TERRY GILTNER water color
Giltner has gone from being a science teacher with a degree in biomedical science to a focus and love of watercolor painting. When Terry decided to stay home with her small children she began painting and selling her work. She also entered art shows and won awards at various levels throughout the years.
Terry later went back to teaching and taught art for 15 years. She found enjoyment in working with pen and ink and felt the drawing experience was a form of meditation.
The last few years Terry has traveled and experiencing life in Texas, Hawaii, Oregon and Thailand. She enjoys creating art from the influences of those travels and cannot imagine life without art. She now lives in Sunriver Oregon and is an agent with Gibson Realty in the Sunriver Business Center. Terry uses her eye for detail and design to help her clients with their real estate needs.
NANCY COTTON quilter and fiber artist Cotton is one of the original founders of Artists’ Gallery in Sunriver. She, along with her husband Greg Cotton I (woodworker) have been a vital part of not only producing fine art in the gallery, but the day to day nuts and bolts details of keeping a group of 30 artists keeping the teamwork humming along. A bit like herding kittens…as they say. Thank you Nancy.
Currently, Nancy has created a series of Asian inspired quilted wall hangings and table runners. The pieces range from a pieced Kimono wall hanging to inspired motifs containing fans and birds and Asian details.
Nancy is a multi-talented artist who creates many forms of fiber art. In the gallery you will find hand knit wonderful hats and cowl collars as well as a very cute quilted hat reminiscent of a style from the 1920s and brought into today’s styles. We love her table runners in a myriad of colors, motifs and shapes. She changes the images to fit the season as as well.
