Today marks the closing of Eccentric Vision: Works on Paper from a Private Collection, at Miyako Yoshinaga Gallery. 20 works on paper from the 1970s to the 2010s celebrate nontraditional techniques and artistic visions, such as self-taught and outsiderart, gender identity, and humor.

⁠ ⁠

Boston-based collector Karen Moss prides herself on open mindedness and eccentric choices, including those by artists Kiki Smith, Marc Bell, Tony Fitzpatrick, Jose Barboza-Gubo, Joanne Carlson, Sue Coe, Marcel Dzama, Neil Farber, Mary Frank, Frances Hamilton, Susan Te Kahurangi King, Andrew M. Roczek, Jennifer Perry, Nusra Quereshi and Tara Tucker among others. ⁠

Moss developed an interest in Outsider Art as a natural evolution after being exposed to European Art Brut, the Prinzhorn Collection and the establishment of the Outsider Art Fair in New York in 1993. The works have greatly enriched the life and home of the collector and now she hopes to share them with a wider audience.
