Scope and Contents:
The papers of painter Masami Teraoka measure 6.3 linear feet and date from 1966 to 2017. The collection includes biographical material, correspondence, writings, personal business records, project and exhibition files, printed material, and photographic material. Much of the collection documents Teraoka's association with Catherine Clark Gallery.

Biographical material includes copies of Masami Teraoka's resume, an appointment book, and assorted documents.

Correspondence is primarily business related, with some personal correspondence scattered throughout. Much of this collection appears to have been compiled by Catharine Clark Gallery, where Teraoka has exhibited since 1998, on behalf of the artist. Of the professional correspondence regarding Teraoka's work and upcoming exhibitions present in this series, a significant portion does not appear to be directly to or from the artist.

The writings series is arranged as two subseries: general writings and Masami Teraoka book project. The first subseries includes artist statements, article and essay drafts, lists, and notes. Many of the notes present in this series appear to be from Catherine Clark Gallery gallery regarding Teraoka projects and exhibitions. The second subseries includes correspondence, contracts, drafts of essays, notes and lists, and images related to the production and publication of the book Ascending Chaos: The Art of Masami Teraoka 1966-2006, published by Chronicle Books.

Personal business records include consignment and loan agreements, reproduction requests, inventory and price lists, and sales records. Also included is a "Mega Binder" compiled by Catharine Clark Gallery, which consists primarily of consignment, loan, and sale information and related correspondence.

Project and exhibition files include such material as correspondence, notes, lists, financial information, printed material, and photographic material related to Masami Teraoka exhibitions and projects. Also included in this series are VHS videos related to a documentary and to exhibitions.

Printed material includes books; a course pack from the University of Southern California which includes an essay about Masami Teraoka; exhibition announcements, invitations, and catalogs; magazines, newspapers, and clippings; museum brochures; posters; and press releases. Some printed material is in Japanese.

Photographic material includes personal photographs and snapshots, photographs and photocopies of works of art, and photographs documenting shipping damage.
