OUTSIDER ART FAIR
GETS A NEW HOME SWEET HOME
THU. 1-31-13 CHELSEA, NYC, NY
After wandering around the remnants of the Chelsea Art Gallery openings that were still open I stumbled into the Outsider Art Fair. I had heard it was happening, but didn't think I would be able to make it, and yet here I was. I managed to grab a lot of great shots of the work, while grabbing a few beers. A fortunate stumble, which made the night a lot more interesting.
I don't know what's so outsider about this art by the way, it's as good as if not better than a lot of the stuff you see at the Bushwick Open Studios.

I couldn't get many photos of the third floor because I had to meet my girlfriend at Gotham Comedy Club for a comedy TV taping, so I split out early.
I met up with Joseph Meloy at Gotham and handed off the press pass to him. He went to the fair the next day when it wasn't so "opening night" crowded and got the rest of the shots for me I didn't have time to get myself.
