An opening reception for both exhibitions will be held on January 25 from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
Based in California, Thomas Campbell works in a wide variety of formats, from sculpture to painting to film, drawing inspiration from the fringes of contemporary American culture. His work was included in the seminal Beautiful Losers exhibition in 2004 and has been exhibited nationally and internationally.
“It’s fabulous to have an important coastal artist like Thomas — who has such a rich history with skating, filmmaking, surfing, designing, and artmaking — come to the mountains,” says Bolton Colburn, NEHMA’s Curator of Collections and Exhibitions.
A two-part, two-gallery sequence, Lint basket supremeo (a multi-medium survey) and Unii ciøn yyikæ (new works) give a sense of Campbell’s creative output over the last ten years leading up to today. Campbell completed his new works during an artist residency at Utah State University’s Department of Art & Design last fall.
