James Castle 

When: May 9-Oct. 11 2009
May 9-Oct. 11. James Castle from the Permanent Collection. Self-taught artist James Castle (1900-1977), was born deaf and never learned to read, write, or use sign language. Castle is known for his unique images, drawings, assemblages, and books representing landscapes, interiors, and fantasy forms. The artist could be considered a pioneer in recycled art as he often ignored traditional drawing materials in favor of discarded cardboard, scraps of paper, and homemade charcoal and dyes.
