The Collector's Aesthetic: Victor Keen

September 14, 2019 - January 5, 2020 | King Gallery

Victor Keen’s interest in collecting encompasses much more than outsider art. He has also assembled an extensive array of Catalin radios, antique toys and banks, milk glass, toasters, vintage postcards, etc., many of which are housed in the Bethany Mission Gallery in Philadelphia, PA. This exhibition will highlight a sampling of these collections with examples of radios, toys and banks, and vintage worker’s ID badges in conjunction with the White Gallery’s exhibition of outsider art.

Special events:
Friday, October 4, 2019 @ 5-7pm | Free First Friday ArtWalk
Sunday, October 6, 2019 @ 2pm| Coffee with the Collectors | White Gallery 
Join Curators Elizabeth Szabo and LuDel Walter for a special Coffee with the Curators. Featured will be a discussion of the new Outsider Art: The Collection of Victor Keen with Mr. Keen and longtime friend Frank Maresca. Both Keen and Maresca are collectors of “self-taught”, or “outsider art”. Maresca, along with Roger Ricco, founded and operates the Ricco/Maresca Gallery in New York City.
