Someone (actually, it was me) announced that the art scene is boring north of the 49th. I was wrong. I have hit the jackpot and unearthed ten more outsider artists working away here in Canada. One find leads to another and I was lucky enough to learn about an exhibit at the Art Gallery of Mississauga, called “Outside Coming In – A State of Freedom – Canadian Outsider Art.” The exhibit was curated by Duncan Farnan in 2006. There is very little documentation about this exhibit, but I do have a tiny catalogue with a photo of each artist’s work. I am hoping to get more details in the future.
Here are the artists included in the exhibit:
- Bill Anhang and Glenn Luckock
- Stanko Anicic
- Thomas Canning
- Manuel Da Rosa
- Richard Greaves
- Menno Krant
- Sorgente Palmerino
- Alma Rumball
- Jahan Maka (see earlier blog)
- Scottie Wilson (see earlier blog)
I started by contacting Menno Krant, and what an incredible talk we had. Details to follow in a subsequent post.
