After excellent shows in Los Angeles and Wynwood, the Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery will be in New York next week for Outsider Art Fair at 125 W 18th Street, NY 10011, from Thursday 2 March until Sunday 5 March.
The Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery has long been a champion of Outsider Art - work by the untrained, the self-taught and the socially marginalised, and has pioneered an appreciation of the resonances between Outsider and non-Western Indigenous traditions.

The fair is always one of the highlights of our year: a chance to see, and to show, work of rare originality and power, work that challenges many of the conventional expectations of contemporary art. Amongst the artists we will be exhibiting this year are the self-taught indigenous painters Dulcie Sharpe, John Kauage and Karen Napeljarri Barnes. All three artists, in their different ways, employ a bold figuration to celebrate the animal and human lives of their remote desert communities.
