Visit to Fayette Art Museum
The small town of Fayette, AL has a noteworthy folk art collection with large holdings of the works of Jimmy Lee Sudduth and Lois Wilson, two well-known visionary local artists. Jimmy Lee mostly painted with mud and sand until later in life. Lois was educated and exposed to the world away from Alabama, but retains a singular, outsider-art style. We took a day trip with some friends to see the Fayette Art Museum and took lots of photos. The above piece is by Jimmy Lee Sudduth.
