Drawing from public and personal collections, “Standing in the Spirit: A Selection of Folk Art by Southern Women” starts from a historical perspective, with pieces by master folk artists such as Nellie Mae Rowe and Clementine Hunter. A fresh perspective is added by new artists coming from a folk tradition, including Lucy Hunnicutt, Sarah Rakes and Laurie Popp, among others. Come see a variety of artistic media, from traditional painting and sculpture to textiles and found-object sculpture. This exhibition teams three curators: Jeanine Taylor of Jeanine Taylor Folk Art gallery in Sanford; Frank Holt, executive director of the Mennello Museum; and Genevieve Bernard, curator of education for the Mennello Museum.
