The Outsider Art Fair’s 31st edition has brought 64 galleries’ stands of work from self-taught, folk, naïve and outsider artists—including 12 first-time exhibitors—to New York’s Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea. As ever, the fair is a rich and eclectic offering; below are five stand-out presentations.

From Bill Arning Exhibitions in Houston, artist Alexandria Deter’s False Prophet series of mixed-media embroidery works depicts female cult leaders linked to killings. Deter began work on the series after watching several crime documentaries. It depicts cult figures including Bonnie Nettles from Heaven’s Gate; Karen Zerby, who leads a cult called The Family International; and Hak Ja Han Moon, a leader in the Unification Church. Pieces from the series range from $350 to $1,500, and the gallery is offering a discount for customers who purchase more than one.
