Contemporary southern folk art, NC wood-fired pottery, and custom picture framing
Liz Sullivan & Cornbread-Reunion Show-begins on-line May 29th
Our pride in representing the region’s premier potters is enormous. Our regional soils make remarkable stoneware clay bodies, with interesting characteristics and total functionality. The nature of wood-fireing lends an unpredictability and uniqueness to each and every piece. Firing to 2300 degrees allows pieces to be dishwasher, oven, food safe…and in many cases microwavable…
Beyond the usability, each of our potters has an aesthetic and creative drive that keeps their pottery both interesting and collectable. Striving to break the constraints of regional traditions by add personal and modern twists gets our hearts thumpin’ every time.
A recent visit to see Michael Hunt and Naomi Dalglish resulted in a wonderful new selection of their inspired wares….to see them all, click here.
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….
We are OPEN, year round, 7 days a week, Monday – Saturday 10 – 6, Sunday Noon – 5.
Thank-you for your interest & enthusiasm. We love the artists we represent & we love you for helping to support them, which, in turn, allows them to continue to explore & create….
