Come along and hear John Perry, Curator of Left of Center exhibition talk about "collecting stuff outside the box!"

Folk Art? Outsider Art? Self-Taught Art? Art Brut? Left of Center exhibition features some small gems from the John Perry Collection.

John Perry has been collecting works of art for 50 years and this exhibition Left of Center focuses on selected gems from his collection.

John Perry writes:
I have collected this type of art for over fifty years. In the beginning, it was called Folk Art but in the 21st-Century, it has many names…

“As ‘Beauty’ is in the eye of the beholder” we are making judgments about visual information all the time. It is my humble opinion that although these might not be great art I believe it is good art because it has been made with heart and soul, two key ingredients of any creative practice.

Like it or not I hope the collective experience offered enriches your life by these humble works of art even if for just a moment. These works make me feel like the richest man in the world.

Refreshments provided and gold coin donation, please.
