I worked with Terry for a number of years at CLC. He was one of the best instructors I had the pleasure of working with. His loss to the art department and the college will resonate for a long time. Rest In Peace
Terry was always pleasant and kind. I remember going to his art show and being impressed by his subject and composition. I read an article about him in an art journal and he was noted as a committed artist. I remember writing for him a piece he requested on Interdisciplinary arts and he was always so relaxed and calm to work with. Terry will be missed at the college and we wish his family and friends peace during this time.
