Main Street Gallery

 

Our folk art collection is a result of over 30 years spent visiting self-taught artists wherever we find them — in isolated, rural communities to inner- city neighborhoods.  Meeting  these uniquely talented people, has been inspiring. What these artists create is art from the heart, without preconceived ideas of what art should be. They work with what is at hand like sheet metal, cast-lumber, house paint, or cardboard.  Often, the need to create is born from religious experiences (hence the term Visionary), or sometimes it can be the result of personal trauma. Whatever the catalyst, the end result is art that is refreshingly direct, powerful, and without pretense.
