Termespheres art receptions in Big Piney & Pinedale
by Pinedale Fine Arts Council
October 19, 2012
The Pinedale Fine Arts Council (PFAC) and Sublette County Library are proud to present two separate art receptions for the "Termespheres" art exhibit currently on display at both Sublette County Libraries. A Big Piney reception will be held on Monday, October 22 at 5:00 p.m. at the Big Piney Library and a Pinedale reception will be held on Wednesday, October 24 at 5:00 p.m. in the Pinedale Library. "Termespheres" artist Dick Termes will discuss his unique artwork and present a slideshow at both receptions.
What exactly is a Termesphere? Imagine that you are standing inside a transparent ball suspended fifty feet above the Grand Canyon floor. You are higher than some canyon walls and lower than others. You have paints and a brush, and you begin to paint what you see on the inside surface of the ball. You paint the north face, then the east, south, and west. Finally, you paint everything visible above and below you. You move your globe to safe ground and step out to observe your paintings. Walking around the sphere, you see that you have captured the entire three dimensional landscape. In fact, you’ve discovered the structure of your visual experience.
Dick Termes acknowledges strong influences by M.C. Escher and Buckminster Fuller and has received high critical acclaim from aficionados of both camps. Termespheres are part of many prestigious collections.
The Termespheres art reception is presented by the Pinedale Fine Arts Council with support from the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund, the Sublette Community Foundation, Sublette BOCES No. 1 & No. 9, the Sublette County Recreation Board, the Sublette County Library, the Rocky Mountain Power Foundation, Encana, Shell, BP and QEP.
