THIS WEEK IN OUTSIDER ART
Look, is it fair to only select ten of the million things I can’t wait to see this week at this year’s Outsider Art Fair. No, not at all. But do I have all day and night? No, no I do not. But I’ll try!
It is even fair to say I don’t even fully know what I’m excited to see yet that’s why I am planning on being there for all three days this year (Be sure to follow along on Instagram!). Last year I met some incredible people and discovered many new to me artists like the incredible Maurice “Le Grand Le Sueur” Sullins of Hana Petri Gallery.
This year will be no different, I can’t wait to meet new folks, discover new galleries and continue to have my mind blown away by the most inspiring artwork out there. Also, see the works by these artists I already absolutely know and absolutely love.
