|Few artists can rival the standards of excellence achieved
by Master Artist Terry Redlin, over the past 23 years. In 1977, at the age
of 40, Redlin burst onto the wildlife scene when his painting "Winter
Snows" appeared on the cover of The Farmer magazine. By 1979, demand
for his work had become so great that he left his art directing career to
concentrate on painting wildlife.
Redlin’s immense popularity can also be measured by the success of his books, "Opening WIndows to the Wild, The Art of Terry Redlin," released in 1987, and "Master of Memories," issued ten years later.
Redlin’s most compelling recent project was the construction of a museum to house his original art in Watertown, South Dakota, where he now resides. Nearly one million visitors have toured the Redlin Art Center since it opened in June, 1997. The artist donated the $10 million museum to the state in appreciation for an art scholarship he received after graduating from high school in Watertown.
