Next Show: BOWLS, BOWLS, BOWLS ! Opens on-line Tues, October 2, at 11am
Liz Sullivan lives a few miles up the road from us here at American Folk. For those of you that navigate our little corner of the world, you know that Biltmore Avenue, where we are located, becomes Broadway a couple of blocks north. Once passed the ‘expressway’ Broadway becomes Merrimon Avenue. Liz attended Claxton Elementary School which fronts Merrimon. She and her husband Pete met while attending UNC-Asheville and lived at the apartments on the corner of Merrimon and Edgewood. The Barn they have run their antiques business out of is off Weaverville Highway..what Merrimon Ave. becomes just north of the Asheville city limits. She and Pete have done a whole lot of living within sight of this roadway. I wonder if my business was a couple of blocks either side of Biltmore, if our paths would have crossed. Liz paints her/our world, infused with her generous imagination. Cannot imagine this gallery without her paintings and energy. She came on in a couple of days ago, and brought us a couple of new and wonderful paintings, take a look : http://www.amerifolk.com/artists/liz-sullivan/

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….
