MFA Gallery Talk: From the Heart: Folk Art on Paper

Aug. 7, 2016

Join Curator of Contemporary Art Katherine Pill at the Museum of Fine Arts in downtown St. Pete for a gallery talk at 3 p.m. about the museum's newest exhibit, From the Heart: Folk Art on Paper. The exhibit invites visitors into realms never to be forgotten and brings a fresh perspective to a genre which is now recognized as a compelling contribution to American art and culture. Gifted artists include Bill Traylor, Thornton Dial, Nellie Mae Rowe, Lonnie Holley, Juanita Rogers, Purvis Young and Dilmus Hall. Many works would look completely at home alongside those by twentieth-century and contemporary maters with more formal training. However, because many of these self-taught artists live in rural settings, both real and imaginary animals often appear, plus explorations of religion and spirituality.
