Right next to Gallery on First in Sanford you will find another great art gallery, Jeanine Taylor Folk Art. Jeanine Taylor is promoting contemporary folk artists at her gallery in order to bring the public closer to Southern folk art and its importance to our heritage. With more than 20 featured artists and 8 working artist studios inside the gallery, you will certainly find some very unique pieces. I am loving the variety and colors and really appreciate that we have such a great place in Sanford! So when you’re asking for things to do during the day in Sanford, stroll down First Street and visit Jeanine Taylor’s folk art gallery. Make sure to bring the kids and show them what Southern folk art is about.
An upcoming event that I found on Jeanine’s web site is set for April 17-19, 2009 as follows (quote):
Date: April 17-19, 2009
Time: Gallery Hours, Friday and Saturday 10a -6p, Sunday 12 – 5p
Location: 211 East First Street, Sanford Historic District
Details: Back for a second year, this short term event (dubbed the Inventory Renewal Show) follows tax day by a hair. So that we can make room for summer inventory, Jeanine will hand pick a variety of art to be offered at special prices. On Friday, pieces selected for the show will be 10% off; on Saturday 20% off; and Sunday, 30% off.
