Terry Perkins’ art evolved and changed over the years, but the consistent theme that is evident throughout this exhibition is his love for the landscape, heritage and life as he knew it in Carleton County, New Brunswick. He lived and worked in Florenceville-Bristol and is well know in the community as the artist who painted the mural which hung outside the co-op for over 20 years. He attended George Brown college in Toronto in the early 1980s to learn the art of sign painting and maintained a studio practice throughout his adult life. His interests and styles developed and changed over the years and the gallery is fortunate to be able to include his first painting and drawing, as well as the last painting, River, which was literally taken from his easel for the exhibition. Terry was a motor cycle enthusiast and as president of the Toy Run he painted many bikes and helmets for other bikers over the years. Included in the exhibition is one of his air brushed gas tanks and some studies that he used to paint his fellow bikers’ bikes.
