"Elena Thomas: Full Circle" A Retrospective
February 17 - March 31, 2023
Reception & Artist's Talk | Thursday, March 23, 6:30-8pm
The Weeks Gallery is pleased to present Elena Thomas: Full Circle, an exhibition spanning 15 years of the artist's unique practice.
Elena Thomas has an ever-changing multi-disciplinary practice that ranges across drawing, textiles, installation, sound, songwriting and performance. Her train of thought meanders through relationships she witnesses either first-hand, or as observer and eavesdropper. She finds herself increasingly interested in the way political issues effect those relationships. Her current project Five, Six, Pick up Sticks concerns the statistics of child poverty in her own part of the West Midlands. She is working towards a solo exhibition of this work in May 2023.
Elena has a Masters Degree in Arts Practice and Education from Birmingham City University’s School of Art. She is an Associate of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists where she was the first artist to have submitted sound work for her candidacy. Her visual works, sound and performances have been seen across the UK, in the USA and Sweden.

Mon-Thurs.: 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
