Wouldn't it be nice to know what's behind a work of art—to have an idea of what the artist was thinking and where their inspiration came from? True, there's something fantastic about interpreting art in your own way, but a little more info never hurt anyone.
Dave Thomas—whose Timeline Paintings solo exhibition is on display in the gallery in the Linen Building and features four large mixed-media canvases and 20 mixed-media studies on polypropylene—will give a talk today from 5-7 p.m. Check out his impressive work here, then head to the Linen Building. The exhibition will remain up through Monday, Feb. 20.
