As an admirer of folk art, I visited the Ogden Museum to see “The Gasperi Collection: Self-taught, Outsider and Visionary Art” exhibit that includes 26 previously unseen works from the sketchbook of Louisiana artist Clementine Hunter. What a treat! Hunter captures the emotions and spirit of her community so vividly in her paintings. She has a natural eye for composition, and her use of colors and shadows have tangible life force. Art collector and owner of Gasperi Gallery, Richard Gasperi, explains that during Katrina when he had to flee the rising waters in his apartment, this sketchbook was what he chose to save and take with him. Viewing the prints in person, you can easily understand why.
