2019 Featured Piece in Birds In Art at Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum
Evening Hunt
Original - Oil on Canvas

Short-eared owls are acrobatic raptors. To watch them hunt is to marvel at their grace and elegance. When spotting a mouse or vole, they hover in mid-air before diving to catch it. In Evening Hunt, a short-eared hunts the edge of a bog pond.

The 44th annual, internationally renowned, 2019 "Birds in Art" exhibition, was on display at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum from Sept. 7 - Dec. 1, 2019. Sixty of the 100+ pieces of artwork from the exhibition were then selected to go on national tour. This included 50 paintings and works on paper, as well as 10 sculptures. Terrill's painting was one of the artworks selected to go on tour. Locations on the tour include the Wichita Falls Museum of Art - Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas, the Newington-Cropsey Foundation in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York, and the Wendell Gilley Museum in Southwest Harbor, Maine.

The Woodson Museum is one of America’s premier museums featuring contemporary art of the natural world, located right here in Wisconsin. For details on the exhibit, directions to the museum and museum hours, see
