Edited by: Christian Answini and H. Brent Souder | Fine Art Department


Have you ever wanted to own a piece of history that tells a story and captures the essence of a bygone era? Look no further than the captivating world of contemporary folk art collecting, where every piece is a unique treasure waiting to be discovered.  


Folk art offers a glimpse into the past, showcasing the creativity and craftsmanship of everyday people. From intricate wood carvings to hand-painted pottery, each piece is a testament to the skill and passion of its creator. Take, for example, the stunning Strawser Pennsylvania folk art carved and painted hen with chicks (Lot 2002) or the charming Kohr Pennsylvania folk art carving of birds on a tree (Lot 2003). These pieces not only demonstrate the artist's talent but also evoke a sense of nostalgia and appreciation for simpler times.



Collecting folk art allows you to curate a one-of-a-kind collection that reflects your personal style and interests. Whether you're drawn to whimsical animal figures, traditional pottery, or rustic woodwork, there's a folk art niche for everyone. The variety of pieces available, such as the delightful Strawser folk art carved and painted mounted horseman figure (Lot 2021) or the intriguing Redware growler featuring George and Martha Washington (Lot 2025), ensures that your collection will be as diverse as it is captivating.



Investing in folk art not only enriches your home decor but also preserves a valuable piece of cultural heritage. By adding folk art to your collection or inventory, you become a custodian of history, helping to ensure that these treasures are appreciated and passed down for generations to come. Pieces like the charming watercolor scherenschnitte framed art (Lot 2030) or the stunning Arlene Fisher framed oil of Main St., Marietta, PA (Lot 2043) are not only visually appealing but also carry with them the stories and traditions of the communities they represent.
