The Robert Cargo Folk Art Gallery has been in continuous operation since 1984. After twenty years in the original location in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, we moved  to our new Philadelphia Main Line location in January 2004. 

As we approach our 30th Anniversary year in 2014, we are transitioning our gallery operations and are not currently offering items for sale. Please check back with us in January.

And The Great Dragon Was Cast Out (Revelation 12:7) by Myrtice West

Alabama artist Myrtice West died on April 12, 2010, at the age of 86.   Her personal life was filled with difficulties and trials, but her art became her salvation and her testimony to the world.  A deeply religious woman, she began painting in 1952 after her second miscarriage, at which point she said all she wanted to do was to lie on the floor of her house and paint Jesus.  She experienced divine inspiration to create art from then on.   She is perhaps best known for a series of 13 large, visionary paintings based on the Book of Revelation. See the excellent book entitled Wonders to Behold, based on that series of paintings.  For more of her story, see her recent obituary

We have several large paintings on canvas by Myrtice West in our gallery inventory.  Please inquire.
