Abstract:

Featuring contemporary folk art from the Smithsonian American Art Museum, this volume honors a host of painters and sculptors, including S.L. Jones, Jon Serl, Rev. Howard Finster, Josephus Farmer, Albina Felski, and Alexander Maldonado.

"Contemporary Folk Art: Treasures from the Smithsonian American Art Museum commemorates Treasures to Go, a series of eight exhibitions from the Smithsonian American Art Museum, touring the nation through 2002. The Principal Financial Group® is a proud partner in presenting these treasures to the American people. This book highlights works created by self-taught artists over the past forty years. Whether in painting, sculpting, or weaving each artist has forged an individual path rather than followed established conventions. Magical and approachable, their art displays ingenuity, insight, wit, and reverence as they express their deeply felt experience of the world around them. Their inventiveness is apparent in the materials they choose. Tin roofing, model airplane enamel, marbles, bottlecaps, and costume jewelry are only a few of the ordinary materials the artists have transformed into objects of extraordinary expressive power."--Provided by Smithsonian American Art Museum.
