Playing its part in Art Houston 2010, The Whole Shebangwill feature the works of three artists, Tom d. Duimstra, Mark Fox and Eric Davis. The exhibit is Hooks-Epstein Galleries first display of outsider art. The line between outsider art and contemporary art is a very thin one, said Eric Davis, the gallerys curator. The work done by outsider artists typically includes materials that are easily at hand Many contemporary artists also use readily available materials to create work, said Davis. What sets the two genres apart, however, is the perception of the artists. Outsider artists have long [been] thought to be poverty stricken and mentally challenged in some form or another, said Davis. 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
