Artist and collector, Willem Volkersz will share about the artists and their works in Compelling Visions: Selections from the Willem and Diane Volkersz Contemporary Folk Art Collection at the Missoula Art Museum, on view at the South Dakota Art Museum through March 12. Learn the unique stories of the artists and their works collected by Willem and his wife, Diane, in one of the most important folk and outsider art collections in the country.

It is the storytelling or narrative aspects of the artwork that particularly appeal to Willem and Diane. “Folk art is the development of these artists’ own unique format and imagery, and they have to tell a story,” Willem has said. “It’s something in their lives that they’ve negatively experienced, such as a divorce or death. It gives them emphasis to start telling their story, and that is what we’ve really been interested in.”
