Here are some prized vignettes from our 2011 Outsider Art Fair to whet your appetite for the next season.
As we prepare for the 2012 Outsider Art Fair in February (2-5) we look forward to some exciting new dealers with exciting material. Just as we presented Harris Diamant with the amazing “Electric Pencil” this past show.
Watch this space for announcements of activities and participants.
Our plans for celebrating the Twentieth Anniversary of The Outsider Art Fair will be devoted to enhancing the presentation of this exciting genre. Here we will be taking a look at the field as it was at
the beginning of the fair and how it has developed.
Rick Gekoski in The Guardian What is an antiquarian book fair? “Dealers sit in their little, lit booths, displaying their wares like girls in Amsterdam windows. A few potential customers drift by. Sometimes money is exchanged. Some pleasure is had. Usually nobody gets hurt, but many wives are not told of the transaction.“ Back from New York and now preparing for the London International Antiquarian Book Fair in June, Rick Gekoski muses about book fairs in former times, and today. An excellent article in The Guardian.
