This exhibition shares but a few of the many names whose self-honed art at times lifted them from the vagaries of social indifference, brought beauty into a world sometimes dimmed from it, praised the heavens from the humblest materials, and gave witness to unnoticed if indefatigable lives. Exaltation comes in two forms here, as energized paeans of the spirit and as markers of self.
