Sat 18 Oct - Sat 22 Nov - Ingenious Creator. Angel Row Gallery, Angel Row. 11am - 6pm. Free.

Ingenious Creator provides a fascinating introduction to the work of fifteen British-based artists known as 'Outsiders'. Their style is characterised by a highly intuitive approach, unaffected by trends in contemporary art or traditional teaching methods. Most of the artists are self- taught, a few are reclusive, some are directed by 'voices'. All the work is extremely personal, sometimes intense, usually quirky and occasionally very humorous, providing a view of a subconscious life from the margins of society.
