Upcoming at the Huntington Beach Art Center, Thom Wright has entered two paintings, “Jazz Duet” and “Jazz Guitars #4”.  Most of my work this past year deals with making jazz come alive.  The opening reception is Saturday, Jan 28, 6 – 9 pm. This annual show is a very popular classic for artists and residents to attend. Refreshments and music too. Located at 538 Main St., Huntington Beach. Hope to see SCA members there.

Thom Wright at Huntington Beach Art Center

The annual “Centered on the Center” exhibition at the Huntington Beach Art Center is an open show to the first 200 artists, and opens with a reception on Saturday, Jan 23, 6 – 9 pm. Thom Wright has entered two abstract paintings from his latest series entitled “Tectonic Episodes”. These are acrylic and oil on panel.
ART STATEMENT FOR “TECTONIC EPISODES”
California sits exposed and waits for the next great earthquake of the San Andreas Fault and all of its splinter faults in California. The earth’s tectonic plates in the athenosphere below the earth’s mantle push, shove and subside the continental plates that eventually burst and send vibration and volcanic forces across the earth. My paintings portray these tectonic events at the surface as abstract cataclysms and distortions of the global surface.
