... Colonial Beach Artists Guild presents a tour to ...
The Barnes Foundation
and American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore
Wednesday, October 10, 2012
AVAILABLE TO MEMBERS ONLY until July 1. Sign up early to guarantee your space!
Celebrated for its exceptional breadth, depth, and quality, the Barnes Foundation's art collection includes works by some of the greatest European and American masters of impressionism, post-impressionist, and early modern art, as well as African sculpture, Pennsylvania German decorative arts, Native American textiles, metalwork, and more.
"Visionary art as defined for the purposes of the American Visionary Art Museum refers to art produced by self-taught individuals, usually without formal training, whose works arise from an innate personal vision that revels foremost in the creative act itself." In short, visionary art begins by listening to the inner voices of the soul, and often may not even be thought of as 'art' by its creator.
