Description

This exhibition is comprised of forty-five paintings and drawings by American grass-roots artists who work outside the realm of our contemporary, art-oriented society. The work represents a particular economic and social situation in which the artists' use of color, form, and design are the result of intuition rather than formal training. Catalog available.
