Award-winning, acclaimed Seattle artist, Barbara Earl Thomas, whose solo show, “Heaven on Fire” is currently exhibiting at the BI Museum of Art, will speak at the museum’s Eye on Artist event on August 27th.
In this podcast , Barbara gives BCB a preview of her talk, sharing what inspires her, her choice of materials and her methods. Her widely acclaimed show, favorably reviewed by numerous critics, spans over 30 years of her lively works in egg tempera, linocuts, blown glass, and expansive paper cuts in a site-specific installation, and includes some of her thought provoking writings.
Bainbridge Island Art Museum’s Eye on Artist series is part of the museum’s mission and focus on education, providing the public with an opportunity to hear featured artists speak about their work. The talks are in BIMA’s Frank Buxton auditorium and are followed by a reception with the artist.
This will be a particularly auspicious Eye on Artist event because it will be the launch of BIMA’s new book about Thomas’ show, “Heaven on Fire”.
Tickets for the Eye on Artist event can be purchased here.
