MANKO American Folk Art offers a very choice selection of American folk art to include folk and naive paintings, select smalls, appropriate accessories, folk sculpture and the very best selection of 19th century weathervanes in all of New England.
Ken and Ida Manko have dealt in art and antiques full time for over 30 years and have been joined in the business by their daughter Kate. Kate is a 2004 graduate of Syracuse University with a degree in Communications and Rhetorical Studies. Kate grew up with folk art, and is a collector herself. Kate has also had 3 folk art exhibits including one going on now at the Brick Store Museum in Kennebunk, Maine.
MANKO American Folk Art has always been known for the personal attention that we give to our customers. We have worked with or sold to almost every major buyer and collector of American folk art in the country, to include architects, corporations, decorators, and even several museums worldwide. The Manko’s own or have sold pieces pictured in over 30 books published on art and antiques.
MANKO American Folk Art maintains a gallery at our home in Moody, Maine that is open by appointment or invitation only for viewing approximately 30 – 50 pieces, all at the highest level. Moody is located half way between Ogunquit and Wells Maine and is only 15-20 minutes from Kennebunk and Kennebunkport. The gallery is closed in the winter, but we can be reached at home year round to answer questions or to help you with your specific needs.
Ken, Ida, and Kate are all licensed appraisers of American folk art, and do “item” consultation, auction representation, interior design consultation, and even related photography. Our prices are competitive with others at our knowledge level.
All dealings are strictly confidential. We welcome your call or visit, you won’t be disappointed!
