On display is the work of over 20 WAE Center artists and most of the artwork is available for purchase. Self-driven and self-taught, this genre of work is referred to as "Outsider Art," meaning that the artist is not formally trained yet still create from an organic place of knowledge and experience. The visual representations of each artist's own raw experiences, thoughts, and feelings communicates their perceptions of the world around them, in varied and vibrant form.
