Dazzling Places & Wild Creatures: Sybil Roe Thompson & Brent Brown
See Event Description
OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, July 14, 2017, from 6:00 – 9:00 PM Dazzling Places & Wild Creatures invites viewers to explore an imaginative world of cardboard creatures made by Brent Brown and pattern-filled landscapes by Sybil Roe Thompson. Both self-taught artists live with developmental disabilities and use art as an important means to express themselves. This exhibition, made in partnership with the Outsider Folk Art Gallery, also addresses a larger conversation about the validity of untrained artists and how their art should be viewed as equally profound within the larger art community.
