A curatorial treasure hunt yields exquisite gems of painting, poetry, and literature from the work and collections of artists and authors.

Stroke of Brilliance is an open door, an empty room, a quiet view, an unfinished thought. We offer the work of the artists and poets of Stroke of Brilliance for your contemplation and for your pleasure.

Anne E. Gilroy, Thomas Center Galleries Curator

The world about us would be desolate except for the world within us. There is the same exchange between these two worlds that there is between one art and another, migratory passings to and fro, quickenings, Promethean liberations and discoveries.

Wallace Stevens

“Look, says the image, at how few words I need. Listen, says the poem, to what you can read between the lines.”

Günter Grass
