Contemporary southern folk art, NC wood-fired pottery, and custom picture framing
Opening June 4, 2019 : SNAKE CHARM SHOW
Chris Bruno visited this week! He thankfully brought several evocative & moody paintings. Part memory, part dreamscape, Chris began his art career as a professional photographer. His mother, who has painted all of Chris’ life, would invite him into her studio and he would ‘noodle around’ while visiting with her…He realized that if he could get really good at painting, he could paint his visions instead of having to find them and photograph them….Well, he got really good at painting…to see our current selection, click here: Chris Bruno.
We hope you will peruse our website of all our inspirational artwork and pottery, and visit when you are here in downtown Asheville.

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….
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….
