Despite the impending blizzard, New York City plays host to two art fairs and the opening of the 10th annual Master Prints New York. The Outsider Art Fair and New York Ceramics and Glass Fair opens today (January 21, 2016) and continues through the weekend, weather permitting. Master Drawings New York opens its week-long art exhibition with a Preview on Friday from 4 to 8 p.m. Following are details on all three art events happening in New York City this week.
Outsider Art Fair
The Outsider Art Fair will be held from January 21 - 24, 2016 at Metropolitan Pavilion. Early Access takes place on Thursday, January 21, from 2 to 6 p.m. with Vernissage from 6 to 9 p.m. The 2016 edition is expanded from last year and features 59 exhibitors from several countries presenting works by self-taught artists who also may be wired differently and whose work may be freer than artists who are trained and schooled in art history. Exhibiting galleries include Andrew Edlin Gallery, Ricco Maresca, Fountain House Gallery, Hirsch & Adler Modern, Morgan Lehman, Pure Vision Arts, Life on Mars Gallery and others.
Passes to the Outsider Art Fair range from $20 for a one-day pass to $80 for multi-day admission including after-party access. Metropolitan Pavilion is located at 125 West 18 Street, New York NY 10011. www.outsiderartfair.com.
