By My Hand: Self Taught Artists – Exhibition Opening Reception
October 12, 2019-6:00 pm - November 16, 2019-7:30 pm
The Work of Self-Taught Artists showcases artists active throughout the South who have had little or no formal training. Alternatively referred to as folk art, vernacular art, or outsider art, the work of self-taught artists often possesses a freshness, individuality, and highly personal perspective that reflects the artist’s unique vision and need to create. In addition to highlighting the work of local artists with growing reputations in the region, this exhibition includes art by nationally recognized self-taught artists such as Howard Finster, Charlie Lucas, Cornbread, Nellie Mae Rowe and Bill Traylor.
