Folk Art part ll
This is a continuation of our visit to the Folk Art exhibit at The Amon Carter Museum. I love this town (Ft. Worth, Texas), they have such a wonderful cultural district, and it is actually within walking distance from our new home.
Above is another selection from the 100 piece collection of Folk Art, on loan from the American Folk Art Museum in New York City. Many of you may recognize this artist...who I think symbolizes folk art. Any guesses?
Well, if you guessed Grandma Moses you would be correct. Anna Mary Robertson (1860-1961), affectionately called Grandma Moses, believe it or not, didn't start paining in earnest until she was 78 yrs. old!
Tomorrow a folk art painting that hangs where hundreds of people see it every day..
How could one persons life be so different from winter to summer? Well stick around and see. I live in a cosmopolitan city half of the year and then head to a tiny town in the mountains the other half.....a place full of interesting people, beautiful scenery, wild animals......and great adventures!
