From the personal collection of Thomas Sgorous (1927 – 2012)

Thomas Sgouros’ career spanned over 56 years, as a renowned illustrator and a distinguished painter of sublime watercolors and still life canvases in his later career.  Sgouros was a Professor Emeritus of the Rhode Island School of Design and recipient of numerous prestigious awards, including the Pell Award for Excellence in the Arts. Currently his work is handled by Cade Tompkins Projects in Providence.

For those who got to know Tom personally he was a very gentle, thoughtful and productive artist. His passion for his art remained consistent throughout his whole life. As with most artists Tom collected an assortment of artworks throughout his lifetime from friends and colleagues. Bert Gallery is pleased to have a number of those works for sale during the Winter Exhibition. His family wanted to place these works into the collection of other art appreciators in the community to cherish and enjoy the same way they did as children growing up surrounded by Tom’s favorites.
