After 32 years of teaching and administrative service at the University of Oregon, Terri Warpinski is now a Professor Emerita of Art and is realizing a lifelong dream of being a full time studio artist. Her creative and scholarly career is distinguished by a Fulbright Fellowship (Israel 2000-2001) and most recently as a recipient of a DAAD Research Grant (2016) to Berlin working with the Stiftung Berliner Mauer as her host institution. She is the recipient of an Individual Artist Fellowship (2014), and two Career Opportunity Grants (2015, 2013) from the Ford Family Foundation and the Oregon Art Commission. She has been awarded artist residencies at Ucross (2000), Playa (2011, 2014) and Caldera (2016). Her work reflects her longstanding interest in the traces of human activity embedded in the landscape. Recently completed projects include Surface Tension: three landscapes of division; and Liminal Matter: Fences in collaboration with Portland poet Laura Winter. Terri has been a member of SPE since 1980. She served two terms as the regional chair of the Northwest Region (1986-1990), served two terms on the national board of SPE (2000-2008), and served two terms as the Chair of the board of directors (2002-2006).
