Paradise Garden screening in an exhibition at Vassar College

July 20, 20140 Comments

Screen Shot 2014-06-20 at 11.19.35 AM“This summer the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center brings together paintings, sculptures, and drawings by artists who operate without academic training and outside of the mainstream art world. The work of self-taught artists has achieved unique status for its compelling expression of emotion and unselfconscious style. This exhibition focuses on the depictions of the human form and the human face – the apex of the figure. Explore the strange other-worldliness of works that evoke children’s art, mythology, or pure fantasy. Artists represented include James Castle, Henry Darger, Thornton Dial, Howard Finster, Bessie Harvey, Dwight Mackintosh, Donald Mitchell, Mose Tolliver, Bill Traylor, and Inez Nathaniel Walker, among others.    As part of the exhibit, we are proud to be screening the short documentary film, Paradise Garden, the story of the renovation of Howard Finster’s greatest achievement, as an artist.”

Our film team is very excited to have been included in their exhibition and appreciate their support of our work!
