Some call it outsider art, folk art, art brut or even self-taught art like the latest exhibition at the Cleveland Artist's Foundation: Recollections and Revelations: Self Taught Artists from Northeast and Central Ohio, 1850-2007.
The exhibition features almost thirty artists, including the Reverend Albert Wagner, whose image above depicts a brightly colored cotton field scene. Challenging us and our thoughts about what art should look like, these self-taught artists explore their personal creativity in paintings and sculptures, often using non traditional methods and materials.
