First Friday Reception: June 1 | 5-7pm | FREE

Thaddeus R. George is a self-taught artist. He started painting at a young age and renewed his interest about 9 year ago. His primary style is Abstract in Acrylics. Painting for him is a spiritual release and his voice to the world. His paintings express his many moods, thoughts, and emotions.

His was the resident artist with Deka Bakari Gallery, Inc. He has previously shown at McCloud’s, The Basement Gallery, Agora Gallery, Ironwood Studios, A-1 Art Lab, Club LeConte Artist of the Month Series, The Rose Center, Knoxville Museum of Art (United Mountain Defense Fundraiser), Sapphire, Louie Bluie Festival, Vestival, and William King Art Museum.

Thaddeus has been fighting Parkinson’s for the last several years – a portion of the proceeds from his art will be donated to Parkinson’s Research/Vanderbilt University.
