We are very saddened to have lost one of our gallery family members, Terry Green on January 22, 2021.
Terry established himself as one of the more popular artists in the AODC gallery. Not only is his artwork collected and admired, he also had a following of students that have taken his workshops in the past years. Some have been repeat students as he changed the project each time he tought.
Terry created beautiful stained glass pieces, full of amazing color, that can hang in a window, decorate a garden, or function as a glowing lampshade. With his love of bright colors, beveled and dichroic glass, the completed pieces will enhance any space.
Terry retired to the Divide area a few years ago and had a glass studio where he created his art, did glass repairs, and commissioned pieces.
Terry's Family have promised to keep some of his remaining works in the gallery and proceeds with benefit the Terry Green Memorial Art Scholarship for high school seniors coninituing their arts education in college.
Terry Green's legacy will live on with those who have his treasured Stained Glass Windows. He was a big part of our Gallery and community and we will all miss him greatly. Terry died on January 22, 2021. The cause was a single car accident in Georgetown, CA. Terry was born on July 18, 1953 in Dayton, Ohio, the first of eight siblings.
For the last decade of Terry’s retirement he enjoyed teaching others how to do stained glass. As a hobby, he connected with Art on the Divide in Georgetown, CA and Auburn Old Town Art gallery where he sold some of his tremendous art stained glass pieces. He was also a member of the Georgetown Odd-fellows.
Terry was also the lead for the Scholarship Committee and assisted in awarding our annual Art Scholarships. His family has generously donated funds to DFAHS as a memorial to support these scholarships. The annual scholarship fund will hence be named: The Terry Green Memorial Scholarship presented by Art On the Divide Gallery and Divide Friends of the ARTS and Historical Society.
