Visiting an exhibition in person is a much richer experience than visiting online. Why not leave a comment to share your thoughts and impressions with others?
I liked the exibition a lot more than I had expected. I really liked the picture of man with two giant chickens.I also like the way he made his drawings with soot, spit and sticks that is really cool.

The exhibition is beautifully done, and perfectly complimented by the wonderful film of Castle's work which is continuously showing. Congratulations to the Foundation for Self-Taught Artists which made this possible.

Ahh! I am glad that his art work are being brought up to a museum like Philadelphia Museum of Art because people were often forget how acute visual sensibility Deaf people usually have.
Now due to his deprive-ness from any forms of communications, especially with the American Sign Language; this is not a surprise to me at all.
I am very glad that his art work are now being in exhibition.

I was unaware of Castle's work until the May 2000 show at The Drawing Center in NYC. I have been haunted by his work ever since, and will be making the trip from NY to see this show. I look forward to spending time with these incredibly personal and humble works in person.

These striking images are made all the more captivating when juxtaposed with Castle's tools (sticks, soot, chalk and the like) and his speech and writing books. What a fascinating glimpse into a bygone era.
