“Pure Folk” at Barbara Archer

Barbara Archer Gallery welcomes the Folk Art Society of America to Atlanta during their 25th annual conference.

They’ll showcase work by self-taught greats like Linda Anderson, George Andrews, Beverly Buchanan, Herman Bridgers, David Butler, Ronald Lockett, James Harold Jennings, J.B. Murry, Nellie Mae Rowe, Jimmy Sudduth, Mose Tolliver and more.

A special tribute to the late Mr. Imagination will also be featured.

Over 25 years have passed since contemporary folk art exploded on the art scene, leaving us with a plethora of faux folk art imitators and a shortage of meaningful work by the early, authentic masters in this genre.

We savor the opportunity to reintroduce such significant artists known for their wit, ingenuity and an original approach to self expression – pure and direct without inhibition.

Through Nov. 10.
