      Explore Bill Thursby's East Winds

      The title of this piece is an interesting choice, as the “east wind” is referenced often in literature and usually symbolizes change.
      Donated by Dr. Scott and Judy Gregory, this painting was given by the artist to the Gregorys’ son as a wedding present. East Winds features an open architectural facade in Thursby’s distinct checkerboard or brick pattern, with columns and stair steps flanking the sides. Like most of the environments he depicts, Thursby illustrated this building in lush and vibrant color and adorned the nooks with his interpretation of local fauna. One of the unique features of this piece is the large void in the center, implying a stage or theatre. In addition to the multicolored orbs scattered throughout the scene, a purposeful line of the orbs floats off to the left side of the piece. The title of the piece is an interesting choice, as the “east wind” is referenced often in literature and usually symbolizes change. Since this painting was a wedding present, the title most likely references the couple’s new life, and perhaps the facade is an altar of sorts. Another possible explanation of the title may reference Gregory, Jr.’s interest in sailing, which might suggest the structure is a harbor or port.
