Nostalgic Folk Art was born in 2004. I came up with Nostalgic Folk Art name for my paper mache figures because I love the older things that remind me of my childhood and of innocent times. They are figures of folks both childish and impish and I love vintage folk art so putting nostalgic with folk art was/is a perfect and fitting name for my lil figures and business.

Thank you for taking the time to visit!

And when your done visiting here, I'd love for you to check out my work on my etsy shop,

The Best to you always!

Nostalgic Folk Art for Bow WoW Bash

Its no secret i LOVE Dogs! I'd like to say Boston Terriers are my favorite dogs but really any precious face i'm looking at is my favorite!

Bowersock Gallery is having a charity event to help raise money for Pilgrim Bark Park up in their neck of the woods.

Here are some babies I have and am sending for the wonderful function and here is their press release,

At Bowersock Gallery
Friday, September 16, 7 to 9 p.m.

Buy a puppy painting and take a chance on Marc Jacobs’ apparel, while sampling treats from Bayside Betsy’s and Truro Vineyards – sounds like the “Bow Wow Bash (at Bowersock)” and the place to be on September 16.

“It’s fine art, fine items and so much more, but most importantly a way to support the Pilgrim Bark Park,” says Steve Bowersock, Bowersock Gallery co owner. “There’s a lot of Provincetown/Cape business coming together to help one of our own. That pretty much says town party.”

For it’s part the Bowersock Gallery has asked its national and regionally renowned artists to submit small works of dogs, or that reference dogs for this special occasion. It will also open its latest exhibit “Fall at Bowersock,” a salon style show featuring the entire stable. Bowersock will donate 10-percent from all evening sales to the town’s dog park.

In addition 40 local businesses will pitch in to make the event’s silent auction a success.

Among the items up for bid: Louis Vuitton luggage; Marc Jacobs’ attire direct from the runway, and a Cape Air commuter book, (valued at $999). There are gift certificate for numerous eateries including The Red Inn Restaurant, Jimmy’s Hideaway and Central House Bar and Grill. The broad selection of certificate include ones for Art’s Dune Tour, numerous flowers shops, cafes, animal services, grocery stories, bakery’s and liquor stores.

The event will be catered by Provincetown’s Bayside Betsy’s, and wine will be provided by Truro Vineyards.

“This is the second time Bowersock, along with many of the participating businesses, have put together an event to support a local nonprofit. Last event was an outstanding night of entertainment, which raised over $6000 for P-town’s The Soup Kitchen,” says co owner Michael Senger. “This is not an event to be missed. Not only is it one of the season’s highlights, but it supports a project with great community value.”

so please if your able support your local or any charity you can. I know the Gallery will raise money and have fun doing so.

My First Written Review/Kinda like your first dollar, I treasure this dearly

"Carol Roll is a relative new-comer, creating folk art for four years, now. Her paper mache figures reflect significant talent. At first glance, her angels, people, mermaids, and animals may appear cute and dear. At closer look, they are sophisticated, with detailed, expressive faces, each unique. Roll's work is anything but mass produced. It's the real deal. "
