Revelations and Reflections of American Self-Taught Artists

 

November 15, 2003 through January 18, 2004



Where: Willard Wankelman Gallery

Spirituality, a major theme in art for as long as humans have made it, is given accessible and vibrant expression in this exhibition of American, self-taught artists from all walks of life and from all regions of the country. Unconstrained by formal instruction and artistic affiliation, these inspired individuals represent heaven, hell, and purgatory; earthly temptations and blessings; angels, devils, and deamons- the deamons of society and those within their own hearts. Many self-taught artists have a profound influence on family members, who also take up the making of art. Included in this exhibition are two such family groups: Michael Finster, the grandson of renowned folk artist Howard Finster, and Mose Tolliver and his daughter, Annie Tolliver. This exhibition, featuring works by a number of prominent American self-taught artists, is curated by Robert Cugno and Robert Logan, directors of Media Gallery in Garnett, Kansas, and circulated by ExhibitsUSA.December 15 - January13: Closed for Winter Recess
