Huffman Gifts of Contemporary Southern Folk Art
April 7–September 13, 2021
Allen and Barry Huffman have been collecting contemporary southern folk art for the past 40 years. Within their collection are subsets of folk art, including self-taught artists driven to share their messages, crafts for the tourist market, and Southern pottery. The guiding principle evident throughout their collection and the generous donation of contemporary southern folk art that they've gifted to the Asheville Art Museum is the story told by each of these artists through their artworks.
