Contemporary southern folk art, NC wood-fired pottery, and custom picture framing
YES, we are OPEN 7 days a week: 11 - 5.
What a FINE week we have had here at American Folk: Ivy Billiot, our South Louisiana bird carver got word to us that he is OK down there in Terrabonne Parish…hard hit by hurrican Ida. On Saturday, Kent Ambler, our Woodblock Print maker popped in, bringing a new print, and replenishing our offerings, then on Sunday, Ellen Langford strolled in the door with a wonderful new selection of her paintings. Ellen found her ‘voice’ for painting while living in Rural Mississippi. She became emotionally connected to its landscapes and its people while employed as a Rural Medic. Even her small paintings give us a huge visual sweep of the openness & beauty of her beloved region. Take a moment to dream a little dream with us thru the beauty and talent these & all our artists have created.
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….
