11 May Visionaries–Outsider Portraits by Fred Scruton
From May 11 through June 9, 2013, BCB ART will present “Visionaries-outsider portraits” by Fred Scruton.
Fred Scruton travels extensively throughout the country to document self-taught artists and their colorful artworks. His photographs celebrate the vitality of visions formed outside of the artistic ‘mainstream’. This exhibition focuses on environmental portraiture within the personal worlds each artist has created.
“The truth can be stranger than fiction”.
Scruton’s artwork is in the collections of The Brooklyn Museum, Erie Museum, PA, Kentucky Folk Art Center, University of Chicago, as well as many private and corporate collections.
Also on view at BCB ART will be a group show of gallery artists, including work by Ching Ho Cheng, Frank Cresotti, Rodney Alan Greenblat, Emily Gui, Julie McCarthy, Dan Welden and others.
A reception for the artist will be held at the gallery on Saturday, May 11, 2013 from 6 to 8 PM.
