Women Only: Folk Art by Women

22 Jul

Wish I were walking in the door of the American Folk Art museum today. The current exhibit, Women Only: Folk Art by Female Hands, looks wonderful. When looking back at the naive, outsider art of untrained creative women I’m always pleased to see that needlework is considered Art. It seems to be marginalized now, set aside in the stepchild category of “craft” and looked down upon as a lesser means of expression. Beauty of color, design, and execution come in many forms.
