INSTITUTE 193

The influential Lexington gallery Institute 193 will be an exhibitor at the important Outsider Art Fair in New York through Sunday.

At the fair in the Chelsea district of Manhattan, Institute 193 is presenting an exhibit called What is a (W)hole? featuring works by Kentucky artists Marvin Francis, J.T. Dockery, Beverly Baker and Robert Morgan and a video by the 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 non-profit 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."

In addition to the exhibition works, Institute 193 will be selling limited-edition prints by Holley and Lexington artists Robert Beatty and Louis Zoellar Bickett II.

The Outsider Art Fair opened in 1993 as a venue for outsider, self-taught and folk art.

Institute 193 is at 193 North Limestone.
