Curated by J.W. Mahoney, Outliers is a dialogue between two Washington-area artists who have been working outside the boundaries of mainstream contemporary art for over three decades. Kurt Godwin (1956-2014) and Betsy Packard have effectively transformed ordinary objects, found images, and simple matter into fundamentally new conditions of meaning. Such expansions of art's real possibilities are what Outliers do.
