DEEP OAKLAND PERSON

Terri Saul

Born in Glendale, CA in 1971, Terri Saul was raised in Los Angeles, surrounded by journalists, the Angeles National Forest, L.A. punk rock, wrestlers, the Santa Ana winds, large breaks, and little earthquakes. She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from UC Berkeley in 1993. She now lives and works near the Berkeley–Oakland border, and sells her work from a table on the corner of 23rd and Telegraph Ave at Oakland’s Art Murmur. She has named this rented card table (and a fraction of space around it) Gallery Buffalouvre. Katie Kurtz of the San Francisco Bay Guardian described Terri's work as gestural, with a kind of Donnie Darko twist.

Published in William T. Vollmann, A Critical Study and Seven Interviews, in the San Francisco Chronicle style section, and in Momentum magazine, she also writes. Bay Area locals may have seen her collaborative poster (integrating poetry and art) at ARTCRANK, A Poster Party for Bike People, at Chrome Messenger Bags in San Francisco this year. Some of her works are currently on display in a show called American Race, at Truman State University, in Kirksville, MO. She continues to be inspired by her namesake, her grandfather Chief Terry Saul, a formidable Choctaw painter, graphic designer, warrior, stomp dancer, and peyotist.
