Who We Are
OutsiderArt.info is dedicated to my lifelong friend and only partner, without whose love I would surely fall out of time.

OutsiderArt.info and the International Outsider Exhibition of Modern Art (IOEMA)  celebrates works from around the world. Our only goal is to expose the greatest array of art to the greatest array of people. I like to think of the site as an electronic 14 Rue Clauzel and sometimes, when it is late and dark, I hear Pere Tanguy laughing! The key to everything we do lies in the great artwork created by the artists we are so honored to exhibit; without them, we would wander the earth vacant, shaking an empty fist at the moon.
Artists find their way here on their own, stumbling in through the dark internet fabric. I do not recruit artists. The submission page is simple. I have no board, committee, judges nor jury. Looking at an artist submission, if I like the work or think visitors will, I put the work on the site. I only accept artist submissions. I only email back on submissions that I will exhibit. I do not charge a fee but all exhibited artists send an original here for me to keep. You can see some of the work our artists have sent here. Once a submission is accepted, an artist can expect to spend time on the front page and then remain on the site and have a gallery for some time.

Some of the artists are physically, emotionally or mentally challenged, some are not and some tear cellophane into slivers of light. They are self taught, schooled, some with MFA's and a few inspired; a half a dozen or so are true visionary and some stand fiercely in battle to fight with evil. They stick together what comes their way. Some paint what they see and hear and feel. Others paint what they want us to see of what they think they see. Some are mad.
The design of the site is simple to purposefully focus on the artwork. There is an absence of descriptive text. Clicking on the artists' own website link on their gallery page will get a visitor dimensions, medium and the like. Our artists are free to sell their work through email or any way else and keep all the money. We hope to open a physical studio gallery workshop in 2014, our 15th year, in the Laurel Highlands of Western Pennsylvania to become better patrons to our artists.
I named the site OutsiderArt.info because I am far Outside The Art World and want to stay that way. I write, design and maintain this international outsider exhibition of modern art.
