AMERICAN OUTSIDER ART

This winter, Geezer Gallery is excited to have the privilege to display the expansive, lifelong Outsider Art collection of Jane and David Kearns. This specialty exhibit provides a visual illustration of historical elements rooted back to the Civil War era, working to both illuminate a comprehensive story of American culture as well as to expand the idea of what it means for a piece to exist within the art community.

Highly collectible and admired, Outsider Art breaks the mold of the artistic establishment. With minimal contact to the mainstream art world, outsider artists’ drive to create is unstoppable. Using unconventional materials such as sugar mud, roofing tar, and house paint as well as styles unadulterated by artistic culture, these artists produce one of a kind pieces portraying the inner workings of their psyches. They feel that their experiences and messages must be heard, using creation as a form of communication and therapy. Stemming from each piece is a gripping story that will surely capture the heart and mind of its viewers. Working with collectors Jane and David Kearns, Geezer Gallery has discovered the secrets behind these captivating windows into American history.

Known by other names such as Art Brut or ‘Raw Art,’ Outsider Art falls into many categories such as the art of the mentally ill, tramp art, prison art, and folk art. Each of these groups faces disadvantages that bring about stigmatization, but this does not hinder their artistic pursuits. Currently displayed in reputable institutions such as the American Museum of Folk Art, the Smithsonian National Museum of American Art, as well as in galleries around the world, Outsider Art has become a highly valued genre.

Celebrating Portland!

Keeping Portland Weird – A Matter of Artistic (And Age) Interpretation!

How does a twenty-something artist capture the essence of Portland? How about an eighty-year-old? While most agree that Portland, Oregon, is one of the most beautiful cities in the country, have you ever wondered what artists of diverse ages and backgrounds see when they paint, draw or sculpt our city?

Find out at the 2016 Celebrating Portland, a lively summer exhibition featuring a group of local artists and their beautiful, interesting, and everything-in-between interpretations of Portland.

This unique art exhibit brings together an eclectic group of artists from a variety of backgrounds and ages for a dramatic, intergenerational show celebrating the many unique and wonderful facets of Portland. The talented artists showcasing their work have inspired each other, and hope to inspire visitors, at the same time leave their mark on Portland’s internationally revered art community. The work on display includes: paintings, prints, sculptures, mix media, and installations.
