To the man who was my neighbor, my friend, my landlord, my art patron, my community comrade and business leader, our Oak Park advocate and executive director - and so much more - Terre Johnson will always be remembered for the life he lived and the lives he touched. What a legacy to leave and what a life to celebrate. I will always remember you always Terre Johnson and be forever grateful to you.
|My heart longed to set up my studio in Oak Park and this beautiful building belonging to Terre and Michael was the perfect place. In 2012, they gave me the keys and we began to prepare the place to become the Patris Studio and Art Gallery.|
|On a hot 2nd Saturday in July of 2012, we held the grand opening of Patris Studio and Gallery in Oak Park with a huge celebration and open house.|
|At the gallery, there are many special events as well as all of the day to day art happenings. One special event that Terre organized brought us Mayor Kevin Johnson, Jay Schenirer, and a very important VIP from Washington DC.|

We are so very fortunate and honored to have Qiang Huang teaching here at Patris Studio for a 3-day Still life painting workshop. He is an amazing and highly accomplished artist and a fabulous teacher. We began the workshop today with a demo from Qiang Huang.
|Qiang Huang has a very systematic approach that he breaks down into basically 5 phases.|
|We were all captivated by his use of color, value and edges to create this amazing painting.|
|So much to learn, so much to practice. Thank you Qiang Huang for the inspiration to continue onward!|
