This panel runs in conjunction with the Deborah Thomas "Remembrance" exhibition at Avenue 50 Studio. The exhibition features the large, lush abstract paintings from Thomas' days as a New York studio artist hanging alongside more recent installations, writings and collaborative projects where she often delved into photographs and text on themes of family, found memory, landscape and the environment.
