Folk Art in the South

 Michael Banks "Two Figures with Balloon"
According to Steve Slotin, "[folk] art is produced by untrained people who draw on their culture and experiences in an isolated world; made with a true, untutored, creative passion.  It's raw, expressive, unconventional, nonconforming, genuine and truly original.  Artistically acclaimed acceptance has caused this art form to blossom."
