Some Tramp Art Beauties

GEORGE AND SUE VIENER OF READING, PENNSYLVANIA HAVE BEEN MY FRIENDS FOR MANY YEARS. THEY LOVE FOLK AND SELF-TAUGHT ART AS MUCH AS ANYONE I KNOW. THEIR COLLECTING “BUG” finally got the best of them and so they decided they would sell some of their collection. The result is the Outsider Folk Art Gallery, located at the GoggleWorks Center for the Arts in Reading.

These tramp art pieces are as fine as any I have seen. Check out all of their art for sale here. If you have questions, this isn’t at all like a lot of stuffy big city galleries. George or Sue will explain anything or answer any question you might have. They have a lot of art to view.

Wonderful finds here! Also, I made an interesting discovery. Here’s an excerpt from an article I wrote about it this month…
Bring Out The YOU In Your Home Decor!
Bill Blass said, “Style is primarily a matter of instinct.” Decorating takes on a new meaning for each individual. Different tastes in decor mean different furniture, artwork and color palettes. So what is the rule of thumb for making your place zing if it’s not a certain style, pattern, or color?
Bring out the Y-O-U!
Make a statement and let your personality shine through! Add your zing to make it pop. Hang something personal on the wall with a few well-chosen accents-bold and beautiful. The trend for decor is becoming more and more personalized.
Whatever you want to say while decorating, say it with your own individual style. Put it out there for the world to see and don’t look back. Express yourself! When people enter your home they’ll shoot you a complementary smile, knowing it looks and feels sooooo perfectly like you. And no one can do YOU better.
