"Outsider and Vernacular Art highlights the Victor F. Keen Collection housed in the Bethany Mission Gallery. Three compact, largely congratulatory essays introduce the volume's principal contribution--a catalogue of the collection that substantively deepens understanding of a still-emergent canon. Arranged alphabetically by artist, each entry includes a concise biography, a selected collection history, and color illustrations of the work on display at Bethany Mission Gallery. Knowledgeable readers will come away with a richer sense of the material that maps the breadth of vernacular, self-taught, and outsider art."-- "Choice"
