"Outsiders in Mexico” at The Anton Haardt Gallery features dramatic peyote-induced visions of yarn shields and beaded masks made by the indigenous Huichol Indians of Mexico’s remote Sierra Madre mountains, alongside a collection of intriguing contemporary retablos by Mexican artist David Mecalco and Mar Coria's wildly colourful paintings of tattooed people inspired from her life in Mexican sideshows as a child. Also is an ongoing exhibit of Southern folk artists including Tolliver, Gibson, Sudduth, Rogers, and paintings by the owner.

An opportunity to see folk art from the deep south at The Anton Haardt Gallery. These artists share many of the same socio-economic restraints and most have been unexposed to the contemporary art world. Some deny ever having known they were making art at all. Now their art is achieving popularity and worldwide acclaim and many of these artists have been included in international and national exhibitions. The art pieces range from portraits painted on old galvanised roof tin to decorated guitar cases painted with latex house paint.

 

Jason Berry, American author, says the gallery has perhaps the city's most extensive inventory of high-quality works by Southern folk artists. Click here to see Anton talking about her new Mose Tolliver iPad book.
