Opening Reception: Saturday, September 8 from 4pm to 6pm

Beginning September 8 and running through October 19, 2018, Art Enables will host the 12th annual exhibit Outsider Art Inside the Beltway (OAIB). OAIB showcases self-taught, folk, and outsider artwork created by artists living and working throughout the United States.

Now in its 12th year, OAIB began as a way for DC-area groups working with self-taught artists to exhibit together. Six years ago, Art Enables opened the show nationally and invited over two dozen groups to participate. In addition to numerous independent artists, this year’s participating organizations include:

  • Pure Vision Arts (New York)
  • Imagine That! Kansas City (Missouri)
  • Interact Center for the Visual and Performing Arts (Minnesota)
  • Matheny Arts Access (New Jersey)
  • Studio In-Sight (Bethesda)
  • Bethesda Health and Rehab (Bethesda)
  • Saint Elizabeth’s (DC)
  • Arundel Lodge (Maryland)
  • VisAbility Art Lab (Rockville)
  • CREATE Arts Center (Silver Spring)
  • Make Studio (Baltimore)

Light refreshments and wine will be provided. The opening reception is free and open to the public.

Art Enables is located 2204 Rhode Island Ave. NE. For more information, visit
