Exciting news! This month I’m the guest curator on the fabulous online gallery, the Beholder! The Beholder has a ton of great art which made my job of selecting just a handful of pieces difficult. I was particularly drawn to art on the site that was understated, figurative, graphic, and neutral (color-wise), which I loosely-classify as contemporary folk art. The term “contemporary folk” has a broad array of definitions, but I think this collection provides a good sampling of some of the more compelling examples of this genre.  Scroll down for my statement on the collection.

Big thanks to Suzanne Shade, the Beholder’s director/curator!
