Fred will illustrate and discuss his collaborative documentation of artists and display-makers who are often referred to as ‘self-taught', ‘visionaries’ or ‘outsiders'.

About Fred:

From a home base near Erie, Pennsylvania, Fred Scruton travels extensively throughout the United States to find, photograph, videotape, and write about artists working outside the mainstreams of contemporary art.

Partly a chronicle of his travels, this website showcases the work of many well- and lesser-known non-mainstream artists. Often called ‘outsiders’, ‘self-taught’ or ‘visionaries’, Fred maintains personal friendships with many of the artists and typically makes repeated (and on-going) visits over periods of many years.
