Slotin Folk Art presents Folk Fest, its annual folk art show and sale, Fri.-Sat., Aug. 16-18, at the North Atlanta Trade Center in Norcross. The event gathers 100 exhibitors from across the country and features all manner of folk art: self-taught art, outsider art, Southern folk pottery, and anonymous antique folk art. Country crafts it ain't. We are talking highly personal art: religiously inspired paintings, crude tin cut-outs, wood-relief carvings, and environmental sculpture gardens created from refuse and other found objects.
