Wonderful new gallery in Providence, Rhode Island! From Hyperallergic.
The Kretzmanns worked for years at day programs for adults with developmental disabilities. “We were constantly inspired and blown away by the artwork these individuals made,” Josh Kretzmann tells Hyperallergic. But compared to, say, art students at the nearby Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), where Dana Kretzmann earned an MFA in sculpture, most of these artists lacked the resources needed to make their work visible to the public, let alone profit from it. “There are ways to see this great artwork, and there are many programs supporting these individuals throughout the country, but you generally have to go to a program’s space or a specific ‘outsider art’ show at a gallery,” Kretzmann says. Though Outsider Art is making its way into insider-y circles in big cities, it’s still, by definition, more difficult for the public to access than mainstream art.
