This is a guide to self-taught and outsider artists in the United States, also called folk artists, and to their work. Interest in this field is exploding and information on hundreds of artists and the places where their work may be viewed or purchased is provided in this book. The first part covers galleries, art centers, museums, recent major exhibitions, organizations, publications and educational opportunities. Within each category, the entries are arranged by state, and each entry contains information such as address, telephone number and contact person, as well as a description and a list of the featured artists. The second part of the book provides biographies of the artists themselves, including information on styles and techniques. This guide will prove helpful to both the curious newcomer and the serious collector. Both established and newer artists are included, and all information is current. The comprehensive index allows for easy reference.
