Thomas Sarrantonio, current solo artist in the Middle Gallery, spoke to a crowded room on Sunday afternoon. Tom gave details of the development of his working methods, tools and materials.  He spoke of the 12 inch square oil panels,  each painted outdoors, usually in one day and the wall of ‘color studies’, oil on paper, done in the studio. Members of the audience asked numerous questions which Tom answered fully, much to everyone’s delight.  Many thanks!
