Matthew Airent's Angel by Reverend Howard Finster, 1987, Private Collection.
Reverend Howard Finster is categorized as an "Outsider Artist," which means that he was basically self-taught and that he created his art out of a inherent need to express himself. His art took many forms including his home Paradise Gardens, located in Summerville, GA. The city hosts a festival every year in his honor (it is May 5 & 6 this year).
