Trish Thompson

Trish Thompson is a professor in the Studio Arts Department at Daytona Beach Community College, where she teaches painting. In her own words, Trish describes her work. "I love paint, the surface, the brush mark, the layering of color and texture. I also love the physical work of painting - priming, scraping, sanding, burnishing and using a variety of tools, and the elements of exploration and discovery that occur as the process unfolds. Because the process is important to me, I leave marks to serve as a reminder of the work and the tool, and as evidence of the interaction that took place between idea, paint and painter. Although themes in this work loosely reflect common human concerns with the natural world and the constant nature of change, the subject matter continues to be the paint itself."

 

In the last ten years Trish has had solo exhibitions at museums and art centers including The Polk Museum of Art, Harris House of Atlantic Center for the Arts, the Ormond Museum of Art, The DeLand Museum of Art, Mount Dora Center for the Arts, The Pensacola Museum of Art and Arts on Douglas Gallery in New Smyrna Beach. In September 2004 her solo exhibition, "Trish Thompson: New Directions," opened at the Museum of Arts and Sciences in Daytona Beach.

 

Selected recent group shows include the Florida National at the Appleton Museum in Ocala and the Florida State University Museum of Art in Tallahassee, The Florida Artists Group at the Ponte Vedra Cultural Center, and "Coast to Coast, Florida's Landscape Heritage," which originated at The Museum of Arts and Sciences and toured five art centers and museums in Florida. Currently she is among twelve contemporary women artists selected for "Florida Art, Florida Women: Selections from the Contemporary Florida Art Collection," at the Museum of Arts and Sciences in Daytona Beach.

 

Her work is held in many public and corporate collections in the southeast including The Windsor Over Peachtree and Invesco Corporations in Atlanta, the Huntington Bank Corporate Collection, Orlando, the Bert Fish Medical Center Corporate Collection, and the Museum of Arts and Sciences permanent collection. Public collections also include the Daytona Beach International Airport, the Volusia County Courthouse Collection, and the New Orleans Museum of Art. Her work can be seen locally at Arts on Douglas Gallery in New Smyrna Beach, Gibran Gallery in DeLand, and at Allyn Gallup Contemporary Art in Sarasota.

 

Recently Thompson's work was selected and given by the Governor of Florida to the Governor of Wakayama Province, Japan, for inclusion in the Governor's personal collection. Her work can be seen in other private collections in London, England; Medellin, Colombia; New York, New York; and in the southeast United States. In November 2005 she will be the Featured Artist at the DeLand Fall Festival.
