Just Folk

          Just Folk is the only west coast gallery that deals with both American antique and 20thc Outsider art.   Founded in 2007, by east coast natives and former television producers, Marcy Carsey (The Cosby Show, That 70’s Show, & Rosanne) and Susan Baerwald (V. P. of Mini-Series and Novels for Television at NBC) who have shared a lifelong and personal passion for collecting unique American Folk art.  
 The Just Folk collection is the embodiment of this passion and has become known by museums, dealers and collectors as a comprehensive source for some of the finest iconic examples of American Folk art and Outsider Art.
We concentrate on handmade objects whose aesthetic design transcends their original utilitarian purpose and allows us to see them as works of art. We have an attraction to ordinary objects that are invested with extraordinary individuality. Often these pieces tell stories about seeing the world in different perspectives. 
Often, they express inner worlds that have no other way of being revealed.

Folk art can be both antique and contemporary. Iconic Americana images include trade signs, weathervanes and whirlygigs, quilts, textiles and sculpture. Modern folk art includes works that are visionary, outsider, idiosyncratic, untrained, raw, naïve and self-taught. All of the folk art we have collected contains an energy that flows from the life experiences of the creator, expressed in individual, unique forms. Many of them make us smile. Some make us cry. The best of them provoke an emotional response that makes us want to live with them, whether they were created for utilitarian purpose, aesthetic appeal or as an expression of inner lives.
