DULUTH – (submitted by The Hudgens Center)  The Hudgens Center has an exciting new Folk Art exhibit opening this month, featuring a wide range of colorful and creative work.  “We Are Folk: Exploring Traditions in Southern Folk Art” opens on Tuesday, March 8, and will be on view through May 21.  This Southern folk art and Georgia pottery exhibition was co-curated by Steve Slotin and Michael A. Crocker. 

There will be an Opening Reception for the “We Are Folk” exhibit on Thursday, March 10, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., featuring an informal Gallery Talk by co-curators Slotin and Crocker at 7:00 p.m.  The reception is free and open to the public.

The exhibit showcases works by Southern folk artists and potters, such as a collection of works by the historically significant North Georgia Meaders family potters, including Cheever, Arie and Lanier Meaders face jugs on loan from Crocker.  Works on loan from several local collections include such significant artists as Howard Finster and Minnie Evans as well as several 'Memory Paintings' from Georgia's own Mattie Lou O'Kelley and Louisiana's Clementine Hunter.

The Hudgens is proud to announce a partnership with Creative Enterprises to showcase outsider art by their clients in the Gift Shop.  Creative Enterprises is an area non-profit that assists individuals with disabilities in developing an optimum level of social, vocational and economic independence in their community, and we are excited to have the opportunity to offer such beautiful and wonderfully creative artwork in our shop.
