Selected Reviews

Kurt Shaw, “Associated Artists 95th Annual”, Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh Tribune Review,
"Both Zets and Sonnenberg's are perfect examples of works that are socially and  emotionally charged. Likewise, in the second of the three galleries...Terri Perpich's "The Power of Images" is sure to conjure up bitter memories and personal viewpoints of the recent Terry Schiavo case....These works prove the exhibition's saving grace. They show area that artists are more tapped into the larger moment..."

Mary Thomas, “Associated Artists 95th Annual”, Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh Post Gazette,
"Associated Artists' 95th Annual admirable and provocative" ~ "Shawn Quinlan exhibits "Jesus Get Your Gun," which some viewers will find offensive, along with Terri Perpich's "The Power of Images," a bravado work that seems to reference the Terry Schiavo ordeal..."

Dr. Terry Smith, Juror’s statement, Associated Artists of Pittsburgh Annual at the Andy Warhol Museum, May 2005, on award winning painting “Power of Images
“the greatest medium in western art, painting in oils or more recently acrylics, has been in trouble for some years now.
  Powerful practitioners are rare anywhere…Terri Perpich’s  “the Power of Images” comments on the media frenzy around the case of Terri Schiavo, a brain dead woman whose dying became a political football in 2005”

Mary Thomas, “Transformation ~ International Exhibition” at Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, Pittsburgh Post Gazette, 2009
"...Terri Perpich's poignant (sculpture) "Degeneration" speaks to her father's battle with Alzheimer's..." 

Kurt Shaw, “Associated Artists of Pittsburgh New Member Exhibition”, Pittsburgh Tribune Review 2004
And speaking of themes, if any one particular theme seems to rise above the rest in this show, it is works of a spiritual nature. That is more than evident in such profoundly moving paintings as Ray Forquer's "Sojourner," which is a highly detailed portrait of an African king, and Terri Perpich's "The Green Velvet Cape," a painting of a not so stereotypical angel. Although Perpich is more direct than most in addressing the spiritual side, she still is not as bold as Shawn Quinlan, whose quilt "Who would Jesus bomb?" is sure to raise some eyebrows. "

Dianna Jannetta, Pittsburgh WQED fm 89.3, Bayer Arts Magazine~ Associated Artists of Pittsburgh New Member Show at the Pitt Frick, 2004
"...An antidote to our troubled world is "the Green Velvet Cape" by Terri Perpich.  It is a portrait of an angel with a gaze so riveting that ones soul feels transparent...on the canvas is written, ever so lightly, ' Forget no to show love to strangers ~ For some have entertained angels unaware.'

Kurt Shaw, “Studio K Group Show”, Pittsburgh Tribune Review, 2003
"Ken Beer, who along with his wife, Terri Perpich, organized the exhibition....although both are members of Associated Artists, they created this exhibition independent of that organization...this show offers a solid sampling of works by a large number of Pittsburgh area artists and is well worth seeking out for that reason."

Rex Rutkoski, Valley News Dispatch, "Valley artists exhibit their talents" 2005
"Terri Perpich advises her art students to carefully choose what and why they create, because the results will be communicated to others...Perpich, whose studio (business) is in Natrona Heights, Harrison, says she likes to draw and paint realistically, but notices that her style changes with the mood of her subjects or how she feels about them. 'I am less interested in capturing an exact likeness now, and want to get at the personality or character of the people I portray,' she explains."

Kurt Shaw, “Month, Day, Year ~ Pittsburgh Society of Artists”, Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, Pittsburgh Tribune Review
"Terri Perpich's print 'Journey' covers all the bases..." 

Mary Thomas, Pittsburgh Post Gazette, Associated Artists of Pittsburgh Member Show 2005 at the Hoyt Institute of Fine Art"...while Terri Perpich's adept black and white monotype "Moonstruck Meal" suggests something more somber than pleasurable."

 Kurt Shaw, “International PWS Aqueous”, Pittsburgh Tribune Review, December, 2007
“Watercolor exhibit is anything but wishy washy…Not that the exhibition contains a lot of portraiture, but it is worth mentioning one more piece that is sure to capture attention. “Rose, White and Very Blue” by Vandergrift artist, Terri Perpich, is another emotionally charged piece.
  A relatively simple arrangement, painted in light washes of black, blue and magenta, this portrait is pure emotion painted with an economy of means….Perpich has managed to treat her subject with supreme delicacy, conveying an equal amount of empathy and sympathy, something that is equally unmatched…”           

Mary Thomas, “Associated Artists of Pittsburgh- Drawing”, Pittsburgh Post Gazette, March, 2006
“Drawing” is the title of a sprightly exhibition by the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts…Particularly noteworthy are Kenneth Beer’s flowing “Incubus,” and Terri Perpich’s realist “G.K. in the Garden”…

Kurt Shaw, "Witticisms / Criticisms / Cynicisms" at Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, Pittsburgh Tribune Review, 2004"...among the 40 fine art prints on display in this exhibition sponsored by the Pittsburgh Print Group, visitors will find controversial works such as Terri Perpich's montype "Moonstruck Meal," which features an obese woman snacking in front of a fridge..."

Mary Thomas, “Prints- Witticisms/Criticisms/Cynicisms”, Pittsburgh Post Gazette, March, 2004
" Also at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, the Pittsburgh Print Group breaks new ground in subject matter....giving an edge to the exhibition are such works as Terri Perpich's politically incorrect obese woman of "Moonstruck Meal"

Pittsburgh City Paper, Janera Solomon, 2005 Associated Artists of Pittsburgh Annual at the Warhol Museum,
Social Commentary continues with a variety of painted works...Terri Perpich's , "the Power of Images" critiques American consumption of the Terri Schiavo case..."

 Kurt Shaw, Pittsburgh Tribune Review, "The Revolving Stellar Group show" at Studio K, 2004
In addition to (deceased artists) Davis' and Pershing's works, there are several works by prominent artists who are very much alive. They include printmaker Terri Perpich, who depicts a couple embracing in a delicate monotype titled "By the Tree"
