Americana Artist Terry Redlin A Look Back
By Steve Weisman, Free-Lance Writer

After a lifetime of artistic achievements
during which he created over 200
paintings, Terry Redlin, rated “America’s
Most Popular Artist” by the U. S. Art
magazine, announced his retirement
from painting and print signing in
2007. Possessing the unique ability to
tell stories through his paintings that
capture the very essence of America’s
rural life, Redlin’s artistic style has
become so popular over the past 30
years that many say it has actually
evolved into a genre of its own.
  The awards have come with the
notoriety: Ducks Unlimited’s Artist of the
Year, Minnesota’s Conservationist of the
Year . . . and the list of accomplishments
and accolades has continued to roll on

Terry Redlin Pays Tribute

                                                                                                        A bove print: H is First G ood-B ye

          “An American Portrait”
           This body of work is Terry Redlin’s
tribute to America. It is his way of honoring Veterans,
   Servicemen and Servicewomen, and the families
   who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom.
In August 2004, Terry Redlin made a special guest appearance at the Redlin
Art Center in Watertown, South Dakota to unveil his new series of seven
paintings! It was the first time the series was viewed by the public.
     “An American Portrait” is a collection of paintings that had been in
the works since 1995. Inspired by Terry Redlin’s personal experiences, the
paintings capture the emotion of seven heartfelt firsts. Together, these
individual paintings create “An American Portrait.”With incredible attention
to the finest detail, each painting in the series stands alone, yet is built
upon the preceding images . . . first friend, first day of school, first date,
first graduation, first homecoming, first good-bye, and ultimately, the last good-bye. This body of work is Terry Redlin’s tribute to America.
It is his way of honoring Veterans, Servicemen and Servicewomen, and the families who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom.
     “An American Portrait” is on permanent display on the second floor of the Redlin Art Center. It has been added to an area in the Gallery
Redlin referred to as the “America Room.” In addition to the new series of seven, the “America Room” showcases Redlin’s “America the
Beautiful” series of eight, his painting, “Flying Free,” and his pair of paintings, “Good Morning, America!” and “Good Evening, America!”
     While visiting the Redlin Art Center, visitors are invited to enjoy complimentary video presentations about the making of both the
“America the Beautiful” series and “An American Portrait.”

  Amphitheater “The Legacy of Terry Redlin: A Lifetime of Memories”.
     This new DVD production is a tribute to Terry. Inside this 108-seat theater, guests will hear
  Terry talk about his process and techniques and will see never before seen footage of Terry
  painting at his easel. With multiple showings daily, Redlin enthusiasts are invited to take in this
  special production honoring the man, his art, and the memories he painted. Admission is free.

                                                     President Joy Nelson. In 2019, the City of Watertown recognized
                                                     the importance of Artwalk by including us in its budget to help
                                                     in financing the project, she said. LATI students helped with the
                                                     placement of the sculptures also in 2019. This partnership, which
