Contemporary southern folk art, NC wood-fired pottery, and custom picture framing
NEW SHOW : The Apple, Opens here! Tuesday June, 2 at 11 am!
With all the new and changes we have been experiencing, The artists of American Folk have come together to create works around the familiar and beautiful theme of The Apple. Each artist has poured their individual perspective, life and musings to look at the apple from their own perspective.
The Apple will open HERE! exclusively ON-LINE at 11 am Tuesday, June 2. We will be here to answer questions and facilitate sales. On Thursday at 10am, June 4th we will open the show in the gallery, we can invite you in-with a face covering and a few at a time! Exciting.
We have missed you, and look forward to seeing you and finding our way in this new normal we share. What many of us in the arts have realized over and over: it is our creative spirit that will allow us to navigate this new reality. Together we accept this challenge, and will steer best we can.
The gallery is back OPEN EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK ; 11 – 5. The website is current and up to date, if you see something you would like to purchase call 828-281-2134, we are here to answer your questions and finalize sales over the phone…
Face Coverings are the new normal-the City of Asheville has mandated their use inside any store or public building-everyone who has come in has been sporting one…Thank-you! This has helped us feel comfortable about unlocking and inviting you in! There are a few other changes which you may notice, but mostly, we look forward to sharing with you about the artists we represent generally keeping our vibe ‘informal’.
FOR CUSTOM PICTURE FRAMING: We encourage you to call for an appointment. The hours of 10 – 11 am or 5 – 6 pm are set aside for framing appointments – we can create together with less contact with others, but are available many other times & will work with your schedule, of course. Just give a call, we will figure it out together: 828-281-2134
WEBSITE & CURBSIDE: As always this website is current; we offer phone consultation about individual pieces that you are interested in. We can ship or hold and offer CURBSIDE PICKUPS if that feels right, and it has been fun….
Since March 17th when the doors were locked, it has been a time of soul searching and discovery for the gallery, and I am sure for each of you. Throughout this time, we have had the luxury of good conversations with our artists and even some of you. We remain steadfast in our mission to represent a highly curated selection of artists, artists who have a very personal way to express beauty, heart and life itself.
WE ARE HERE FOR YOU! We are available via Phone: 828-281-2134 or via Email: firstname.lastname@example.org The website is up to date & check out our postings on our Facebook page.
Our COVID-19 HOURS of availability are 11 am – 5 pm, yes even Sundays.
Within the pages of our website, 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 Maine with one goal in mind: To expose the world to the creative powers and originality of our 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….
