Erin Terry, Artist

Printmaking, mixed media

Erin Padilla is the director of arts programming at the Chehalem Cultural Center. Erin began her current body of work while studying in the Medieval Italian hill-town of Orvieto during the spring of 2012.  

Surrounded by masterpieces of art from all ages and seeking to fully embrace the experience of my study abroad, I began thinking about relationships – between past and present, new friends and old, new world and old world - and began working on a series of abstract prints, paintings, and sculptures that explore the concept of the ‘embrace.’
