Terri Myers Wentzka received her BA in Painting from the University of Minnesota, and has returned to making art after many years as an award-winning writer and filmmaker. Her work has been exhibited at numerous local venues including TuckUnder Projects, the Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts, the Bloomington Art Center, and the Minnetonka Center for the Arts.
Minnesota Monthly magazine recognized her as an artist to watch in its recent article, “Best Art of 2016.”
Terri’s current artistic practice combines her desire to spotlight things that others might not notice while also incorporating a strong sense of story. Her work reflects upon the omnipresence of surveillance in our world, the real and illusory ways humans and other creatures protect themselves, the glorious indulgences of paranoia, and the mysteries of discarded grocery lists and other scribbled notes.
