I just received a notice that advance tickets are now available for the 2020 edition of the Outsider Art Fair. The fair takes place January 16-19, 2020 at the Metropolitan Pavilion at 125 West 18th Street in Manhattan. The fair will showcase 61 exhibitors, representing 34 cities, from 9 countries, with 7 first-time galleries.
I always enjoy the Outsider Art Fair … here are two pieces that I saw at last year’s fair: at left, a portrait of Mr. T and Michael Jackson next to the World Trade Center (along with an unknown kid), by Broolyn-based artist Michael Pellew. Below right is a piece by John Foxell, whose doctor suggested that he channel his anguish from PTSD into creative pursuits. I’m looking forward to attending this year’s show as well, and hope to have reports on it after the show.
