Welcome to Ozark Folkways

Featured

Located in historic (and historically funky!) Winslow, Ozark Folkways is where the art of today meets the craft traditions of generations past; and music, food, fun and family reach across generations to bring people together.

Apart from the everyday offerings of art and crafts, we have a number of special events coming up over the next few months. There’s bound to be something for you …

Opening Reception for Artists David Scott Smith & Paula Smith

smithSaturday, December 10, 7pm – 9pm

Join us in the Connie Wright Gallery for an evening with Arkansas artists David Scott Smith and Paula Smith. David’s work relies heavily on objects and textures that inspire him, and these are usually found in nature or combined with natural elements. David explore ideas of excess and consumption, but also beauty, which he believe can be found in abundance, even in the tragedy of our global predicament.

Paula describes her work this way: “Making pots is much more than just a job, it’s a way of life. It’s food and family. Handmade dishes and friends. Pottery is something real, a real connection to a real person. I make pottery because I believe in that connection. I believe in farmers markets and small coffee shops. I believe in baking bread, and gathering fresh eggs. And I bring all of this when I sit down at the wheel to make pots. My studio is located in my back yard, along with my huge garden and my chickens.”

This show is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served (donations always appreciated). This show will be on exhibit through December.
