Artist Talk with Vivian Terbeek

“Textile Art” is a Studio 55 Fine Arts Guild program featuring speaker Vivian Terbeek, Fiber Artist, on Wed., May 9th at 1:00 p.m. in The Gallery at National Avenue Christian Church, 1515 South National Ave., Springfield.


Vivian Terbeek will share the history of textile art and her process for generating ideas for her creations. Some of her work will be on display at the meeting and she will use a power point presentation to share her thought process and steps in creating a new piece.

Vivian works with commercial and hand died cloth, thread, yarns and beads to express her emotions in vibrant color and organic forms. She uses various surface design techniques to create a moment in time or a visual message. No patterns are used, and she works intuitively. As the thoughts come to her, she manipulates the fabric. This freedom of expression is a welcome change to her life after 30+ years in the Real Estate and Insurance world. Mostly a self-taught artist in oils and textiles she is enjoying a new life of self-expression.

Over the years, Vivian has won many awards for her art in both California and locally. One may purchase or see her art at Waverly House Gifts and Gallery 2031 S. Waverly.


Visitors and members are invited to "show and share" their art following the program. This event is free and open to the public. For more information contact by email
