Rock Rose Gallery is proud to introduce "The Folk Tree" art collection curated by founder/owner Rocky Behr who passed away in 2016. Rock Rose is committed to continuing her legacy, offering an incredibly beautiful array of authentic Mexican and Latin American folk art hand picked by "Rocky, who was an intrepid traveler, writer, collector and staunch supporter of artists and artisans,  an important pillar in folk art in the country.” Friend, Victor Solis  ​In addition to art, we will provide folk art workshops and conversations with local and guest artists, becoming a welcoming destination for visiting artists, students and community to enjoy and study all that comes with creating Folk Art.
