What is 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.
