About the Exhibition

There are approximately 60 works by Peter Gethin Thomas in the exhibition, which is divided between a new body of work on the first floor and a retrospective of the artist’s career on the second floor. The retrospective includes highlights from multiple series painted from the 1970’s to the present. These works are in private collections and the artist’s collection, including a few for sale. One of these series included a historic house Thomas discovered in 1974 on Maryland’s eastern shore. He painted 100 watercolors of the house, finishing the series in 1979. After 43 years, Thomas returned to the subject of the house on the eastern shore completing 35 paintings in oil on canvas displayed in this show.
