About Terrance (Terry) Gregoraschuk
With over 35 years of exhibiting his artwork, Terry has developed a reputation for supplying
unique works of art in a variety of mediums and styles to both the private and corporate sectors including Canadian and Provincial Government Agencies, Museums and Hospitals. His artwork has won numerous awards and has been exhibited at the local, national and international levels including participating in art exhibitions during the Olympic Games in both the United States and Canada.
Terry exhibited his artistic talents at a very early age. After attending The Alberta College
of Art and Design from 1977 to 1980, Terry pursued a career in the commercial art industry, first working as an illuminated sign designer followed by working as an art director for a magazine company. During this time he also pursued a fine arts career. As Terry's reputation and client
list grew with his fine arts paintings, he decided to leave the advertising world to
devote himself to fine art painting full time and hasn't looked back since.
His medium of choice was at first watercolor but has expanded to include Acrylics, Oils,
Pastels / Charcoal / Graphite, Mixed Media and Sculptural pieces.
Not wanting to be pigeonholed into one particular genre Terry works in a variety of
mediums and styles, steadily exploring and pushing his creative boundaries.
His latest series "Trans4mations" is testimony to his passion for creativity as he explores
thought-provoking paintings depicting the trials, tribulations and joys of gender identity.
He has been commissioned for work by Canada Post, Environment Canada and The Royal Tyrrell Museum, and is the collections of The Alberta Foundation For The Arts, The Medicine Hat Museum, The City of Calgary, The Esso and Texaco Art Collections, Trans Canada Pipeline plus
numerous hospitals and oil companies across the country.
If not in his studio, you'll probably find Terry spending time walking along a beach,
cooking, working on his antique car, reading or writing another action packed fiction novel.
