About the Gallery
Founded in 2000 as KS Art in Tribeca, Kerry Schuss Gallery relocated to its current space on the Lower East Side in 2012. The gallery originally focused on presenting the work of "outsider" and self-taught artists, with a particular interest in neglected older figures. The gallery has introduced the work of previously undiscovered visionaries such as Ele D'Artagnan, Birdie Lusch, Pearl Blauvelt, and Alice Mackler to a broader audience, challenging the distinction between trained and untrained artists and emphasizing non-traditional approaches to artistic experimentation. It has since expanded its exhibition program to include the work of contemporary artists, including Kim Gordon, Bill Adams, Molly Smith, and Jocko Weyland. In addition to solo shows, the gallery also regularly stages thematic group exhibitions featuring artists of diverse backgrounds and generations, exploring the affinities between contemporary and outsider art.
