Discover Kathryn Thomas at
The International Astronomy Show 2017


'There's a promise hidden'What is it you see when you stare up at the night sky? If all you see are stars, then you are missing out on a whole realm of discovery. With the right perspective, you can see the edge of our Milky Way as well as nebulas, planets, and even far-flung galaxies. Truth be told, the Universe really is a magical place to behold even to the amateur stargazer standing in their back garden with a telescope.

For many people, such as the artist Kathryn Thomas, astronomy is a doorway into a world of extraordinary possibilities. Not only does it fuel the endless fascination of the inquisitive mind, but it also serves as a never-ending source of artistic inspiration. It is this influence that has inspired Kathryn’s latest work. Through Kathryn Thomas’ original oil paintings, she has showcased the true spectacle that lies beyond our known world, out there, among the stars.

Her breathtaking vision is finally ready to be unveiled. You too can bear witness to the work of this uniquely talented individual simply by attending The International Astronomy Show 2017.
