The Hall Art Foundation is pleased to announce an exhibition by Vermont artist, Terry Ekasala, to be held at its galleries in Reading, Vermont from 15 May – 22 August 2020. Known for creating expressive, abstract paintings that border on representation, this exhibition will include about a dozen new large-scale paintings and works on paper. Often delineated with thinly painted lines, Ekasala populates her compositions with vibrant and at times translucent sections of color juxtaposed or layered across each other.
Terry Ekasala was born in Weymouth, MA in 1962. She received her undergraduate degree from the Art Institute in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Ekasala first lived in Miami Beach in the early to mid 1980s where she was a part of the Artifacts Artist Group which staged multimedia art happenings in unconventional settings throughout Miami. In 1987, she moved to Paris where she also became involved with the local artist community for the next fourteen years, before finally moving to Vermont in 2001. Her work has been exhibited widely in Paris, Berlin and New York. Most recently, solo presentations of her work have been held at Catamount Arts in St. Johnsbury, at Burlington City Arts, with Metalstone Gallery in New York City, at Matter & Light in Boston, and at the Piermarq Gallery in Sydney, Australia. In 2018, the Hall Art Foundation presented her work as part of a group show, Made in Vermont. Her work can be found in numerous private collections. Ekasala now resides in East Burke with her family, continuing to work on large and small abstracts in what she calls her dream studio on a mountainside in nearby West Burke.
