Outsider Art Fair 2022

Donald Ellis Gallery is pleased to announce its participation in the 30th Anniversary edition of the Outsider Art Fair at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York, February 3–6, 2022. 

The gallery will present a fine selection of Plains Ledger Drawings and two rare pictographic paintings on muslin created by Lakota and Cheyenne warrior artists in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Rooted in longstanding Indigenous pictographic traditions, these artists utilised newly available media such paper, muslin, ink and coloured pencils to express events of personal and communal significance. Uniquely placed at the intersection of art, documentary and storytelling, the works provide rare first-person perspectives on ceremonial life, warfare and courting at a time of increasing American imperialist expansion on the Great Plains.
