You are invited to join more than one hundred folk artists who paint, pot, carve, sew, and recycle “junk” into fantastic creations. Many of these people are truly national treasures, whose works tell important stories! Many are untrained, making work from their hearts resonating with color, form, fun and creativity. This is the perfect opportunity to add to your collection—or begin a wonderful journey into the amazing world of folk art.
