Pure Folk:Celebrating the Folk Art Society of America

Barbara Archer Gallery

This exhibition shows a collection of artists who delight in one central theme: folk art! From the website:

“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.”

“Material Girls” by Contemporary Black Women Artists

Spelman College Museum of Fine Art

“The often debated distinction between craft and fine art is irrelevant in “Material Girls: Contemporary Black Women Artists.” The seven artists on view — Chakaia Booker, Sonya Clark, Maya Freelon Asante, Maren Hassinger, Martha Jackson Jarvis, Joyce J. Scott and Renée Stout — embrace both, sacrificing neither concept nor craftsmanship.

The women all hail from the East Coast, primarily Baltimore and Washington, and all but Clark and Freelon Asante were born before 1958. All have educations in fine art and familial ties to craft traditions. Though their choices of materials vary widely, their works all touch on personal history, heritage, craft, recycling and tradition — and the recycling of traditions”
