Welcome to the reinvigorated new DamelioTerras.COM site. This has been a great site for art of various forms in the past and we intend to restore it to its former glory and more! We will be featuring new artists and I will be also trying to get some interst form the original owner of this site D’Amelia Terras.
I need to say here that this domain and site IS NOT AFFILIATED IN ANY WAY TO ITS FORMER OWNER. Here is a brief extract from the site Artnet.com by Rachel Corbet:
In 1996, Christopher D’Amelio and Lucien Terras left their jobs at Paula Cooper Gallery to open their own space — in a small storefront in desolate West Chelsea, and with just four artists. But over the next 15 years, the partnership matured into the respected D’Amelio Terras Gallery, which went on to represent Polly Apfelbaum, Nicole Cherubini and Robert Moskowitz, as well as Tony Feher, who was among those first four. Then, in December 2011, the dealers abruptly parted ways — or so it seemed to outsiders — and D’Amelio took over the West 22nd Street space while Terras went on to launch a private artist agency.
D’Amelio said the partnership dissolved amicably, following the economic crash of 2008. The two dealers found themselves reevaluating their business and the question arose, “Do we both want to do this? We came out with different desires about the gallery and for the art business. I thought that it’s still viable and that you need an exhibition space,” D’Amelio said. - Rachel Corbet
So I bought the domain (it wasn’t cheap!!!) in order to have a site with good pedigree and links and to display a variety of artists.
Our Featured Artist Of February 2014
Our first featured artist of 2014 is Hettie Rowley of Australia (formerly of South Africa). Hettie paints in oil, pastels and watercolor and also produces superb pencil work. I found her through a friend whop said to me that he knows a really brilliant artist who, like many talented people in an overcrowded world, just hasn’t had the exposure she deserves. So here are two paintings from Hettie. Pardon the quality – I will be upgrading them soon.
Invitation To Artists
I hereby invite talented but little known artists to apply for a display on this site. I will not be charging for this service as this site is intended to be a hobby, a service to artists everywhere.
That’s All for now.
I will be adding to the site very soon. In the meantime, if you find us and want to comment or request a display, please contact me through the form provided or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
All the Best
PS: If you happen to live in Australia and want to meet this artist or attend her classes, you can find her at this site
