Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Happy Valentine's Day, St. Patricks Day, and Easter.........whew it has been a while........but worth the wait......I have been working on a grand adventure...in between the business of daily living, art, and the winery. I am proud to announce that I will be carrying on the tradition of an established show, the American Folk Art Festival, founded by Gail Laird, of Halliday House Antiques in Napa, and her partners, Rob Kowalski, and Sue Moodie. This new, yet established, and well received show will feature dealers of antique folk art, as well as the handmade folk art of contemporary folk artists. The artists will focus on fall themes....some with a bit of emphasis on the folk art of Halloween.
To learn more about the show...Please go to our newly established website, which is and will continue to be a work in progress, by a click of the American Folk Art Festival sidebar box. I will also be giving you updates here as well. It is an exciting concept to have antique folk art, and the folk art of contemporary folk artists side by side. I am sure you will recognize the names of some of your favorite artists, and dealers with a few more yet to be added to the list.
Looking forward to having you make plans to join us on September 8th, at the Madonna Estate winery in Napa California, from 9am until 3pm....prepare to be amazed at the one-of-a-kind display of folk antiques and folk art!
