Folks on the Mountain

Folk Mountain at The Foxfire Museum and Heritage Center in Mountain City, GA, July 26th, 2014

Folk On The Mountain is a celebration of Folk Art-the immensely varied works of homegrown, not-formally-trained artists from around the southeastern United States who produce amazing hand-made creations in mediums including paint, pottery, sculpture, textiles, and more. Folk Art comes in every shape and description, from useful pottery decorated with clay grapes or dogwood blossoms to humorous or frightening face jugs; from small birds carved from found wood to life-sized sculptures of wood or metal that can represent animals or people (real or imagined); from paintings on old roofing tin of chickens or lizards or other animals to. The possibilities are endless, limited only by the imagination of the artist and the materials they have on hand.

Visitors are sure to see the styles of Folk Art they know and love and are equally as sure to encounter things they never imagined could exist before seeing it. Tour the Foxfire Museum, take in (or take home) some great Folk Art, and enjoy some time On The Mountain!

Hours are 9:00am-5:00pm. Admission cost is the regular Museum rate-$6.00 for adults, $3 for ages 7-10, and free for children 6 and under.
