Pittsboro, NC - One of Fearrington Village's most popular community events of the year will take place on February 22 and & 23 from 10 am to 5 pm. More than 35 folk artists from throughout the South will convene at the big barn at Fearrington Village once again in 2014. They’ll turn every square foot of the structure into exhibition space for marvelous outsider art.

This annual event is an exhibition and sale of widely diverse artwork from self-taught Southern artists who are deeply influenced by the spirit of folk art, naïve art, primitivism and outsider art. Featured artwork includes whimsical paintings, fantastical robots, sculptures, pottery and more.

Fearrington has garnered a reputation for bringing together a diverse group of artists who represent some of the best, most unique work to be found in the outsider art world. We hope you’ll experience it for yourself!

All sales proceeds benefit the artists directly; Fearrington takes no commission from the artists, nor does Fearrington charge a booth fee to the artists selected for the show. Ticket prices are just $5 per person at the door.
