Contemporary southern folk art, NC wood-fired pottery, and custom picture framing
American Folk is fortunate to have established long standing relationships with renowned potters of the region. From the mountains of NC & Georgia to the important Catawba Valley region of the our state, all the way over to Seagrove, NC we offer a select group of potters. Highlighting the traditions that go back well over 100 years, the potters we represent create pieces that you can proudly display and confidently use for setting your table, baking in, holding the seasons fresh flowers. Many of the potters we represent do not offer their fine work in any other galleries, and we take much pride in that, but more, we share and teach and introduce people to some of what has established NC as a haven for creative endeavors. Kim Ellington, whose Urn is pictured here is an upholder of tradition as well as a creative force in the world of pottery. Take a look at his work here, http://www.amerifolk.com/artists/kim-ellington/ . Here is a handy link to our pottery page, where you can easily access all of the potters and pottery we represent: http://www.amerifolk.com/artist-categories/pottery/

Within the pages of our website and the walls of the gallery, you will see a variety of selectively curated contemporary self-taught artists. Painters, Whittlers, Carvers & Potters, American Folk presents makers from South Louisiana all the way to Massachusetts 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….
