“The 6th Annual Outsider art in the Hamptons” Visionary, Art Singular, Folk & Self -Taught Artists (May 28th, 2011 through September 6th, 2011) This year’s exhibition includes new artists never seen on Long Island and in some cases in the USA. Mediums include works in oils, acrylics, sculpture, photography, and video. This year we are featuring 3 new local artists: Dave Geiser wrote and drew a series of subversive and twisted underground comics in the early 1970s while living and working in San Francisco. Along with Robert Crumb, Rick Griffin, S. Clay Wilson (among others) this group of groundbreaking artists created a series of brain-searing commentaries on the 1960s and 1970s heavily drug influenced counter culture movement. Sexual, subversive, and definitely twisted, you will not see the world the same after reading some of these books. Lance Corey of East Quogue “Corey’s demons, his passions, and his missions in life are expressed and dominate his work in raw, yet subtle and recognizable imagery. His art is his biography.” Garance, an amazing Art Singulier artist originally from Switzerland and residing in the small town on New Suffolk on the North Fork of LI. Her large scale acrylic paintings dazzle the eye of the viewer! These exhibitions are a collaborative effort with Three Non Profit organizations: Fountain Gallery and Pure Vision Arts from New York City, and Survivors Art Foundation from Quogue.
