Thursdays at the Library will present “Collecting Outsider Folk Art” Thursday, July 17, 6 to 8 p.m. in the Macon County Public Library meeting room.
Cindy Solesbee, Brent Martin, Ruth Goodier and Debby Boots will have some of their collected works on display in the library through the month of July. On Thursday, July 17, they’ll share stories about the artists, and how they chose and collected works by southern artists. Enjoy some music, refreshments, art, and conversations.
Solesbee, who has collected hundreds of pieces for 20 years, will outline the background of the folk art movement and share some stories of the artists who created some provocative, political, religious and “outrageous” pieces.
