Lifelong Washingtonian, Alma Thomas is a singular figure in the story of twentieth-century American art. She developed her exuberant form of abstract painting late in life, after retiring from a long career as a schoolteacher. Blossoming in the mid-1960s, her vibrant, rhythmic art transcended established genres, incorporating elements of gestural abstraction and color field painting. Thomas’s abiding sources of inspiration were nature, the cosmos, and music. She created a style distinctly her own, characterized by the dazzling interplay of pattern and hue. 

Join DC Village member and SAAM docent, Joele Michaud, as she takes us through the exhibit of this amazing artist on Thursday May 16, at 1:30pm.  15 people maximum.

Plan to meet at 1:20 pm at the F Street entrance of SAAM for this one-hour tour. SAAM's location is directly above the Gallery Place/Chinatown Metro stop on F Street between 7th and 9th Street, NW. If interested afterwards you can join Joele in conversation in the museum's atrium where refreshments are available for purchase.
