Barbara Earl Thomas: Heaven on Fire


Bainbridge Island Museum of Art Out of Town
June 25-Oct. 9 2016


  Save Event

Barbara Earl Thomas is a Seattle legend worth the title. (She’s a 2016 Stranger Genius Award winner, and she also recently won the Yvonne Twining Humber Award from Artist Trust.) You might know her as the charismatic founding director of the Northwest African American Museum, but she’s finally getting her due as the lifelong artist who channels deep wit, material mastery, and the presence of primordial forces in ordinary lives to weave stories. They’re told in layered prints, paintings, cut-paper installations, sculptures, and writings that hush and captivate. You have to get out of Seattle and over to Bainbridge to see the ways in which heaven is on fire. JEN GRAVES
