Artist Talk: Lila Thomas

April 12, 2023 4:30pm - 5:30pm

The Art and Art History Department is excited to welcome Lila Thomas as an artist-in-residence for April 2023. Lila Thomas (she/they) is a black queer Seattle-based visual artist from Southern Louisiana. She received her BFA in Drawing/Painting at Nicholls State University. Her work consists of portraits and intimate interior scenes where she uses light and color to sincerely represent the people in her life and transform mundane environments into immersive spaces. Her work also explores themes of identity, family history, and cultural exchange through food, music, and mutual understanding of generational trauma. Lila’s work has been shown in the Amen Art Gallery at Nicholls State University, Lilith Pole Studios, Inside studios, and at a national juried art exhibition in the Manifest Gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio, where she won Best of Show. Lila recently finished the Inscape Artist-in-Residence program in Seattle’s International District where she created and exhibited a series of drawings and paintings. Lila currently teaches Figurative Painting at Gage Academy.
This event is free and open to the public.
