An Outsider Artist

Hey Bloggers, I was reading this weeks edition of the Village Voice newspaper, and as usual one of their full page color ads in their events section catches my eye. And this time it is an ad for the Bridge Art Fair New York 08 with a ton of participating galleries and an opening night reception and homage to the Tunnel Nightclub hosted by Amanda Lepore, Michael Musto, Screamin’ Rachel Cain and DJ Scotto with special performance by Amanda Lepore. And I always like going to events and blah blogging about them these days because hey, it’s less writing sometimes. At that reminds me, did I make it to that Outsider Art Fair this past year to see some outsider art? And what is outsider art anyway, art that is on the outside, and on the outside of what? Well, I guess I didn’t go this past year to the Puck Building where it is usually held, as I don’t remember freezing in the middle of January when they are usually held, trying to get there. And I do remember I actually made it to one of them years ago, as they are usually held there every year. And there are usually a ton of great outsider artists with outsider and folk art galleries from around the world to go with them like the American Primitive Gallery, The Ames Gallery. Berenberg Gallery, Bodell Fahey Umbrella Arts, Galerie Bonheur, Galerie Bourbon-Lally, Russell Bowman Art Advisory, Henry Boxer Gallery, Grey Carter Objects of Art, Cavin-Morris Gallery, Creative Growth Art Center, Andrew Edlin Gallery, Fischer Kunsthandel und Edition, Gilley’s Gallery, Galerie der Künstler aus Gugging, Carl Hammer Gallery, Marion Harris, Galerie Atelier Herenplaats, Dean Jensen Gallery, Keny Galleries, Inc., Phyllis Kind Gallery, Yukiko Koide Presents, Maxwell Projects, The Pardee Collection, Ricco Maresca Gallery, Rising Fawn Folk Art, JP Ritsch-Fisch Galerie, Luise Ross Gallery, Jennifer Pinto Safian, Judy A Saslow Gallery, Galerie St. Etienne, Tanner Hill Gallery, Wasserwerk.Galerie Lange and Galerie Susanne Zander. And I wonder how that Outsider Art Fair went this past year, as it’s been a while since I have seen those shows.
