The FolkArt Gallery-folk art from around the world
Explore the villages and market places of the far corners of the world for folk art with the FolkArt Gallery. Our collection of folk art includes African tribal masks, ceremonial and ritual artifacts, baskets, textiles, containers and other objects of daily life from around the world. There are captivating retablos from Peru, and whimsical woodcarvings from Mexico. The jewelry cases are brimming with old silver and semiprecious jewels and custom designed adornments with components from every continent on earth as well as art-to-wear jewelry and folk art of contemporary North American craftspeople.
Whether it is
a graceful ceramic pot made high in the mountains of Peru, a rich
and vibrant kilim uncovered deep in the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul,
or a crudely hammered prayer box from Northern Africa, folk arts and
crafts offer a window into the lives, spirits, and souls of the people
who create them.
Sharing this common ground of beauty, art, and celebration in folk
art allows us to learn more about other peoples, and in some way,
more about ourselves.
Our goal is to bring you these treasures, lovingly hand-crafted
by artisans around the world and to create a bridge to other cultures,
traditions, and ways of life through their folk art.
If you have a particular interest that you don't see on our website, please feel free to call us.
Follow our blog at Folk Art Chronicles and learn more about folk art, about what goes on behind the scenes at the FolkArt Gallery and about our travels to find new artisans and crafts from around the world.
hope you'll stop in soon and say 'hello' and enjoy a
little bit of folk and ethnic art with us. It's truly
'food for the soul'.
