FOLCWALD Gallery of Sculptural Art is located in one of the most beautiful places in New England, the Pioneer Valley. Situated in the town of Amherst, FOLCWALD is surrounded by one of the highest concentrations of artists and craftspeople in the United States. The Pioneer Valley is also home to esteemed colleges, renowned festivals, and world class museums that display everything from prehistoric art to modern craft (Jo Landers, Pioneer Valley Info.) The area’s academic community and historic interest in the creative arts makes Amherst and the surrounding community an important destination in the art world. The name of the gallery originates from the 8th century Foucault Family when the name was first derived from the ancient Germanic ‘folc | wald’ and translates to “Ruler of the People.” We've given Folcwald's definition a 21st century reinterpretation, turning the original meaning on its head to indicate it is the people and their creativity that rule, and ultimately allows culture and society to thrive. As such, FOLCWALD Gallery of Sculptural Art’s core mission is to serve and support the vibrant and ever growing art presence of Western Massachusetts by showcasing new interpretations of timeless beauty to the people of the valley and visitors alike. FOLCWALD Gallery of Sculptural Art proudly sells D.E.F. Diamonds and hosts thematic juried exhibitions of sculptural jewelry and art throughout the year. The gallery is honored to offer the annual Radakovich 21st Century Award competition, with awards given to artists whose pivotal work exemplifies creative excellence.

This exceptional Torah crown on view at the MET reminded us this Hanukkah of the amazing Judaica work of the late Ilya Schor and the Schor family whose contributions to the arts (sculpture, painting, jewelry, Judaica, historian) leave one in awe...

In honor of Hanukkah, enjoy this Torah crown on view in gallery 508. Exceptional for its size and precious material, the crown is a rare survival of 18th-century Italian silver and a testimony to the artistic virtuosity of goldsmithing in Venice. http://met.org/1BMgcXi

Maker: Andrea Zambelli "L'Honnesta" (Italian, active 1732–1772) | Torah crown | ca. 1740–50
