Why not be "Rapt in the Spirit" of Christmas this year by giving an unusual piece of folk art? The Anton Haardt Gallery has some great "Astral Portraits" by Sybil Gibson and a colorful vintage Mose Tolliver Tico Bird. (In Anton's book on Mose Tolliver she explains that the "Tico Bird" is a nickname for the complex and beautiful notes of the Mockingbird, who sings in the wee hours of the morning.)
The Anton Haardt Gallery's OFFBEAT CHRISTMAS at 2858 Magazine Street is continuing through the New Year. You'll find the perfect "offbeat" gifts, like a Santa painted by Annie Tolliver, red and green glitter crosses painted by L.W. Crawford, a vintage watermelon painted by Mose Tolliver, or even a folk art t-shirt by Sudduth or B.F. Perkins is available.
Whether it be a miniature ethereal portrait of a yellow-tinted blonde by Sybil Gibson or a faded blue vintage Tolliver Tico Bird, you'll find X-Mas gift treasures on discarded materials such as grocery bags and slate...and all the paintings are direct, powerful, and from the heart.
Folk art gifts are an original and unique yuletide treasure!
