Introducing …Irene Tison
During the month of October we will be presenting ten works on canvas and panel by Irene Tison in the 504 Annex Gallery, 1st floor Cafe
Goggleworks Center for the Arts, Reading, PA.


Irene Tison|”Sunday Babtism”|18″h x 24″w|Paint on Canvas|$600

Irene Tison grew up in a sharecropper family in Jasper County, South Carolina. She started painting the Gullah life when she was six years old.  Her twelve older brothers and sisters often would help her parents with the cotton crops. Irene remembers that her mother would come home from the fields and relax by sketching the world she knew as a child.  She would sit at her mother’s feet and watch her make a plain piece of paper come alive.

Irene believes every canvas is a dream waiting to be awakened to a painting.  Some of her paintings were featured in the 2009 movie release “Nights in Rodanthe”.

Thornton Dial Sr (b.1928-) Bessemer, AL | The Blues Life, 1991 | Charcoal, Pencil, and Watercolor on Rag Paper | 22″h x 30 w | $8000.00

 An important part of the story of art has been characterized by self-taught ingenuity and work ethic honed by struggle for survival and passionate appreciation for life. As an African-American man born in Alabama, Thornton Dial’s (b.1928) art represents a deeply important voice in this story and embodies many of the developments and shifts in the way art is made, understood, and consumed in the modern world.

Dial’s work is included in private and museum collections across the country such as the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, the Milwaukee Museum of Art, and the Indianapolis Museum of Art. He has had solo exhibitions at major museums including a joint exhibition at the New Museum of Contemporary Art and the American Folk Art Museum in New York in 1993, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, in 2005, and was featured in the 2000 Whitney Biennial.(text excerpt from Emily Christensen’s Winter 2011 article on Thornton Dial in Antiques & Fine Art Magazine) An important part of the story of art has been characterized by self-taught ingenuity and work ethic honed by struggle for survival and passionate appreciation for life.

Jim Bloom (b.1968- ) | Facebook Games, 2011 | 18″h x 24″w |
 Mixed Media on Brown Paper | $400.00

Bloom is deemed by most aficionados as an Outsider Folk Artist. A social reactionary creating intuitive social commentary, Bloom’s imagery has received international acclaim, showing from the Hamptons in New York to Aubagne, France.

Born in Allentown, Pennsylvania in 1968, Jim resides presently in California. Creating intense visual art inseparable from personal experiences, his human interaction, relationships, gender, sexuality and the mental health system, Bloom shares his interests in film, story-telling, and the visual languages of his culture. Wanting his pointed imagery to function like the movement of television, capturing the eye, quickly conveying messages and feeling, Bloom’s efforts highlight the power of line, light and gestural simplicity.
