Alternative visions, the beliefs of the minority and the outsider can be found in the works of this exhibit. A freshness of execution, a stylistic uniqueness and a commitment to non-mainstream ideals gives the works some common ground. Some of the artists strive to create visual embodiments of a spiritual search, others create works with an uninhibited use of materials and sense of life.This exhibition is the fourth part of our 1986-1987 series The Figure, 5 Aspects.Includes the work of William C. Asman, Brazillan Ex Voto Figures, Lisa Collado, Bill Downer, Gene Fellner, Joan Fine, Lee Godie, Bessie Harvey, Justin McCarthy, Janet Morgan, Eddy Mumma, Philadelphia Wireman, John Serl, and Mary Sweeney.This exhibition is accompanied by a catalog with contributions by Alison Weld.
