Creatures Great and Small, Real and Imagined: The Art of Mae and Willie Tarver

December 5, 2015 - February 28, 2016

Some of these nearly two dozen fantastical sculptures were inspired by nature, while others show the uninhibited imagination of nationally known folk artists Mae and Willie Tarver. The Tarvers saw much of the world before returning to Wadley, Georgia, after many years of living in New York. In Wadley, Willie worked at Thermo King Corporation for twenty-five years as a refrigerator repairman and foreman, and Mae had a successful business of her own as a hairdresser. They were married for fifty-five years before his death in 2010.
