Sheila and I have been seriously collecting southern outsider folk art since the early 90’s. Our house is like a museum…art in every room…every wall…and some ceilings. Nothing is for sale…it’s just for our enjoyment.
You don’t need a decorator with a master plan. Our theory is: if YOU like it…display it
If your friends like it, fine.…if NOT, that’s their problem..not yours. Don’t let ‘em discourage you.
Remember….art doesn’t have to match the drapes.
We've been selling on the web since 2000….we don’t have a brick and mortar store. We have found that there aren’t enough serious folk art collectors in this area. But, we want to get folks around here to appreciate outsider folk art. After being exposed…they’ll find that the genre just grows on you!
Our online gallery has two specialities
BLUES MUSIC RELATED FOLK ART
SOUTHERN OUTSIDER FOLK ART
FOLKS ASK…WHAT SHOULD I BUY?
Our advice…..never buy with the idea that it’s just a good investment. Don’t buy a piece of art because you think it’ll go up in value. Collect what YOU like…and enjoy it…IF….it goes up in value…THAT’S A BONUS.
STARTING A COLLECTION?
If you’re just starting or want to add to your collection…click our “art for sale” button and check what we currently have available. We have lots of AFFORDABLE ART…and are adding more every couple weeks. Please “bookmark” us…and check back often.
IF YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT THE SUBJECT
We want to share our passion and knowledge. Check our “Artist Friends” pages. We will be posting regular informative updates about:
Atists bios (past & present).
Folk Art environments
Folk Art Museums
Shows and Auctions where you can view and buy folk art.
We’re always looking for UNKNOWN and EMERGING FOLK ARTISTS
If you…or someone you know, makes folk art (not crafts). We might be able to help you get distribution. Our percentage of each sale is low…we are not greedy like some of the big galleries. Making money is not our main goal…it’s to help emerging artists get recognition. Send a short bio, jpegs of your work and prices and we’ll see if we can help.
We've been exhibiting at SLOTIN'S FOLK FEST in ATLANTA since 2004
Here's a couple pix of last year's booth
