The Mennello Museum of American Art (Facebook | Website) will host an exhibition entitled The Unbridled Paintings of Lawrence Lebduska from January 25 through May 12, 2019.

The show will focus on Lawrence Lebduska, a popular modern folk art painter from the 1930s who was known for creating innovative gardens and dreamscapes. He was untrained and operated as an outsider artist in the New York art scene throughout his career but his work was incredibly desired by collectors around the world.

The opening reception will take place on Friday, January 25 at 6:30 p.m. with a members-only preview at 5:30 p.m.
