RHD-RI is an arts based non-profit located in downtown Pawtucket that works with artists and musicians with disabilities in order to promote them and their creations and to raise public awareness of their diverse skills and voices.
In conjunction with the Pawtucket Arts Festival, RHD-RI will be hosting the 2nd Annual Rhode Island Outsider Art Festival, “The Out There Art Fair,” showcasing the work of a wide ranging, neuro-diverse and largely self taught group of nationally and internationally shown and recognized artists. The festival will feature eclectic art by participants of local studio programs like Flying Shuttles, also in downtown Pawtucket, Jamestown’s Outside the Box Studios and Top Drawer from Warren. Many other programs and artists from the New England region and beyond will be exhibiting their art and wares in this unique, once a year event.
RHD-RI is proud to present The Out There Art Fair; where, under one roof for one day only, will be original works of art and crafts created and for sale by artists who have shown at such prestigious venues as the INTUIT Art Fair in Chicago, the St. Louis Outsider Art Fair, the New York Outsider Art Fair and the Museum of Everything.
This event is free and open to the public.
