“FOLK, FANTASY & OUTSIDER ART”
Original Exhibit Dates: December 3 to 31, 2010
For those who crave unusual, fanciful and full-of-life art, December's exhibit, "Folk, Fantasy & Outsider Art" is not to be missed. A varied combination of well-crafted, amazing work contributes to this exciting exhibition by seven artists from around the country - Amy Gross from the "Other Coast" offers biotope orbs -- little worlds constructed of textiles and beads; Wendy Olson sent her cute, no edgy bunnies and Scarecrow Girls painted on ceramic cups from the woods of Wisconsin; another ceramicist, Jenny Lou Sherburne from North Carolina created whimsical, organic tableware and obsessive drawings of children in bottles by Len Cowgill from Traverse City, Michigan are all new artists to the gallery. Seattle's Rick Araluce returns with new work - miniture rooms from the past completely fabricated by his hand; Laddy Sartin from the tradition of the Mississippi Delta folk artists "electrifies" his paintings of crows and creatures; and, Linda Green from Sanibel embellishes her whimsical women quilt-art creations with beads, hand-stitching and more French Knots than you've seen since Home Ec. The art in this exhibit can captivate, amaze and move the viewer - like all good art. This exhibition is guaranteed to be fun and fabulous.
