Opening Reception: Saturday, June 18th from 6pm to 9pm
The gallery will be filled with the flavor of Lousiana for our summer show, Gumbo! Jeanine has invited a roux of talented folk artists including Lorainne Gendron and father/son duo Pat & Andre Juneau. We're also pleased to introduce the work of New Orleans costume designer and artist Lois Simbach.
The Saturday evening opening reception will coincide with the Sanford Art Walk. Gumbo will be served, the soundtrack will be lively, and the libations will quench a summer thirst. In a nod to a hot summer tradition in the streets of NOLA, we'll be wearing white linen. Join us! The show runs from June 18th to July 17th.
We're celebrating one of Florida's matriarchs of folk art on Sunday June 26. Please join us in wishing Ruby Williams a happy birthday - we're not asking which one! She will be bringing fresh art for the afternoon's festivities.
Drop by between 2 and 4pm. Remarks from Ruby and Jeanine at 3pm, followed by an informal round of "open mic" for admirers to share tributes, well wishes, or special memories. We'll be serving cornbread and collard greens as that is one of Ruby's favorites.
Jeanine and the gallery have been featured in the fall 2016 issue of Where Woman Create!
To celebrate this national recognition, Jeanine Taylor Folk Art will be hosting a magazine signing and release party on Satuday, August 6, 1-3pm.
Copies of the magazine will be available for purchase and refreshments will be served. This is a free event.
Metal Man: New Work by Chris Beck
Opening reception: Saturday, August 20th
Folk artist Chris Beck likes to describe his work in metal as "making something from nothing." He transforms old metal from tin roofs into three dimensional wall hangings that resemble clothing and other accessories like men's straw hats and women's purses. The show will be on view September 17, coinciding with the Sanford Art Walk from 6-9pm.
Show runs through September 25, 2016.
