Terry Acebo Davis the artist and her then boyfriend now husband Mark Weiss of Eathwise Productions, Hanover, New Hampshire, summer 2011 – sitting on X Delta by DiSuvero

 


Terry Acebo Davis, a graduate of Cal State Hayward and San Jose State universities and a Cali native, visited the prestigious if moldy Dartmouth College in the summer of 2011 and spent considerable time at the Hood Museum.

She also visited her friend and  teacher Altoon Sultan, in nearby Vermont.

 

You have to look closely

 

Terry and Altoon:

I presume this is by Alice Neel* at the Hood

I was at my reunion and we were in Baker and Terry suddenly remembered that Altoon lived nearby so we comandeered a phone and reached her and went directly over:

Altoon Sultan, Terry Davis 2011

Terry and a corner of the Reserve Corridor, Baker Library, detail of Orozco fresco:

I’m trying to keep this post about Terry (and Altoon) and post later with something about my reunion from nine years ago, but I want to add this picture of me with a John Sloan painting of a rooftop in New York that I wrote about in McGrath’s class. 

edit to add, moments later: John Sloan, A Roof in Chelsea, New York, c. 1941­­/51, tempera underpaint with oil-varnish glaze and wax finish on composition board, 21 1/8 x 26 1/16 inches. Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth College, purchased through the Julia L. Whittier Fund. P.946.12.2. — I remember that he touched up the birds a bit, adding colors, in 1951 after about 10 years.
