Every year The Barn fills with extraordinary self-taught Southern artists and their work
Mark your calendars now for one of our most popular community events of the year! More than 35 folk artists from throughout the South will convene at the big Barn at Fearrington Village once again. They’ll turn every square foot of the structure into exhibition space for marvelous outsider art.
You will not want to miss the special Collector’s Preview offering the collector the opportunity to visit and have more in-depth conversations with the artists and buy their work, while enjoying wine and hors d’oeuvres provided by The Fearrington House.
This annual event is an exhibition and sale of widely diverse artwork from self-taught Southern artists who are deeply influenced by the spirit of folk art, naïve art, primitivism and outsider art. Featured artwork includes whimsical paintings, fantastical robots, sculptures, pottery and more.
Fearrington has garnered a reputation for bringing together a diverse group of artists who represent some of the best, most unique work to be found in the outsider 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. Ticket prices are just $5 per person at the door.
The Fearrington Folk Art Show offers visitors a rare opportunity to purchase art directly from dozens of the Southeast’s finest folk artists.
