of realism and abstraction. He doesn't confine himself to landscapes, however, and of his still life paintings he says, "They look more old fashioned still, but I hope that's superficial. I prefer one to three objects - books are a favourite subject - often under multiple sources of light."
