Discussion Bound — Monthly Reading Group
Second Tuesdays, 3:00 – 5:00 p.m.
Frances Mulhall Achilles Library

Expand your literary horizons and join us for our monthly book discussion where we read and discuss books that relate to a current exhibition. Moderated by a member of the Museum’s staff or a volunteer, we exchange ideas and learn about books, art and each other. Bring your copy of the book.

This month’s book is From New York to Nebo: The Artistic Journey of Eugene Thomason by Martha Severens.

This text carefully chronicles the life of Eugene Thomason and his embrace of North Carolina. Deeply influenced by his New York City training with George Luks and the Ashcan movement, Thomason returned home to capture Nebo and the mountains of Western North Carolina through vigorous landscapes and haunting portraits. Martha Severens discusses Thomason’s personal and professional complexities in clear, direct prose that offers a portrait of a truly great artist.

Read in conjunction with From New York to Nebo: The Artistic Journey of Eugene Thomason.
