On Thursday, June 24th, the Seminole Theatre will open its doors to the public for a Gallery Night at the Seminole. Starting at 6:00 pm, guests are welcome to browse the artwork on display, meet the featured artist, and enjoy light Hors d'œuvres.

Terre Rybovich’s drawings are the product of an intuitive process. She staples a large piece of paper to a sheet of plywood, then scrubs the entire surface with a thick stick of charcoal. Then she works spontaneously to imprint her hands, limbs and torso in the charcoal. Her aim is to start the drawing with random marks. 

Ultimately it is those marks that determine the outcome of the drawing. Spending as much time looking at the drawing as she does working on it, Terre relies on her intuition and her drawing skills to find the final image in the spontaneous marks. Working without preconceived results allows her to draw imagery she never could have imagined. 

Since becoming a serious birder, Terre also draws birds based on photos she takes. They sometimes appear in her intuitive drawings too.

Terre earned her Bachelors in Politics and Economics from New York University. She has a Masters in Rural Sociology from Wisconsin-Madison. Her first career was in grant-making to community and agricultural development programs. That experience instilled a courageous drive that Terre now channels into art-making.

Today Terre lives in Homestead with her husband Jon Ward. Her drawings have been exhibited widely in South Florida; they are in private and public collections.
