SOLD  Time To Do My Chores


A folk art carving by Art Gallant from Dieppe, New Brunswick. Gallant is a well documented folk artist who created pieces with a story. His work is in major collections and in the Museum of Civilisation. Gallant's pieces are invariably signed and titled with a humourous saying (see dtailed photo for this). This carving is of a very determined lady off to do her chores with her dog. Take a look at the front view - there is no doubt she means business. Folk art should make you smile - this piece works. Overall dimensions length 8" by 6" h and 3 1/2" d.
