Terry Miura - Archive

Terry Miura is a graduate of the Art Center in Pasadena and has a professional background in commercial art, having worked in New York as a freelance illustrator for magazines and newspapers. Originally from San Diego, while in the Big Apple his paintings naturally turned their focus to cityscapes. Now that he’s returned to his native state, settling outside Sacramento, he’s once again delving into California’s rural landscapes for inspiration. He uses a wonderful tonalist palette, reflecting his gentle vision of rustic California as well as a humbler approach to the role of painting as just one of the arts contributing to an architectural interior. His loving depictions of northern California’s rustic scenery, executed in his distinctive and beautiful palette, celebrate the land with an extraordinary sensitivity.

Terry’s work is a part of the collections at the California Museum of Fine Art, Los Angeles, the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC, and the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, CA to name a few. He has also been featured in print in the June 2015 edition of Plein Air Magazine, and in Southwest Art, and American Art Collector, among others. As a very popular teacher, Terry holds painting workshops across the country, and information on his workshops can be found on his website.

Terry has been featured in several shows at the Gallery, most recently in the spring 2017 exhibit, “Paul Kratter and Terry Miura: A Language of the Land,” and spring 2018 show, “Terry Miura: Landscapes, Cityscapes, Figurative, & Still LIfe Paintings.”
