FLAG POST: Barbara Campbell Thomas
February 17th – March 16th, 2017
Tether Projects is pleased to announce the fourth installment of the public art exhibition, FLAG POST. We are happy to have a flag titled “Flag of furry fiery failure 2017”, by Barbara Campbell Thomas on view to the public.
Barbara Campbell Thomas lives and works in Climax, North Carolina. Her paintings have been exhibited nationally, in such venues as the Weatherspoon Art Museum, CAM Raleigh, the Atlanta Center for Contemporary Art, Marcia Wood Gallery, The Painting Center and the Urban Institute of Contemporary Art in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She received her MFA from the University of California, Berkeley (2000) and her BFA from the Pennsylvania State University (1998). She has been an artist-in-residence three times at the Hambidge Center for Creative Arts and Sciences in Rabun Gap, Georgia, as well as at the Skowhegan School for Painting and Sculpture in Skowhegan, Maine. Additionally, she was a fellow at the Yale Summer School of Music and Art in Norfolk, Connecticut. She is currently an Associate Professor of Art at the University of North Carolina Greensboro.
Tether Projects is a curatorial collaboration between Rusty Shackleford and Julie Rudder. With a nod to the Chicago and NYC based project Temporary Allegiance, by Philip Von Zweck, FLAG POST is a rotating show of artist-made flags. Inspired by the broad use and display of flags from decorative to political and from personal to institutional, FLAG POST flags will fly for their own purposes.
