The Thomas Center Galleries announce the opening of AQUIFERious: Enter the Springs, an expansive exhibition to be presented in the Historic Thomas Center’s Main and Mezzanine galleries from Thursday, Oct. 1, 2015 to Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2016. The opening reception for the exhibition is Thursday, Oct. 1 from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
AQUIFERious: Enter the Springs is curated by Margaret Ross Tolbert, and is based on her award-winning book of the same title. A multi-media art experience in the truest sense, the exhibition will juxtapose Tolbert’s dramatic, large-scale springs paintings and eloquent poetry with contributing artists’ and scientists’ photographs, videos, cartography and writings. Featured will be the underwater photography by Jill Heinerth, Mark Long and Tom Morris, and springs maps by Eric Hutcheson, Georgia Shemitz and Jhwum-Ki-ak.
