    Artist's Reception: Friday, May 11, 2018 5:00 - 8:00 P.M.

    The Reverend Howard Finster achieved "super-star" status for his exuberant paintings, or "sermon art", and his impressive "Paradise Garden" environment was an ongoing expression of his religious conviction.  Having been a frequent feature interview on the Johnny Carson "Tonight Show", the artist achieved international recognition creating art from "other people's junk".  Sought after by museums and important collections, Finster became an Outsider art superstar and celebrity.
