Williamsburg's Place for Studio Space and Folk Art

Need a place to create your art? No space at home? Too much mess or too many distractions?

By design, we always have professional studio space available for artists of all levels - six days a week ... and we'll even keep the studio open late if you need us to ...

Our open studio concept is perfect for most media and any level of artistic skill.

Most of our artists are local but we also have fun regional art and great offerings of vintage folk art such as Rev. Howard Finster and even a few modern master surprises such as Max Papart.

We're all About the Art


Sometimes a name doesn't tell it all ...

Colonial Folk Art Studio & Gallery is the premire location in Williamsburg to find locally and regionally crafted pieces of functional and aesthetic art for sale.

We also support the local art community and visitors through classes in our studio and an open studio.

Our classes are for aspiring artists and experts alike. Each class is geared toward the level and capability of the students.

At the same time, our open studio provides the opportunity for artists at any level to use our equipment and space as their own.

As we say: "Make a mess in our studio, not yours!" This provides the opportunity for artists at any level to come into our studio, use our potters' wheels, slab roller, extruder, glazes, kilns, and other art equipment with the guidance of a professional artist to help when needed.

No other location in Williamsburg offers this opportunity!

Come inside & browse ...

Thanks to the wonders of Google and technology, we are happy to offer a look at our studio and gallery. Although things always look TOTALLY different with art finding new homes, it's still fun to look around!!!

The holidays bring a special magic to Williamsburg that blankets our small city.

It's also special for us at Colonial Folk Art. Not only do we get to dress up the gallery in Christmas cheer but we also get all of our family home from school.

Come visit us during this special season and take in the joy that is the holidays and the expression of that joy expressed by local artists.
