In April, Paper Hammer Gallery will host a solo exhibition of the work of Barbara Earl Thomas—visual artist, award-winning writer, and Deputy Director of the Northwest African American Museum.
Thomas has exhibited her work consistently since 1982 and is currently represented by Francine Seders Gallery. She is a maker of things that include all manner of visual media and words. Egg tempera is her painting medium of choice, but her most recent foray into printmaking started in 2006 and has become her new love. The exhibition at Paper Hammer will feature representative selections from her two most recent printmaking series, The Reading Room and The Book of Fishing.
Barbara has exhibited artwork at the Seattle Art Museum, the Bellevue Arts Museum, and the Whatcom County Museum. Her work is currently included in Best of the Northwest: Selected Works from Tacoma Art Museum. Her last major solo exhibitions were in 2005 at the Evansville Museum of Arts and Science in Evansville, Idaho and at the Meadows Museum in Shreveport, Louisiana. Her work is included in a number of prestigious private and public collections such as the Safeco Corporate Collection, the Microsoft Corporate Collection, the City of Seattle One Percent for Art, and the
Seattle Art Museum’s permanent collection.
