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.
