Family members of Sara Vessels Mills will join us to share stories of visiting the artist’s home and Sara’s love of collecting original Mose T art. The Gallery Reception is free and open to the public with light refreshments.
Experience life in Pike Road, Alabama through the eyes of Mose Ernest Tolliver, or “Mose T,” as Sara Vessels Mills’ private collection is shared with the public. Known for unique, vibrant images of women, fantasy animals, religious subjects, and self-portraits, Mose T created his images with house paint on pieces of plywood, Masonite, and old furniture. His work has been exhibited in the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Philadelphia College of Art, Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, and the Corcoran Gallery of Art. There are over 60 pieces of Mose T outsider art on display in this exhibition.
