American Folk Art presents: Home for the Holidays!
November 27th thru December 30, 2020
64 Biltmore Ave, Downtown Asheville, 28801
With many customs ruled out during this holiday season, one tradition is holding true; Home for the Holidays! American Folk Art will be re-imagining what that means for this season. At our core, we are a gallery that celebrates using our imagination over expectation or norm and this has been the ultimate year for upending tradition & embracing our creative powers, generous spirits, and grace.
Beginning November 27th and continuing until New Year's Eve, American Folk will present new painting, sculpture, and pottery by its 35 different artists, highlighting several of our beloved artists whose work will add joy to homes this holiday and beyond.
Dining in this season? Wouldn't it be lovely to treat yourself like an honored guest and add a Shawn Ireland animal-ware candle holder to your table? Shawn's pottery combines sculpture and function in a vastly creative way, making a wonderful companion to any meal.
At a time when traveling is fraught, let a Tres Taylor painting take you on a much-needed journey into your imagination.
Kent Ambler's wood-block prints are like a window into a landscape filled with natural beauty & pleasure; Kent reminds us to observe the rejuvenating powers of nature.
Joe Engel, a new artist represented at American Folk, explores the intersection between the existing world and an insightful imaginary one.
We invite you to celebrate how your creative strength has allowed you to navigate this unimaginable year by trying something new, staying safe, and giving thanks. American Folk is aware of the uncertainty of the times we are living in, and just like during this spring's lock down, we will keep our website and Facebook page current with all relevant information.
Let’s create new and meaningful traditions together.
