Folk artists have demonstrated their craft at the festival since its inception in 1974. From basket weavers to calligraphers, pyzancky egg makers to paper cutters, these artists turn ordinary materials into meaningful utilitarian or decorative art. This year, we experiment with a platform to expand the market for folk and traditional artists, giving you the opportunity to purchase their artwork online. As select folk artists share their expressions of material culture, you can support their livelihood in these uncertain economic times. Artists receive 100% of the sales revenue.

Visit the Folk Arts Marketplace online starting October 1.
