2nd Annual Face Jug Show!

In the Gallery, April 3-23


Living...Southern...Cultural...Icons

Highly anticipated by collectors, American Folk Art has assembled a wild and wonderful collection of regional face jugs for its second annual Face Jug Show. Coincidence or not, the show opens on April Fool’s Day this year. Lore has it that April Fool’s day sprang out of calenderic changes of the 16th – 17th centuries… with traditions linking this time of year to merriment and tomfoolery dating all the way back to antiquity. With our own notion of tomfoolery….merriment….general mischief and mayhem…we bring you American Folk Art’s Second Annual Face Jug Show.



With help from the likes of the most creative and renowned face jug potters of our region; Kim Ellington, Stacy Lambert, A.V. Smith, Walter Fleming, Wayne Hewell, Mike Ball, Steve Abee and Fred Johnston, we are delighted to celebrate and honor the tradition of Face Jugs.


Mischief awaits you here.



We are open seven days a week,
Mon through Sat 10-6, and Sun 12-5.
Thanks for visiting our site, and we hope to see you soon.
