William Woods University Art Professor Honored

By the end of the year Terry L. Martin, associate professor of art at William Woods University, will be able to add two more credits to his accomplishments.

On Nov. 3, Martin, of Jefferson City, will have the honor of being inducted into the National Oil and Acrylic Painters’ Society (NOAPS) 2002 Signature Artists’ Guild.

The Signature Artists’ Guild is an honorary fellowship of career artist members whose work is recognized for consistent excellence. It is an elite sector of the society, consisting of those select few who have met required criteria. With induction into the society, use of the NOAPS initials after the artist’s name is authorized.

The induction takes place at Columbia College Lake Campus, Osage Beach, where NOAPS Exhibit 2001 will be open for public viewing through Nov. 18.

Following the NOAPS exhibit, Martin will have artwork displayed in the Montminy Gallery at the Boone County Historical Society in Columbia. The show opens with a reception from 4 to 6 p.m. Dec. 2 and runs to March 30, 2002.

The exhibit will display the works of former students of Tracy Montminy who have furthered their careers in the worlds of art and art education. The title chosen for the exhibition is “A Lesson Learned.”

The Montminy Gallery showcases the talent of local artists and displays the collection of Tracy and Pierre Montminy.
