NEW: Vaillancourt Folk Art Celebrates Fall Season with Open House
Thursday, September 12, 2013
Enjoy a sneak peek at this season's newly introduced fall chalkware figurines, peruse the gallery and be inspired to decorate for the fall season, Halloween, and Thanksgiving while enjoying cheese and wine and conversing with other collectors from the region.
Collectors will want a look at Vaillancourt's new pieces for 2014: Snowtober and Ghouly Girl. There will be a limited number of both pieces available Friday evening.
Vaillancourt Folk Art
Known for reviving the lost Victorian art form of chalkware, Vaillancourt Folk Art has adapted the process of creating Chalkware Santas—among other chalkware and ornament works of art—with their own contemporary method.
Operating in their Sutton, Massachusetts studios since 1984, Judi Vaillancourt was the first to pour solid chalkware into antique chocolate moulds and paint the resulting three-dimensional canvas with oil paints—rivaling the detail and quality of any fine art medium.
Available in department stores, museum gift shops, catalogs and small mom-and-pop shops around the country, Vaillancourt Folk Art operates with one goal in mind: to start your family’s tradition by creating that one special gift that will be handed down for generations. The Sutton Studio, Museum, and gallery is open seven days a week and is always decorated with the splendor of the holidays—tours are offered daily.
