The next Slotin Folk Art Auction is this weekend in Buford, Georgia – but for those of us who can’t be there in person, the auction is also run online in real-time through eBay (I’ve bid on their auctions before through eBay, and it really is easy).
One of the things in this catalog is a collection from Howard Finster’s Paradise Gardens – old signs, cutouts, etc. from the garden that are being sold to benefit Paradise Gardens Park and Museum Inc (501c3):

As usual, there are a lot of nice folk pottery pieces including face jugs by Lanier and Cheever Meaders, art by Sam Doyle, Sister Gertrude Morgan, Purvis Young, Howard Finster, Jimmy Lee Sudduth, B.F. Perkins, Mary T. Smith, Mose T, Son Thomas, and…think of somebody in that genre and they’re probably included. A complete listing of all the auction lots is here.
