Terryberry Gallery, art supporting art

Opened in 1986, the Terryberry Gallery exhibits local and international art throughout the St. Cecilia Music Center’s season. It is named after long-time supporters Parker and Mary (Monty) Montgomery Terryberry and it is truly a delightful accent with its varied exhibits to the already beautiful appointed building it is housed in and the music it is immersed in.

Artists interested in exhibiting at Terryberry Gallery can review the 2014 Terryberry Artist Contract and TERRYBERRY GALLERY floor-plan to discern if this is a good fit.

There is lots and lots of life on Grand Rapids’ Westside and lots of ways to tell it . . . !


“Developing images with the various mediums always has been fascinating to me. Consequently I have studied oil painting, pastels, colored pencils, graphite, and watercolor, that has been my main interest since I studied painting. I like to encourage others to enjoy it as much as I do through the process of teaching.”
