About Folk Art

Folk Art is created by ordinary folks who express what they are feeling in their hearts

by creating imaginative things.

Often times the expressions they create are

extremely exuberant, witty or humorous.

Often times these artists take ordinary objects

like scrap metal, tree stumps, or discarded glass

and turn them into inventive new creations.

Often times they create things from fond memories

or a personal vision towards life.

Often times these artists create things for themselves

and no one else.

Many times their art never finds its way into a gallery.

Often times you’ll find Folk Art in unexpected places.

Often times Folk artists are self-taught

and have no formal art training.

All Folk Art has a distinctive feeling

and charm that only comes from

creating from the heart.
