ANTECEDENT GALLERY Tom Moore S O L O E X H I B I T I O N January 31 thru March 30, 2014 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Tom Moore's life has been filled with both the compulsion to create and obstacles that have forced him to devise alternative ways to fulfill that urge. He always wanted to become an artist (or, possibly a superhero, as his early inspiration was cartoons and comic books). Moore trained formally at the University of Kansas School of Fine Arts, where he honed his skills in painting and learned to silkscreen. In 1994, at the age of 50, Moore developed Parkinson's disease and other serious health issues, and by 2003 he was forced to give up painting. Tom is still compelled to create, and his casual sketches on the backs of envelopes and scrap paper have continued to flow. Ironically, episodes in the hospital and rehabilitation settings have offered him uninterrupted blocks of time to focus on making these sketches. This exhibition will include a large variety of drawings and sketches in the Lawrence Arts Center's Antecedent Gallery curated by Roger Shimomura. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
