I am fortunate to live on what for more than a hundred years was a working dairy farm located in a quiet rural area of Vermont away form the hurried pace of the city.
I am surrounded by many pets that still have the freedom to roam and explore. I love antiques, historic architecture and the history they represent. 

They tell of a simpler uncomplicated time. With the modernization of many historic homes many of the old original windows have been lost for newer more efficient. These wonderful pieces of history are discarded and sent to the local landfill. For every one that has been saved, I clean and restore  it without removing the many layers of multi colored paint that has sometimes crackled from age over the years.

This window with its many layers, panes and old glass is the focal part of my art. On the back I reverse paint primitive folk art scenes that depict a simpler time. 

"My hope is when you view my world through this window you sense those earlier times and appreciate having saved a small piece of history".

All my window art is artist signed. Though sometimes similar, no two pieces are the same each one is original. Although most of the window art displayed has sold variations can be commissioned. Inquire about custom window art  at jackie@buckhollow.com
Thanks for looking.

THE FOLK ART OF GARY YOST

The folk art of Gary Yost has won praise,  acclaim and smiles for more than two decades.  Irreverent,  humorous and sometimes outrageous, Gary’s work has been in the White House  (George Sr.),  the North Carolina Governor’s Mansion, the Smithsonian and numerous folk art museums.

For several years, Gary and I have had a long distance friendship and he sells me a large portion of his entire output.  Currently not in the best of health,  Gary can  produce only on a very limited basis.  

I am most pleased to  be able to obtain what few I can and make these available for  both Vermonter’s and our welcome visitors. Each piece is hand carved and painted from wood he finds on his frequent travels through the Florida woods and is initialed “GY”  on the back of the neck.

                                           

After looking at our site feel free to write, call, fax or email us with any further questions or to make reservations.
