Anewex­hi­bi­tion at Stu­dio Ge­orgeville, en­ti­tled Out­sider Art, is run­ning since June 28th to July 13th and is worth a look, es­pe­cially if you are in­ter­ested in non-tra­di­tional works that “re­flect a dif­fer­ent way of see­ing art and its role in so­ci­ety.” Some of the artists par­tic­i­pat­ing in the ex­hi­bi­tion are Labrona, Hu­gleikur Dags­son, Chris Dyer, AL KRAY, Ja­son Kr­pan and Derek Guiler.
