Jasper52 Americana, Folk & Outsider Art auction slated for Aug. 26

A woman’s work is never done, and rarely receives the appreciation it is due. Even when the name of the artist is lost to history, antique American textiles – be they quilts or samplers or something else entirely – are almost always the product of the labor of women or girls. Hundreds of hours of toil, guided by who knows how many months and years’ worth of practice, shape and define the finished piece.

On August 26, starting at 6 pm Eastern time, Jasper52 will present a sale of Americana, Folk Art, and Outsider Art. Once again, it is curated by Clifford Wallach, an expert in tramp art, folk art, and Americana.

Early 20th century quilt, est. $1,400-$1,600
