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) Collection celebrates works from around the world to expose the greatest array of art to the greatest array of people. I think of the site as an electronic 14 Rue Clauzel and sometimes, when late and dark, I hear Pere Tanguy laughing! The key to everything we do lies in the great artwork created by artists we are so honored to exhibit; without them, we would wander a vacant earth, an empty fist pointing at the moon.
Artists find their way here on their own, stumbling in through the dark internet fabric. We do not recruit. The submission page is simple. There is no board, committee, judges or jury. 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 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 little slivers of light. Our artists 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 with color. 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 site design is simple to focus on the artwork and an absence of descriptive text. Clicking on the artists' own website link on their gallery page will get dimensions, medium and the like. Our artists sell their work through email, on their own site or any other means and keep all the money. We hope to open a physical gallery workshop in 2015, our 16th year, in the Laurel Highlands of Western Pennsylvania.
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.
