About Paul Thomas:
Thomas creates beautiful, colorful abstract paintings exploring color, form and spatial differentiation.  There seems a ray of light infused into his vibrant paintings.  Paul studied at the Arts Student's League in NYC, and his works have been in public and private display in the US, Canada, France and Italy.

The Opening Gala for the Affordable Art Show 
is this 
Wednesday, April 3 from 7-10 p.m.
the Affordable Art Show
takes place four days (April 3-7) in downtown's Metropolitan Pavilion.  80 galleries exhibit thousands of contemporary art with prices ranging from $100-$10,000.


The Galerie Protégé is located on 197 9th Avenue (lower level), and gives emerging artists who create works in a range of mediums the opportunity to exhibit in the Chelsea gallery district of New York City.  
 The gallery will exhibit Thomas' new works on canvas and paper
 The Opening Reception is April 18 6-9 pm,
and the solo showing will continue from April 18-May 16th.
This is Thomas' second time exhibiting his work at the Galerie Protégé.
                                                                 
Heaven gives us a revealing answer, unique perspective and clear vision, brought forth by an unmistakable glory of well-calculated shapes and an explosion of color… Thomas' prophetic images are conducive to meditation.  Through his technique, he brings forth well chosen colored ideas, which in time become addictive and manage to alleviate in us the deepest ingrained sorrow.  The paintings form a harmonious whole.  The vivid, wild, sensual, elegant and colorful meditations, worked unhurriedly, resonate within us, and in return seek comfort in the utopic heavens.” 
Mariana Carpinisan. Curator/Art Critic/Art History Professor
Pieces from the Heaven Collection
are dramatic and sized 
36" X 54"


and, yet another chance for members to view his work,
the IFDA NY Chapter's  CCC on May 6 will
be hosted at Galerie Protégé from 5:30-7:30 pm.



We hope to see you there!

  5. When I look at these paintings, I hear beautiful music, sound waves on canvas.
    There is so much warmth and serenity emanating from your shapes and colors, I become as mellow as a cat in the dog-days of August. Congratulations on these exquisite works.

  7. Your art has a quality of movement. It flows. It bends. It reaches.
    And the colors evoke sound. Fluid, harmonious melodies.

    Beautiful. Spirited. Uplifting.
    Love to you and continued joy in all you do!
