Thomas’s art work displayed at courthouse
DENTON — The local artist whose work is currently on display in the Caroline County commissioners’ meeting room was recognized during their meeting Tuesday, May 16.
Nancy Thomas, a Ridgely resident who moved to the county in 1994, contributed several oil and watercolor paintings, featuring rural scenes from Talbot and Caroline counties and Delaware, which will be on display in the meeting room in the Caroline County Circuit Courthouse for the rest of the second quarter of the year.
Thomas began studying art in the 1970s, first at the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, Va., and later at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C.
She said when she moved to Caroline County, she thought it was the flattest place she had ever seen, but she grew to appreciate the terrain, especially the open skies.
The commissioners display an art exhibit by a different local artist or group of school art students every quarter.
