unnamed-107Professor Thomas McAnulty (1942-2016) received his BFA from Philadelphia College of Art and his MFA from Indiana University. He was an artist and beloved teacher for over thirty years, creating a vast array of work in a variety of media, from liturgical pieces, to sculpture and relief, to drawing and painting. He taught at Adelphi University for over 20 years in the Department of Art and Art History. He was a professor of various disciplines, specializing in sculpture and figure drawing. He spent the last decade leading an annual study-abroad program in Florence, Italy. On view in this exhibition will be a range of McAnulty’s works from sculptures to drawings, as well as some stories from his students, peers, and loved ones.

“McAnulty’s work is about the simple act of looking and trying to clarify the subtle and complex relationship we have with the things we habitually overlook but with which we are deeply connected. He is drawn to simple common objects- a peach, a bottle or a table, and using a variety of materials and working in the a several techniques, including relief sculpture, charcoal drawing and painting, McAnulty presents his subjects stripped of unnecessary elements while retaining their essential and archetypal features. The resulting work, is arresting in its gorgeous simplicity and its ability to capture the very essence of the object and its connection to the viewer.”  – Carter Burden Gallery

Thomas McAnulty had been a sculptor and a recognized teacher for thirty years. He had many exhibitions in New York and his work is in the collections of Arthur Danto, Richard Seiver and many other private collections.
