SHANGO GALLERY spent the day at the Arlington Highlands shopping center for the 1st Annual Art in the Park festival hosted by f6 Gallery. Shango was one of the many participants, with over 100 artists, musicians, and vendors in attendance.
Art in the Park highlighted our Folk Art collection which currently consists of work from over 60 nationally recognized Outsider, Naïve, and Folk artists.
Our booth featured our Folk Art collection with a life size hand-painted playhouse adorned with reproductions of Sammy Lander’s “Orange Football player”, Mose Tolliver’s “Woman with Gray Topcoat”. Families were welcome to have their picture taken while tagging artistic creations of their own inside the play house.
Shango also featured pocket-sized narrative driven portraits by Ann Grgich, religious theme paintings by Lucas Lorenzo and sons of a remote crafting village in Guerrero, Mexico, R.A Miller’s “U.S Flag” on tin, and two large hand painted doors by the self-taught artist Willie Jinks. “HOT WE GOT!” exclaimed Jinks in his bold painting on wood.
