NYF SHOP AND GALLERY

SHOP AND GALLERY

The NYF Gallery of Folk Art is a consignment gallery that features the handmade work of over 65 folk artists. We display the craft of wood carvers, quilters, fiber artists, Iroquois (Haudenosaunee) beadworkers and basketmakers, stone carvers, metal workers, furniture makers, and many more. Along with offering these traditional arts and crafts, we place each piece of artwork in the context of the cultural environment it came from by providing educational materials about the artist and their community.

Come to visit us and take a look around! Many of our folk art items are for sale. For more information, please contact NYF or stop by the Gallery. Browsers are welcome.
