“Out of the Box,” an exhibit opening on Sunday Nov. 11 in the Gaelen Gallery at JCC Metrowest, highlights artwork created by more than 40 members of JSDD’s WAE (Wellness, Arts, Enrichment) Center.
The guest speaker will be New York City art dealer Andrew Edlin, an enthusiastic champion of self-taught artists who operate beyond the discourse of mainstream contemporary art. Since its opening in 2001, the Andrew Edlin Gallery has developed his niche roster, which ranges from the unconventional animator Brent Green to the estate of Henry Darger. Edlin recently acquired the Outsider Art Fair, which will hold its 21st exhibition in January 2013. Seven WAE Center artists were first-time exhibitors at the Outsider Art Fair last year.
An ASL sign language interpreter will be available during the program. The event (which includes a cocktail reception) is open to all, with a cover charge of $18.00. All interested parties must RSVP to email@example.com, 973-272-7148. (no later than November 5).
The exhibit will remain on view through December 2012. Gallery Hours: Monday-Thursday, 9 am-10 pm | Friday, 9 am-4 pm | Saturday – Closed |Sunday, 9 am – 5 pm | For information on the Gaelen Gallery, please contact Lisa Suss at 973-530-3413.
