Contemporary southern folk art, NC wood-fired pottery, and custom picture framing
Opening SOON: 16th Annual Miniatures Show!
Taking advantage of the mild weather we are experiencing here in WNC, I went for a drive and visited with Shawn Ireland. Shawn’s pottery is earthy, romantic and super functional. His glaze colors from the rootsy browns to the glorious robin’s egg blues also feature enough mica to make them sparkle in good light. You know how you look around sometimes and think the world has lost its attention to detail and given over to machine made slick, and you miss the rapture of truly well designed and aesthetically pleasing objects? Yeah, well dive into Shawn’s page, and feel hope. Thanks Shawn for the gifts you share with us that combine rustic & dainty in such a satisfying way. http://www.amerifolk.com/artists/shawn-ireland/

We at American Folk are wishing you a meaningful, beautiful & satisfying 2020. Dang: 2020. 2019 has been an eventful year in our lives, in the lives of the artists we represent and in the life of the gallery. As we march on into this brand new year we are pausing a bit, to recognize how fortifying it is to be a part of the Asheville scene, to be a gallery where creativity thrives, and where community has been built. With our presence on the Web, we can all stay in touch, we can all share in a continuing conversation about the importance of individual spirit. It is a privilege to be at the intersection of those who make and those who appreciate art in its many forms.
We look forward to all the the future brings…Happy New Year!

Painters, Whittlers, Carvers & Potters, American Folk presents makers from South Louisiana all the way to Maine with one goal in mind: To expose the world to the creative powers and originality of our regional artists. Their visions bring life, color, joy and complexity to our gallery and to your home. Self-taught art ranges from what is referred to as primitive all the way to exquisitely contemporary. All of our artists are living and working today, some have garnered world wide attention, some are exclusive to American Folk….all have a unique way of expressing their world & their hearts. We are inspired by them every day….
