Art of Folk – Artists Who Rock

There is an art exhibit at my local  library that showcases some of the most amazing art. Created by artists who make their art and are: “artists of all ages whose lives are challenged by developmental disabilities, pervasive mental illness, and/or traumatic brain injury.”


Like all art, the making of this art is not really about the finished product, it is about the process.  For these artists, the process allows them to find so many positive personal qualities like self esteem, joy, creative spirit and more.

The name of the artist and name of the piece is below each image.

These artists bring their unique creativity and talents to the world, and it is such a joy to see what they create and to support them.  Some of the art work has been sold.  I bought one piece, and have bought others through the years.  They are all great treasures.
