BFA exhibit by Thom McMahon at Craft Center March 31-April 6A bachelor of fine arts exhibition in glass by Thom McMahon titled “Simultanagnosia” will be on display from March 31 through April 6 in the North Windows Gallery of the Appalachian Center for Craft.
McMahon grew up in Louisville, Ky., the son of Celeste Bernadette and Thomas McMahon Sr.
Since childhood, he helped his mother with her fledging art business, Berni Enterprises (a production glass company), doing whatever tasks a child could do. The bigger the Berni’s company grew, the more involved McMahon became.
McMahon said, “The Appalachian Center for Craft has been an excellent place for me to explore and develop my glass and mixed media sculpture. My work is typically aesthetic in essence, but school has encouraged me to move conceptually, to make the flamboyant subtle and never take the easy road out.”
A reception for the artist is set for 6 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, April 4 in the North Windows Gallery of the Craft Center.
The Appalachian Center for Craft, a satellite campus of TTU, is located approximately six miles from Interstate 40 at Exit 273 (Smithville / McMinnville). Go south on Highway 56, and turn left immediately after crossing Hurricane Bridge. This drive leads to the Craft Center.
