THIS WEEK IN OUTSIDER ART
FEATURE OF THE WEEK
I’d be lying if I said when I found out about an exhibition in collaboration between SAGE Studio and Webb Gallery, I didn’t let out an audible hell yeah and then searched to see how quickly and easily I could make it down to Texas. Two of my favorite galleries and studios with some of the nicest people I’ve ever met present TRUCKLOAD OF ART, a show by Texans for absolutely everyone.
SAGE Studio in Austin, Texas is a studio and gallery space featuring artwork by artists with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Webb Gallery in Waxahachie, Texas is run by Bruce and Julie Webb who have “been selling soul through contemporary and visionary art for 34 years”. Both places, and both groups of people, not only produce and highlight the most amazing artwork but they make you feel welcome and like there’s no cooler place in the whole wide world.
TRUCKLOAD OF ART opens this Friday, September 23rd, from 7–9 PM at SAGE Studio in Austin. This incredible and mind-blowing collaboration is guest curated by Julie Webb and will feature work by 9 self-taught Texas artists: Hector Alonzo Benavides, Montrel Beverly, Tom Burleson, Yesenia Duran, Rick Fleming, Mark Cole Greene, Helen Burkhart Mayfield, Ike E. Morgan, and David Sulak.
If you can get there, you best do yourself a favor and get there because you will not regret it!
