BUFORD, Ga. – A changing of the guard among folk art collectors is responsible for making an array of early, museum-worthy works available for the first time at auction. That’s readily apparent in the catalog for Slotin Folk Art Auction’s Fall Self-Taught Art Masterpiece Sale, to be held November 13-14. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.
