Contemporary southern folk art, NC wood-fired pottery, and custom picture framing
Doug Frati is our newest artist, and we are proud to represent him. He is from Maine of all places, and like a lot of our artists has a connection to the earth that informs his imagery. His bold graphics are met on closer inspection with finely rendered textural accompaniment. Not only is the grain of the wood he carves apparent in his reliefs; he chisels, gouges and manipulates the wood to create really cool [there’s an art word for you] patterns into the unstained portions of his sculptures. Take a moment to enjoy Doug’s art.
We hope you will peruse our website of all our inspirational artwork and pottery, and visit when you are here in downtown Asheville.
