Foremothers:my Alma Thomas - inspired work on view

I am thrilled to share that my Alma Thomas inspired paintings are on view until October 26, 2019 at the Buchanan Partners Gallery at GMU's Hylton Performing Arts Center in Manassas.


Intergenerational relationships and collective memory are central to this body of abstract paintings. Using bright, fluid colors and Alma Thomas’s signature paint stripe as a universal mark, this work explores the ancestry of art in Washington, D.C. and the relationships between the artist and her foremothers. The bright colors and sculptural paint build a visual tapestry symbolizing the bonds between generations.
