Contemporary southern folk art, NC wood-fired pottery, and custom picture framing
Opening Soon: James Buddy Snipe: On-Line Aug 3, in the gallery Aug 5th
Joe Engel is the ‘newest’ artist we are representing at American Folk. I was introduced to him by another of our artists, Ellie Ali. On this website, we have Joe shown under the category of Painter…and while paint is a part of what he does, collage and mixed media is more to the point. His wooden panels allow for the building up of layers of materials, or the scratching down for grooved movements. The overall effect is a cathartic dance of carefully constructed, engagingly chaotic textured surface. Joe has lived in many locations, including Asheville, but currently lives in Western Virginia. He explores many subjects, most recently whales have unleashed his creative joy….see for yourself.
Opening SOON: Alabama Folk Artist, James ‘Buddy’ Snipe. Click here for details.
REGRETFULLY, truly regretfully, I have re-implemented the MASK requirement to enter the gallery. That dang DELTA is sneaky; hoping we can avoid last year’s complete chaos again. Thank you for your understanding-Betsey-Rose

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….
