ON VIEW: July 14 – September 10, 2017
OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, July 14, 2017; 6:00 – 9:00 PM
“Dazzling Places & Wild Creatures” invites viewers to explore a world of cardboard creatures made by Brent Brown and pattern-filled landscapes by Sybil Roe Thompson. Both self-taught artists live with developmental disabilities and use art as an important means to express themselves. This exhibition, made in partnership with the Outsider Folk Art Gallery, also addresses a larger conversation about the validity of untrained artists and how their work should be viewed as equally profound within the larger art community.
Philadelphia's Magic Gardens and the Outsider Folk Art Gallery are excited to celebrate the achievements of Brent Brown and Sybil Roe Thompson during a pay-what-you-wish opening reception on Friday, July 14, 2017, from 6:00 – 9:00 PM. Light fare will be served and a complimentary glass of wine will be provided by Barefoot Wine & Bubbly®.
