2017 Coming Home

2017 Coming Home

Welcome the “Coming Home” show.

To purchase a piece of art, simply call American Folk: 828-281-2134

We asked our artist what ‘Coming Home’ conjures up? Is it about where you were born, your children’s outstretched arms? certain faces around a table, a wagging tail at the end of a day? perhaps mountains off in the distance.  In all it’s varieties, and with enhancing YOUR home in mind, we have collected pottery and paintings, sculpture and woodblock prints to illuminate the myriad ways home is interpreted by the artists we represent.

Potters: Shawn Ireland, Michel Bayne, Rosa & Winton Eugene, Matt Halliburton, Caroline Cercone, Kate Johnston

Painters: Chris Bruno, Ellen Langford, Liz Sullivan, Lucy Hunnicutt & Michael Banks

Woodblock Prints: Kent Ambler

Sculpture: James ‘Buddy’ Snipe.

Do visit our individual artist’s pages for additional works of art not created for this show.
