The AiR (Artist in Residence) program at Thomasville Center for the Arts offers a fresh art perspective to our region, elevating emerging and experienced talent, while sparking creative conversations within our community.

This teaching artist residency, where resident artists receive studio space in return for teaching opportunities, encourages experimental creativity, collaboration, and shared dialogue with local makers and regional artists. Artists in Residence will develop a new body of work during a flexible residency schedule. For more information, contact

Ron Thomson | Art Partner

Thomson is an expressive realist working in oils. His collectors often describe his work as “seemingly alive.”  Over the years, he has created a vast body of work on various subjects and has recently focused his interest on his love of wildlife art and portraiture of both “Man and Beast.” His goal is to create an encounter between the viewer and the painting subject that transcends preconceptions and previous experience, and helps create an understanding of the connectedness of all life.
