Paintings by Maria Termini

Putterham Library: Wall Gallery

On view August and September 2021

Maria Termini is an artist, author and public speaker. She served in the US Peace Corps in Bolivia and fell in love with the country and has returned many times to visit and explore. She spent much time wandering in wonder in the mountains outside the city of Sucre, in the jungle near Cochabamba, and in the salt flats of Uyuni. These paintings reflect the drama she saw and felt in the exciting shapes and colors of the land. Image to the right: Maragua Crater 2, oil on canvas, 3’x2′.

Maria Termini’s art has been widely exhibited and is in the collections of many non-profit organizations, as well as the Boston Public Library, the De Cordova Museum, and the Fogg Museum. Her latest book, Through the Mountains to the Stars, is a collection of stories and photographs about the adventures of a curious solo woman traveler in the Andes and especially Bolivia. 

Maria Termini has a studio and gallery in the Roslindale neighborhood of Boston. All the works in the show are for sale.  More information can be found on her website: For inquiries about the works or to arrange a studio please contact the artist by e-mail: or by phone 617 553 2762.
