Grand Opening Art Event At Bellava
Acclaimed Bedford-based artist Jeff Terreson’s work to be shown at spa in Bedford Hills
Bedford Hills-April 19, 2012: Bellava MedAesthetics & Spa, located at 182 Route 117 Bypass Road in Bedford Hills, has announced that it will be launching an exhibit featuring acclaimed Bedford-based artist Jeffrey Terreson’s (www.jterreson.com) original oils and mixed media paintings. His work has appeared in the country’s top galleries, where his Neo-Impressionist paintings have earned him national and international renown. To celebrate the launch of this show featuring works for sale, Bellava will host a wine and cheese reception to meet the artist on Thursday, May 3rd, from 4-8pm.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to offer this rotating gallery of Jeffrey Terreson’s work,” said Bellava’s owner Erica Breining. “His neo-impressionist paintings are quite stunning and really enhance with the luxurious, tranquil setting we strive to create at the spa.”
Terreson’s work is a contemporary painting style that has an interpretive approach and embraces the textures of both new and traditional media. He is renowned for his interpretive organic abstracts and iconic imagery (horses, figurative landscapes) inspired by a lifetime of living in Bedford.
“I use all of my community’s influence to create,” said Terreson. “It’s not just about the art physically being made here, but about the lives we live here, the families we love, the nature that surrounds us and the friends we keep.”
Terreson uses brushes, acrylics, beads, sand, and wax, even dirt. He paints with anything that comes to mind that will help create a tactile surface. The result is paintings with an extraordinary texture that draw the viewer in.
Two years ago Terreson mounted a sell-out one-man show at Historical Hall in Bedford. This past year he has had continued success with one-man shows at the Brennan Galleries in Palm Desert, California, the Shanghai Art Fair in Shanghai, China, and a highly successful follow-up show at Bedford Historical Hall, as well as 17 images presented at the prestigious Hampton Classic horse show. In addition to his upcoming Bellava exhibit, he is preparing for the opening of a 4-week one-man show at the Samuel Owens Gallery in Greenwich, CT, with opening night scheduled for Thursday, May 31st. In October Terreson is slated for yet another one-man show to take place on prestigious Newberry Street in Boston.
“I like thinking outside the box,” said Terreson, “which is why I am so excited to be putting together this ongoing show at Bellava. It will allow me to stay connected with and be inspired by the local Bedford scene that fuels my work.”
Being an integral part of the Bedford-area community is important to owner Breining as well. “We love creating a highly personalized atmosphere at Bellava that reflects the special beauty and character unique to this region,” she said.
Everyone who attends will receive a goodie bag filled with vouchers for one-time-only specials at Bellava and samples of their luxury skin care products.
