Jay Wehnert is a Houston based writer, curator and collector. His new book is the product of his explorations into the nature of what is now referred to as outsider art and its origins in Jean Dubuffet’s concepts of art brut. He examines the lives and art of 11 extraordinary Texas artists who exemplify an essential isolation at the core their creativity. Jay will share their art, stories and more and will sign copies of his book following his presentation.
