The Thomas Center Galleries announce the opening of the INSIDE OUTSIDE the spectacular world of mr. eddy exhibition to be presented in the Historic Thomas Center’s Main Gallery from Friday, Jan. 9 to Saturday, Mar. 14. An opening reception for the exhibition will take place Friday, Jan. 9 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
This landmark exhibition is the first look at a portion of the extensive body of work left by the late self-taught artist Eddy Mumma. First discovered by Gainesville’s own Lennie Kesl, Mumma’s work is now recognized as the extraordinary accomplishment of an important “outsider” artist. The collection next travels to the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore.
INSIDE OUTSIDE is curated by Anne E. Gilroy, with art generously loaned by private collectors who dedicate the exhibition to the memory and vision of Lennie Kesl.
