Selected Works 1985- 2015 by Thomas MacPherson
The artist retrospective is an opportunity not only for the artist; it is an opportunity for his public to assess the stylistic changes in an artist’s practice over the long-term. Thomas MacPherson’s Selected Works: 1985-2015 is that occasion. Over the years his painting crossed a number of boundaries of the visual, from abstraction to figuration, and his materials output range from oil and watercolor to the 12th -16th century media egg tempera. In recent years MacPherson focused on depictions of his Italian and Scottish family heritage, producing detailed figurative scenes of family, religion and the contemporaneous world of American history they lived.
Thomas MacPherson is a Professor of Studio Art at Geneseo since 1985. He received a Mid-Career Summer Research Fellowship to study egg tempera painting in Italy. He has had numerous solo and group exhibitions that include: the University Gallery, Rochester Institute of Technology, Roz Steiner Gallery, Genesee Community College, the Tyler Gallery, SUNY Oswego, Sacramento Fine Arts Center, Sacramento, CA, The Reed Gallery, University Of Maine at Presque Isle, the Elmhurst Art Museum, Elmhurst, IL, The Atlanta Artists Center, Atlanta, GA and many other institutions.
Exhibitions are free and open to the public.
Gallery Hours: Wednesday - Thursday: 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. and
