Gullah Living a FineFolk Gallery

Welcome to Samantha Claar's Gullah Living - In 2008 I became acquainted with Gullah-Geechee people from the past. They visited and demanded that I paint what they were showing me. They told stories that were meant to be given life on canvas.

My wife and I had the pleasure of visiting Savannah from Birmingham, and meeting you at a gallery on the riverfront in mid May 2016. You caught us admiring your work and shared with us some history of the Gullah people. From that moment we both sporadically mentioned how much we really enjoyed your art. After speaking about it so much, we found your website and chose two pieces for our home. We have been married for seven years and are both 31 years old, and this is the first art that we have purchased from a known artist. 

Thank you very much for talking a few moments out of your day to speak with us, sharing a glimpse Savannah's history, and exposing us to your beautiful artwork of the Gullah people. We really do appreciate the chance to get to meet you and to show our family and friends your beautiful work.

Many thanks!
