Macon Gallery Showcases Emerging Artist’s Work | Arts & Culture
Read about Thomas Sanders, an emerging artist who has his first solo art exhibit with the Macon Art Alliance.
--Written by Jonathan Dye
Thomas Sanders paints without regard to what will sell and what won’t. He creates the art he wants to make, his process untainted by commercialism. It’s an attitude one might expect from an idealistic painting student about to complete her MFA exit show or the starving artist dedicated only to his work. But Sanders is not a stereotype.
He holds two degrees. A BFA in graphic design and a bachelors in art education from the University of Georgia. He worked as a freelance designer for some time. He also worked in the classroom, but he never found fulfillment there. He was drawn to paint, compelled to leave teaching behind and pick up his brushes.
