Visit Creativity Explored at the Outsider Art Fair in New York this January 2019!

Creativity Explored is returning to the Outsider Art Fair, New York to present the work of five female artists, highlighting the diverse and powerful voices of women with developmental disabilities working in our studios.

The booth will include new whimsical and intense multimedia work by Camille Holvoet, ultra-colorful and layered hand-built ceramics by Nubia Ortega, bold and lively avian paintings by Selene Perez, the ever-popular graphic oil pastels by Evelyn Reyes, and minimalistic yet crowded figure drawings imbued with narrative by Kate Thompson.

Representing strong personalities, various generations, and ethnic backgrounds, the selected work aims to open up a dialogue of voices that are not typically heard.

Through a suite of abstract and figurative paintings, drawings, and pencil-based works paired with hand-built ceramic sculptures, these five artists present an approach to artistic practice as a mythical imaginary that reflects and distorts the world--their world. Three of the five artists exhibited will be debuting at OAF 2019: Nubia Ortega, Selene Perez, and Kate Thompson.

Unframed works by OAF favorites Daniel Green, John Patrick McKenzie, Vincent Jackson, Pablo Calderon, and more will also be available at the booth.

The Outsider Art Fair has played a pivotal role in establishing the importance of folk, outsider, and self-taught artists. For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit the Outsider Art Fair website.
