Artist Talk at gallery F. - Tues, Nov 16

ARTIST TALK Nov 16, 7p
Free & Open To The Public

THE EXHIBIT This extraordinary show features the work of artists who have had experiences with mental illness, including a psychiatrist who has worked with the mentally ill. It leads to the question: How would art be different today if surrealist artists like Max Ernst, Paul Klee and André Breton had not been inspired by the art of psychiatric patients ninety years ago?

The magazine Raw Vision describes "visionary" or outsider artists as artists who invent their own forms and techniques and create private worlds. The art brut in this show is not made to please the desires of the viewer, but meant as a tool to fulfill the artists raw desire for self-expression through art. The paintings, drawings, installations, sculptures, text and video invite the viewer into other worlds.

THE ARTISTS Laura Hudson, Geraldine Kuttab, Cindy Buchanan, Sunny Boy Whitfield,
Robert White, Thaddeus Tekell, Ron Bass, Hans Vorbusch and special guests.
