Art Gallery “Relevance: Art, Style, Culture & Vision”
Start Date: 10/5/2019 All Day
End Date: 10/18/2019
Event Description:
“Relevance: Art, Style, Culture & Vision” by Fred Thomas
In Relevance: Art, Style, Culture & Vision, Haitian American artist Fred Thomas uses collage and the straightedge approach on subjects he enjoys painting.  Everyday items like drums, jars, lanp tét gridap (kerosene lamps) and kites are thematic springboards for his creativity. As he explains, “A bird is the very symbol of freedom, of human spirit and of the soul. The same way a bird can soar in the air, art allows me to transcend reality and depict the visible and invisible world.” His belief in art aims to enhance the beauty of the world and to make it a better place to live in by fostering dialogue, understanding, tolerance, respect, love and peace.
