First off, Terri and Donna aren't real people. Like a lot of the stuff that comes spiraling out of the small gallery space at NW 36th Street and NW 2nd Avenue, T & D are fiction. Or a joke. Or both.
To really know, you'd have to ask Diego Caro de Briature and Clay Deutsch, the guys who actually run Terri and Donna gallery. They might tell you the truth. Or they might lie to your face because that's fun. The standing story, though, is that Diego and Clay picked "really awesomely terrible girl's names, the worst we could think of," and just ran with it.
What? Don't get it? Well, that's another awesome thing (besides fiction and art and music) about Diego and Clay ... Their promo materials read like the incoherent, logorrhea-laced, psychedelic poetry that you and your overeducated friends write while wasted on Liberty caps. You could call it next-level PR. Or a joke. Or both.
