In the decades she was painting, Alma Thomas moved through different visual stages;  though her representational pieces are both engaging and compelling, the artist’s abstract period is nothing short of astonishing. Thomas’s keen eye heightened the beauty of things—a sunrise, flowers, winter-soaked leaves— by transforming them, mosaic-like, into fractured patterns of dazzling color. This exhibition showcases the painter’s work from the 1950s to her death in 1978. In that period, this groundbreaking African-American artist pushed painting forward and produced some of the most spellbinding works of her era. For more information, visit studiomuseum.org.
