Extraordinary Interpretations: Florida's Self-Taught Artists
    Gary Monroe

Extraordinary Interpretations fills a niche being the Sunshine State's contribution to the national dialog about contemporary folk art. Florida is fertile territory for self-taught artists, whose eccentricity informs their imagery. From Key West to Pensacola the book showcases a diverse lot; from retirees to the emotionally disabled to blue-collar workers, whose imagery contains a font of information that challenges and expands the accepted notions about visual arts.
