NEW: Vaillancourt Folk Art Celebrates Fall Season with Open House

Thursday, September 12, 2013

 

Vaillancourt Folk Art will showcase new offerings for 2014 at Friday's Fall Opening.

While it may still feel like Indian Summer outside, Friday brings a full preview of all the best Fall holiday decor at Vaillancourt Folk Art's annual Fall Opening on Friday, September 13th, from 5pm-8pm, in Sutton.

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.
