2018 Sharing The Journey

2018 Sharing The Journey

Continuing through August 22, 2018

When you see something you would like to know more about or purchase, SIMPLY CALL THE GALLERY: 828-281-2134.

Who accompanies you along the path of your life, who knows you deeply and stays by your side? Companionship is what we all desire out of life whether it be found in another person, a pet, or nature. The artists represented at American Folk Art, 64 Biltmore Ave, are known for opening a window for us into their lives through narratives in their artwork.

A collection of artworks has been carefully selected for the show, all of which honor our ties to others. Expressions of a desire for community, intimacy and loyalty. These interpretations include biblical references, family ties, the relationships we share with our pets and the natural world. Along with new paintings by Trés Taylor, Liz Sullivan, Ellie Ali, Jim Gary Phillips, Lucy Hunnicutt, Michael Banks & Darrell Loy Scott, there is a selection of sculptural forms by James A. ‘Buddy’ Snipe, Lonnie & Twyla Money, and Marion Kaminkow. Such cool pottery pieces by Michael Ball, too…a fun and multifarious selection….Please come share the Journey with our American Folk Family.

Other pieces by all of these artists [except Darrell Loy Scott] can be found on their individual gallery pages here on our website; don’t miss those!
