About Teters Art
Teters Art is available to anyone, but we often work on commission with interior designers who want to offer their clients art that makes the most of their designs. Do you love a particular approach he’s taken to a painting but wish it were larger—or smaller? What about a different color? Duplication is impossible, but replicating an idea or an approach in formats and palettes that suit particular design needs is a challenge we meet again and again with great success.
Jerry Teters is a visual artist and drummer who has combined his love of these two art forms 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.”
Living in close proximity to the cliffs of the Shawangunk Ridge has also strongly influenced Jerry’s color palette, the importance of shape and line, and urged him to develop a fresh sense of how texture can bring depth and mood to the surface of a painting.
Jerry’s paintings, prints, and mixed medium 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.
Betty Marton is the person you’re most likely to speak with about Teters Art. When not working with interior design clients, she writes the stories people tell of their lives and work in In Your Own Words.
Betty and Jerry 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.
