Yet, though the field (as distinct from the art itself) originated in Europe, its American component has frequently been viewed in isolation. --The concept of the "everyday" versus art theory --Throughout his career Claes Oldenburg has demonstrated the power of the imagination to transform the everyday environment. Drawing inspiration from the ubiquitous and the mundane, he has created artworks of varying scale and media that astonish with their wit, humor, and metaphoric associations. --wasted love letters--The thangkas are painted or embroidered images rendered on cloth, silk or paper which is mounted on a cloth backing and may be rolled up like a scroll when not hung. --Experiments in the Everyday places in dialogue over 80 works by two artists whose ideas have exerted a profound influence on subsequent generations of contemporary artists. --Cleaning Has Come Out of the Broom Closet --that outsider art consists of works produced by people who, for various reasons, have not been culturally indoctrinated or socially conditioned. --oatmeal--obiter dicta--There are a lot of recipes out there for paste paper. --an odd-goddess tutorial--oeuvres--On the Move,These works, as all digital images,are available on archival Lamda photographic paper in sizes ranging in size from A3 to 1200mm x 1200mm--"One Bead at a Time," a fabulous new book by Robin Atkins tells how beads, creativity, and healing are related. -- the wallpaper book--Lois first saw "glue art" (as it was known then) in the form of a decorated car in Marin County.

The work shown was produced by people who did not possess those characteristics usually associated with artists - neither were they represented by a gallery, nor was their work part of important collections in famous museums, the artists had never been trained in an academy - and the work had never been the topic of an article in an art magazine.--Grandma Knapp's '37 Road Trip via portage
