Springfield, TN – A selection of the paintings on view at the gallery of the Copper Vault in Springfield during the month of May are from a new series entitled “Given What You’re Given” by artist Terri Jordan. The new works include objects from the artist’s past homes and experiences.

Jordan says of the suite, “As in all my work, there are subtle symbols and points of reference within the landscapes of canvas. But in this suite, the works exhibited are part of a reflective moment. Since reaching the age of fifty, I continuously find that I am looking to my past while at the same time considering what I have left and what I will be leaving my son in guidance, memories, and a sense of being”.
