The shop features many fine regional Folk Artist with a wide range of subject matter and styles. The unique aspect of Folk Keeper Gallery is that Charlie Frye who is an internationally collected Folk Artist is in residence year-round and Susan Frye who is an up and coming Folk artist is also in residence. Don’t be surprised if you see Charlie with a brush in his hand when you visit.
While Charlie’s primary focus is on creating more great Folk Art, Susan balances her time between creating art, curating the antiques and running the back end of the business. It’s a beautiful artistic and business balance that makes this team so effective.
