Talk & Presentation by Author Sally Willowbee
Starting at 6:30 pm
Sally Lilychild Willowbee, author of the recently published book Found Artists: On Country Roads, Sides Streets & Back Alleys of South Jersey, will talk about self-taught artists and show a Powerpoint presentation of their work. Her book features the work of self-taught, primitive, folk, and visionary artists who live and create site specific art in southern New Jersey. These site specific works, also known as Yard Art, often arise out of collecting activity undertaken by the artisans. Their collections often reflect various occupational, industrial, agricultural, and other forms of local experience and activity, and preserve the memory of them within local communities. This talk is in conjunction with the exhibition Detour: Self Taught Artists on view from 5/16 - 9/21. The book will be available for purchase and signing by the author.
