Event Details

Glenhyrst Art Gallery of Brant is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibit Humble Folk, featuring artists Barbara Clark-Fleming and Lucy Ogletree.

In this exhibition, the paintings of Barbara Clark-Fleming and Lucy Ogletree speculate on the style and content of contemporary folk art, otherwise known as vernacular art. Vernacular art is often referred to as “outsider art,” “naive art,” or “untrained art,” though these labels fail to describe an approach to art making that is imbued with innovation and experimentation. As cultural institutions in Canada address how they sanction certain artists and artworks over others, the work of those who lack visibility in the institutional art system deserve closer attention. “Humble Folk” is a step forward in this direction.

The Exhibition will be on display at Glenhyrst Art Gallery of Brant, 20 Ava Rd., Brantford from Sept. 23 to Nov. 19, 2023.  Exhibit opening to be held on Sept. 28 from 7:00 – 8:30pm.

Admission to the gallery is free.  All are welcome.
