ARTHOUSE429 presented a Sunday Lecture Series March 23rd on the Intersection of Outsider, Folk & Street Art with special guest speakers Bruce Helander and Kathy Moses Shelton. Helander, an American artist, curator, art critic, writer and editor, and Moses, an art dealer who authored Outsider Art of the South and Helen LaFrance Folk Art Memories, discussed works of art in the current West Palm Beach gallery show, Detour. The artists featured in the show challenge and blur lines between traditional and non-traditional art making practices. Moses focused on the work of two African-American self-taught Southern artists, Helen LaFrance and Bessie Harvey, while Helander connected the dots between various artists in the show, all of whom are contemporary.
