Joe Adams Outsider and Folk-art Collection

My friend Joe "The Spam" Adams has collected folk-art for about as long as I have been selling art. I met Joe about 19 years ago and when he attended the Howard Smith Collection auction. That was the first major collection offered to the public. Many pieces in this auction are from Joe's private collection. It was exciting getting into his storage and seeing items that have been off the market for many years from various collections that we have sold. He bought the best Willey Masseys from the Smith Collection, art from the Gitter-Yellen Collection, the Oh Appalachia Collection, Warren and Sylvia Lowe Collection, the James Smith Pearce Collection and many more. This will be an in-house and live internet auction(www.liveauctioneers.com). Both phone and absentee bids will also be accepted. The artist list is at www.auctionauction.com
