Teri Henderson is a staff writer for BmoreArt, curator, and coordinator of Connect+Collect, a collecting initiative designed to engage new and established collectors and to build relationships with Baltimore-based artists through talks, gallery and studio visits. She will discuss her work as a staff writer for BmoreArt, and how she navigates her roles as the Connect+Collect Gallery Coordinator and as the founding Director of the Black Collagists Arts Incubator. She will emphasize the benefits and challenges of beginning her career without having a traditional art background and how she centers the voices of marginalized creatives in both her writing and curatorial practice.
Teri Henderson (b. Fort Worth, TX, 1990) holds a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Texas Christian University. She formerly held a curatorial internship at Ghost Gallery in Seattle, Washington. Henderson previously served as the Art Law Clinic Director for Maryland Volunteer Lawyers For The Arts and is currently on their Board of Directors. Her written work has been seen in: All SHE Makes, Justsmile Magazine, Kinfolk Travel, and the St. James Encyclopedia of Hip Hop Culture. Her work as co-director of WDLY, a collaborative nomadic platform for the curation of art centered events, addresses shrinking the gap between the spaces that contemporary artists of color inhabit and the resources of the power structures of the art world through the curation and artistic production of events. In her work as a staff writer for BmoreArt she highlights the voices of Black, brown, queer and non-traditional artists and creatives.
