About Mike's Art Truck
Mike’s Art Truck is a “virtual” folk art gallery that recently moved to the Triangle from Atlanta, Georgia. Hillsborough residents Greg & Karen Mack promote and sell the works of a wide range of self-taught artists from their website and through cooperation with other galleries and businesses. They are excited about being a part of the community and they look forward to bringing some great folk art to the area. Named in honor of their cat Mike, there is no real truck, only an imaginary one.
