Wenatchee painting continues to fill with life

Terry Johnson has a painting that is always in progress. 

He first painted the 11th Anniversary as he sat near the Apple Capital Loop Trail walking bridge at First and Columbia.

It was painted during the annual Plein Air Paint-Out in 2018 sponsored by Two Rivers Art Gallery. 

 At the time he turned the painting into the gallery for judging, it lacked a few details that have since appeared. 

A year later, birds and a lady on a bike showed up.  

This year the street became wet and a banner announcing the 11th Anniversary of Two Rivers Art Gallery was added.  

If Terry’s painting doesn’t sell soon, we may find it much different in a few months.

11th Anniversary by Terry Johnson can be seen at the Members Show as soon as the governor allows small businesses to open.

Terry is a potter as well. His pottery is often the unusual, sometimes conservative and at other times native American or even mystical.

 You may have seen Terry painting a large sign on the side of a cold storage building or painting as part of a plein air paint-out. 

Terry Johnson is truly a unique artist and perhaps could be called Wenatchee’s Picasso. 

His work can be seen at Two Rivers Art Gallery in Wenatchee.

Jan Theriault is president and chairman of the Board at Two Rivers Art Gallery.
