17th annual Fearrington Folk Art Show on February 23-24

Pittsboro, NC – The annual Fearrington 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. It’s back in town on Saturday, February 23 through Sunday, February 24.

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.

Come out and 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.

Entry is $5 at the door.

Celebrate the show by joining other folk art lovers at the Collector’s Preview on Friday, February 22 from 7-9 pm. Buy art, have conversations with the artists about their work, and enjoy a drink and light hors d’oeurves. It’s a great way to welcome the start of one of our favorite weekends of the year.

Tickets are $35 per person and include entry for the whole weekend (because only one evening isn’t nearly enough).
