I make art in strange places and blog about it.

Is Thomas Kinkade an “Outsider”

There’s talk of outsider artists and there are despised artists. It’s funny because Thomas Kinkade is no outsider; he went to Art Center. He falls into the latter camp.

Jeffrey Vallance, a noted artist, possibly a bit reviled by the artworld in a different way, decided to curate a show of Kinkade’s. When he did, a lot of the world probably had to wonder what this guy’s deal is.
