    Teresa Getty Exhibition and Opening Reception at Arts Visalia  - In May 2019, Arts Visalia presents the blue jay and the spine; we had a teapot on the side, an exhibition featuring the artworks of Teresa Getty. Teresa, a regionally and internationally recognized artist, is a mixed media abstract painter from Seattle, Washington. Teresa pursued painting after thinking she would be a doctor or scientist. She received her BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago and MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She taught art part-time at the University Wisconsin-Madison, balancing her professional art career and being a mother to her medically complex daughter. Each of her paintings has a story that begins with an everyday experience, a current event, an experience shared with her daughter, or simply a looking and seeing moment. While she works, memories surface and the work walks itself back into the past. Without censorship, she allows them to flow into her mark, into her responses of lines and color. Each piece slowly mimics life, then has aggressive cuts and extraction, and lastly is buried underneath layers of material. Teresa Getty’s exhibition will be displayed May 1st through 31st, with an opening reception on First Friday, May 3rd, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The exhibition is sponsored in part by Jack & Charlie’s, the Vintage Press Restaurante, the Southern Pacific Depot Restaurant, Safco of America LLC, Sequoia-Visalia Kiwanis, and the Visalia Breakfast Lions. Teresa will also have an Artist Talk on Saturday, May 4th at 12pm at Arts Visalia, amongst the beautiful assortment of orchids in the gallery space. The Annual Orchid Sale, Arts Visalia’s biggest fundraiser, starts May 4th and runs through May 11th. Select from a wide variety of beautiful Phalaenopsis orchids until sold out. Gallery is open extended days from noon-5:30 p.m. We invite you to join in supporting Arts Visalia with your purchase of a $25.00 orchid. During this time, you can kill two birds with one stone, by viewing Teresa’s artwork on the walls.
