Betty Marton & Jerry Teters:
Jerry Teters has combined his love of visual art and music for more than three decades. He holds a Masters in Painting from the State University of New York at New Paltz and has studied in New York City at Pratt Institute, the Art Students League, and the National Academy of Design.
Of an exhibition at the Woodstock Art Association, the Woodstock Times wrote, “In Teters’ paintings, the horizon lines swing… ascending curves or diagonal lines invoke rhythms and poly-rhythms, while small squares or dots of color provide point and counterpoint in an equivalence of musical and non-objective visual form that has been around as long as abstraction has been in art and in earlier Bauhaus.”
Jerry’s paintings and mixed media works are owned by many private collectors and have been exhibited in group and one-person shows in New York City, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and throughout the Hudson Valley, including Carrie Haddad Gallery in Hudson and Mark Gruber Gallery in New Paltz. His work can currently be seen at Arlene Angard’s Gallery in New York, the Lorin Marsh Showroom at the New York DDB, and in ID810’s Englewood, NJ showroom.
Living in New Paltz, in close proximity to the cliffs of the Shawangunk Ridge, has also strongly influenced Jerry’ss color palette, the importance of shape and line, and urged him to explore how texture brings depth and character to the surface of a painting.
Betty Marton will tell you everything you need to know about commissioning or purchasing a Teters Art painting. When not working with interior design clients, she also writes the stories people tell of their lives and work in In Your Own Words.
Betty Marton & Jerry Teters met in New York as art students and now live in New Paltz. Their three children are all musicians; the two dogs don’t seem to be.
