Terry Redlin from Hadley House Art Print Gallery
1999 Booklet of Artist's Prints (p. 40)

Few artists can rival the standards of excellence achieved by Master Artist Terry Redlin over the past 20 years. He is truly one of the country's most widely collected painters of wildlife and Americana. For eight consecutive years, 1991-98, Redlin has been named America's most popular artist in annual gallery surveys conducted by U.S. ART magazine. His induction into U.S. ART’s Hall of Fame in 1992 followed the magazine's poll of 900 galleries nationwide which that year, placed five of Redlin's limited editions in the top 11 in popularity Over the life of the poll, 30 prints have been included in that list. His use of earthy colors, blazing sunrises and sunsets and nostalgic themes are often cited as the reasons for his immense popularity.
Terry Redlin's interest in the out-of-doors can be traced to his childhood in Watertown, South Dakota. A motorcycle accident ended his dream of becoming a forest ranger, and he opted to pursue a career in the graphic arts. He earned a degree from the St. Paul School of Associated Arts and spent 25 years working in commercial art as layout artist, graphic designer, illustrator and art director. In his leisure time he researched wildlife subjects and settings.
In 1977, at the age of 40, Terry Redlin burst onto the wildlife scene when his painting "Winter Snows" appeared on the cover of The Farmer magazine. By 1979, demand for his work had become so great that he left his art directing career to concentrate on painting wildlife.
Since then, Terry Redlin's meteoric rise has been unparalleled in the field of contemporary wildlife art. In 1981 and 1984, he won the Minnesota Duck Stamp competition, and in 1982, the Minnesota Trout Stamp contest. He also placed second that year in the Federal Duck Stamp Competition. He has been honored as Artist of the Year for Ducks Unlimited (National and Minnesota), and as Conservationist of the Year-Magnum Donor by the Minnesota Waterfowl Association for his gifts of entire print editions. The National Association of Limited Edition Dealers has three times presented him with the "Lithograph of the Year" award for excellence in the medium.
In 1985, Terry Redlin added an entirely new artistic direction, limited edition collector plates. To date, he has released more than 30 editions, many of which are now available only on the secondary market. In addition to fine art and collector plates, Redlin's images also appear in a variety of collectibles and decorative accessories. Cabins, homes and church sculptures adopted from some of his most popular art prints join music and keepsake boxes, steins and ornaments in collectors' displays.
In 1987, Terry Redlin began exploring his interest in Americana subjects and nostalgic scenes of yesteryear, painting several images for his American MemoriesTM and Country DoctorTM Collections. Since then his annual Christmas prints have attracted thousands of collectors from coast to coast.
In 1992, he completed his ambitious work, the America the Beautiful series, depicting each line in the first stanza of "America the Beautiful." All eight, which depict American life from the settling of the west to the present day, were released as limited edition prints over a three year period, ending in January, 1995. The series has been showcased in art and consumer magazines nationwide. "Terry Redlin Paints America the Beautiful," a video presentation produced by Hadley House, earned a coveted Telly Award in the 1993 national competition.
Terry Redlin's immense popularity can also be measured by the success of his books, "Opening Windows to the Wild, The Art of Terry Redlin," released in 1987, and "Master of Memories," issued ten years later. A critical as well as a commercial success, Redlin's first book was a Certificate of Merit winner at the prestigious Printing Industries of America competition in 1988. Sales of "Master of Memories" has already introduced thousands to Redlin's world.
Terry Redlin derives the most satisfaction from his conservation work. Over the 17 year period from 1981-97, his donations to Ducks Unlimited raised more than $28 million, setting an all_time record in art sales for wetland preservation projects. By his own estimate, he has donated several million dollars in art to other nonprofit conservation organizations.
Terry Redlin's most compelling project was the construction of a museum to house his original art in Watertown, South Dakota where he now resides. The museum, which also includes a state tourism office, DigistarTM theater and state of the art teleconferencing center, opened in June, 1997. Over 400,000 visitors toured the Redlin Art Center in its first seven months. The artist donated the $10 million museum to the state in appreciation for an art scholarship he received after graduating from high school in Watertown.

Yes, we do APPRAISALS of prints. However, there is a cost.
The first print is $35.00 and each print after that is $10.00.
Just give us some lead time.     Allen

We regret the need to raise our shipping costs.
Postage costs have steadily increased while we held the line on our shipping prices.
We no longer can. We need to add $5 for each framed print under $200
and $10 to the price of any framed print $200 and over. There is
no price change on an unframed print.
