At the fair in the Chelsea district, the Institute is presenting an exhibit called What is a (W)hole featuring works by Kentucky artists Marvin Francis, J.T. Dockery, Beverly Baker, Robert Morgan and a video Lexington artist collective Resonant Hole. It will also be presenting works by Alabama artist Lonnie Holley and New Jersey photographer Albert Moser.
The show, which opened Thursday, gained the notice of the New York Times, which wrote:
“At Institute 193, a nonprofit gallery and publisher from Lexington, Ky., notice should be taken of the pieced-together panoramic photographs of Albert Moser, the tumultuous ballpoint pen drawings of Beverly Baker, and much else.”
The Outsider Art Fair opened in 1993 as a venue for outsider, self-taught and folk art.
