The pages of THOM are emboldened by the creative community, both near and far, that trusts our writers, editors and photographers to capture their stories.
The amazing thinkers portrayed on our pages have journeys that far exceed THOM’s character limit, though. To truly breathe life into these tales, Thomasville Center for the Art’s beloved, bi-annual publication is reimagining our approach.
Starting with our new workshop and event series, THOM to Life.
After a dozen print runs, THOM still has plenty to say. We hope you’ll join us to celebrate this edition of THOM, knowing that a new one is always on the horizon.

Take a deep breath.
Imagine a place with no boundaries. Here, you can be as creatively engaged or still as you like. Soothing colors surround you, and elements of everyday life – from the ocean to ordinary objects – are celebrated.
Sound like paradise?
Good. Because to land in this utopian world, one only needs to ‘Journey South’ to Thomasville Center for the Arts Downtown’s latest gallery exhibition opening, made possible by the generous support of J’s Wine & Spirits and Hampton by Hilton.
This spring, the Center will host Journey South featuring two artists: Austin Grace Smith and Cathy St. John. The community is invited to explore their works at the Opening Reception on April 4that 5:30 pm followed by an Artist Talk at 6:15 pm.
“I can look at the work of these two amazing painters all day,” said Darlene Taylor, Exhibition and Public Art Director at the Center. “The organic quality of both Austin Grace Smith and Cathy St. John’s work makes you feel at peace. They’re easy to love.”
From the natural ebb and flow of Smith’s wood-grain paintings to the aesthetic reality of St. John’s objects liberated from their formal boundaries, guests will feel transported by movement and color.
Smith’s work is on exhibit through April 29th,and St. John’s through May 30th. Admission is free. Reservations are encouraged, but not required. ThomasvilleArts.org.
