After receiving her degree in Landscape architecture from the University of Georgia in 1980, Charlotte Terrell began work as a landscape architect for New York City Parks, involving the restoration of 19th century landscapes of Central Park and other historic landscapes. She apprenticed with master finisher, Ina Marks, of the Isabel O’Neil School of Antique and Art Restoration, to learn the craft of mid 19th century decorative painting. Terrell's century old decorative painting techniques have naturally translated into fine art. Her love and expertise in landscape design inform her subject matter. She was born and raised in Columbus, Mississippi and currently resides in Nashville, Tennessee.
Both shows will run from June 1st -30th, with the opening reception on Saturday, June 2nd in participation with the first Saturday openings in the New Orleans Arts District.
