PURE FOLK: Celebrating the Folk Art Society of America at Barbara Archer Gallery

exhibition / September 14 – November 10, 2012

opening reception / Friday, September 14, 7-9pm

Barbara Archer Gallery welcomes FASA to Atlanta during their 25th Annual Conference

PURE FOLK showcases the work of 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.
