As described by the organizers, the annual Folk-Art Show features the work of self-taught artists who are deeply influenced by the spirit of folk art, raw vision, naïve art, primitivism and outsider art. You’ll see whimsical paintings, sculptures, pottery and all sorts of work to get your imagination flowing. Fearrington has garnered a reputation for bringing together an eclectic group of outsider artists who represent some of the most interesting work to be found in the folk art world. We hope you’ll experience it for yourself!

All sales proceeds benefit the artists directly. Fearrington takes no commission from the artists, nor does Fearrington charge a booth fee to the artists selected for the show.
