Howard Community College Exhibition on September 27 Celebrates Art of Teri Rizzutti

September 18, 2012

Private art showing and reception to fund HCC arts scholarship

(Columbia, MD) – The Howard Community College Educational Foundation (HCCEF) and Joe Tabeling will host a reception and private art showing of select works by the late Teri Rizzutti to raise funds for an arts scholarship in her name on September 27, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. in The Rouse Company Foundation (RCF) Art Gallery in the Horowitz Center at Howard Community College. Reservations may be made by calling 443-518-1970. There is no charge to attend.

The Teri Rizzutti Art Scholarship has been established by her husband, Joe Tabeling, in celebration of Teri’s life and passion for art. Teri was a prolific artist with a lifelong passion for fine art. She began exhibiting her work at local art festivals at age 11. Although she majored in fine arts at Towson University, her techniques were largely self-taught. Perpetually challenging herself as a painter, Teri explored and mastered oils, acrylics and mixed media. During her career, Teri owned galleries in Historic Oella Mills, Columbia, and Historic Savage Mill. Her artwork is offered in art galleries throughout the United States and is a cherished part of many corporate and private collections. A charismatic, creative woman who brightened every space she entered, Teri succumbed to cancer in October 2011.

Teri’s artwork will be available for viewing and purchase in the RCF Gallery through September 30. The gallery is open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and weekends from noon to 5 p.m.
