Webster Terhune

Terhune, Webster
Webster Gregory Terhune, 58, of Westerly, RI, died on Sunday, August 26, 2012 after battling a long illness. He was the beloved husband of Jaclyn Ann Udaloff for 35 years. Webster was the son of Harry and Anne Terhune, both long-time residents of Stamford. A graduate of Rippowan High School, Web went on to receive a BFA in Art and Design from California Institute of the Arts and an MA in Media Studies at Rhode Island College. He held a variety of professional positions including Coordinator for an Animation Series at the Exploratorium, in San Francisco, and Curator of the Hoxie Gallery, Westerly, RI, where in 1993 his idea for the mural "Temple of the Soul" resulted in national coverage, from the New York Times, People Magazine and ABC's 20/20. He later worked for Ilux Imaging in Norwich, CT, and taught Photoshop at New England Institute of Technology where his original lessons were published by the school as a required textbook. In recent years Webster had a solo art show in Westerly, RI, and last year published an ebook of his artwork (view at www.photometamorphia.com), and, with his wife, an ebook entitled This World is Personal. Webster was also a synthesist/composer, enjoyed his cats, and loved taking long walks with his wife. He is survived by his wife, Jaclyn Udaloff of Westerly, RI, and his sister, Elizabeth Terhune of New York City. There will be no memorial service. In memory of Webster, please give to Home and Hospice Care of Rhode Island (HHCRI) in his honor. Web will be remembered for his kindness, his charm, his ability to make us laugh and his devotion to his wife.
