Many Voices, One Heart: Paintings by Terrie Corbett
Presented by COCA at Artport Gallery

Here Comes The Sun by Terrie Corbett

"I love to paint! I love the way it feels, the way it moves, the way it caresses a surface," said Terrie Corbett. The Tallahassee artist uses traditional painting and drawing techniques combined with personal mark-making to create her artworks. The expressive paintings are non-objective or abstract and her inspiration comes from her experiences and feelings.
