CALL FOR EMERGING ARTISTS:
Los Gatos Art Haus seeks collaborators for our upcoming Winter pop-up show.

Folk art. Textile art. Woodblock prints. Self-taught art.
Do you finger paint? We wanna see it!
To us, folk art is art of the everyday. In contrast to fine art, folk art is primarily utilitarian and decorative [rather than purely aesthetic]. Folk Art is characterized by a naive style, in which traditional rules of proportion and perspective are not employed.

(I'll post a link in the Discussion to the Museum of International Folk Art's extremely eloquent description of FOLK ART-- along with a series of examples from the Art Historical canon.
But honestly… If you're interested, I highly encourate you to apply!)
