In the time of the ancients

In the time of the ancients
There were no galleries
No juried shows
No mandated corporate expenditures for public art
No “wear your best black” wine and cheese openings

No monkeys rolled in paint post-modern simian expressionist
No hyper-syllabic art reviewers spouting esoteric excrement
No outsider art
No insider art
Just art

Now we have pigeon holes
Genres
Schools
Boxes for all occasions
Outsider
Is more than a name
More than a box built by the corporate art world
It
Is
A sense of being
We’re people that are
Because we are
Not because of the vocation or avocation we’ve chosen
Or by virtue of our training

Rather
Because we’ve given ourselves to the creation of things
Things that have beckoned to us to share their form with this
Physical world

These words, these works
Are dedicated to the spirit of those who
Share this universal breath
