Barbara Campbell Thomas, Biography:
Barbara Campbell Thomas lives and works in Climax, North Carolina. Her work combines painting with quilting, overlaying their visual vocabularies to create complex formal dialogues within each piece that resonate with the details of her own life and history of each media. She came relatively late to quilting, which she learned from her own mother, but quickly realized its power as an art form traditionally practiced by women to inform and expand the range of her painting.
Barbara Campbell Thomas’s paintings have been exhibited in museums and galleries across the United States, in such venues as the Weatherspoon Art Museum, The Painting Center in New York City, the Atlanta Center for Contemporary Art, Marcia Wood Gallery in Atlanta, Georgia and the Urban Institute of Contemporary Art in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She received her MFA from the University of California, Berkeley. Barbara Campbell Thomas has been an artist-in-residence at the Hambidge Center for Creative Arts and Sciences in Rabun Gap, Georgia, as well as at the Skowhegan School for Painting and Sculpture. She received a 2018-1019 North Carolina Artists Fellowship.
