Meet The Artists: Theresa Gloster

Theresa Gloster first began painting in 1999, when she met Sam McMillan. When Gloster met McMillan, she knew she wanted to paint but was unsure of what she should paint. McMillan advised her to, "paint what you know." From then on, she began painting her memories. Gloster's work depicts memories of her past, her family, the simplicity of daily life, the stillness, the noise, the chores, the joys, the pains, the acceptance of life, but most of all the humanity of Appalachia's rural black...
