Just Plain Folk: Works from the Michael Murrell Collection
January 16 – February 28, 2015
Opening Reception 6-8 PM Friday, January 16
The folk artists represented in this collection are from the Southeast United States. These artists are untrained and mostly unaware of the contemporary art world. They create “art from the heart” springing from an innate desire to express themselves visually.
Michael Murrell is a retired sculpture professor from Georgia State University. He began collecting folk art about 25 years ago and found this form of art to be direct and refreshing.
