If you’re in Savannah and want a mix of both “non-traditional” local works and authentic folk pieces, try Roots Up Gallery, owned by Leslie Lovell and Francis Allen. They have a great eye for artists who express fanciful imagery and unconventional perspectives. You’ll also find some of the classics like Clementine Hunter, Jimmy Lee Sudduth and my old buddy R. A. Miller. You may even run into some of the local artists during the Second Saturday Art Walk.
“Our goal is to share a different style of art that is both approachable and affordable. It is also wonderful to share the many stories behind the creation of each piece,” says Leslie Lovell.
