It’s the most wonderful time of the year, y’all! The American Folk Art elves have been hard at work for many months gathering spirited artwork to honor this season of light. Whether you are choosing a gift or choosing to gift yourself, there is something for everyone in “A Few of Our Favorite Things”.

Ready to make your season bright, we will debut new artwork from 15 our artists! Wood carvings from renowned Kentucky carvers Lonnie & Twyla Money; new framed woodblock prints from Kent Ambler; hand-carved songbirds from Ivy Billiot; new paintings from Cornbread, Ellie Ali, & Michael Banks; strikingly carved wood reliefs from Doug Frati, pottery from Carl Block, Wayne Hewell, & Ben J. North, and sculptural assemblages from the one and only Buddy Snipe! Liz Sullivan, whose artwork will be featured on the US Capitol Christmas Tree this year, will share a selection of seasonal vignette paintings, small enough to be affixed to a garland or bough.

Looking to gift a unique tree ornament this year? We’ve got you covered!

Hand-carved and painted ‘critter’ ornaments from Lonnie & Twyla Money will be back in the gallery, a continuation of one of the American Folk’s longest holiday traditions! Carl Block and Wayne Hewell have been busy creating ‘dinky’ face jugs, just the right size to hang from a bough. And, as a new addition this year, our very own North Carolina potter Ben J. North has created a selection of wood-fired ornaments patterned with intricately carved lines and decorations… a gorgeous addition to any tree and lovely enough to remain in your home all year round.

To say the least, we’ll be celebrating the spirit of the season in our traditionally unconventional way!

“A Few of Our Favorite Things” opens on our website and in the gallery on Black Friday, November 26th at 11AM. There will be a full hour to preview the show before sales will begin promptly at noon!

A First Friday reception will be held on December 2nd from 5- 8PM.

Join us in whatever way you can, as we celebrate the culmination of another year and prepare to welcome the coming year with joy in our hearts!
