  • A childhood relived

    Artisan Sally Cammack remembers a quieter, calmer lifestyle from her early years in Stearns, Ky.

    It is there that she was unknowingly developing images that would later appear on her popular hand-painted gourds.

    Cammack describes her designs as folk art or what she laughingly calls “an unschooled form of art.”

    Whether schooled or unschooled, Cammack’s gourds and her talent are in high demand.

    One day last week I was at the market buying bananas, broccoli slaw and Vidalia onions and when the kid bagging my groceries asked, “How are you today?” I told him, “I’m so hungry I could eat my arm.”
