This exhibition features works from every period in Thomas's career, including rarely exhibited watercolors and early abstractions, as well as her signature canvases drawn from a variety of private and public collections. This catalogue traces Thomas's development as an artist and includes new writings by Bridget R. Cooks, Thelma Golden, Nikki A. Greene and Lauren haynes, as well as specially commissioned responses by leading artists Leslie Hewitt, Jennie C. Jones, Leslie Wayne, and Saya Woolfalk. As the work of many African-American abstractionists is only recently coming into the spotlight, this important book on Alma Thomas profiles a truly pioneering figure. Studio Museum website
