. Adding to a robust trove, High Museum in Atlanta lands a gift of works by self-taught artists « JO LEE MAGAZINE

The Art News Paper – The High Museum of Art in Atlanta today announced a gift of 47 paintings, drawings and sculptures by folk and self-taught Southern artists from a local collecting couple, Harvie and Charles (Chuck) Abney. The donation includes 17 works by the African American artist Nellie Mae Rowe (1900-82), known for vivid colourful drawings brimming with human figures, animals, plants and decorative patterns. The High says the Rowe drawings gifted by the Abneys will significantly bolster the museum’s voluminous holdings of works by the artist, who also crafted found-object installations, handmade dolls and chewing-gum sculptures in her home.
