This blog changed from a daily blog to a blog to celebrate the folk art of Kerras Jeffery, as well as his reproduction furniture and other projects. His studio & shop closed in 2017 following his passing.

A Retrospective of the Folk Art of Kerras Jeffery

 A ‘Retrospective of the Folk Art of Kerras Jeffery’ will be on display in the main gallery starting April 16th, 2024. Whether it’s the double-headed pig carving, the Canada Mountie beaver, or the bear sculpture that guards the back door, the artist was known for his creative, playful spirit. Kerras Trent Jeffery (1966-2017) was one of the leading folk artists of his generation in eastern Canada. Born in Prince Edward Island, Kerras began his working career as a laborer, but gradually moved into folk art. He operated Back Road Folk Art in Alma, P.E.I. for 20 years. All of his creations were made from repurposed materials, and his playful sculptures continue to be collected across Canada and internationally.

The exhibit will be on display from April 16th - May 17, 2023 in the main gallery at Eptek Art & Culture Centre.
