About the Artist: In his art, Tom Grubb seeks to create pieces that can be admired by a variety of eyes. For the observer familiar with star charts and space perception there are hidden details and intricacies for the skilled eye to admire. However, for those who are merely observing from a surface level, they can appreciate the textures, mixed mediums, and interesting use of rare objects. He seeks to meet people where they are.

Tom attended Appalachian State University and graduated in 1970 with degrees in Political Science and History. In 1983, he received a Master of Fine Arts from East Carolina University. He has been the Executive Director of the Fayetteville Museum of Art since 1990, and prior to that he was the interim director and artist-in-residence at the Museum. He has been, and continues to be, a driving force for change within the Fayetteville community.

He has received numerous awards and recognitions throughout his career including a North Carolina Visual Artist Fellowship from the Arts Council of North Carolina; an Arts Council of Fayetteville/Cumberland County emerging artist grant; a Southern Arts Federation/NEA regional fellowship for sculpture; National Endowment for the Arts grant recpientent for sculpture; and he created "Sprint Voyager", for the Festival of Flight in 2003.
