Armistead Peeler

Armistead Peeler painted with his wife Parlee for some 35 years until her death in 2004. Known as a colorful character around his hometown of Grand Junction, TN, Peeler drove a truck with his paintings hanging on it. A curious intermingling of the figural and the abstract sets Peeler's work apart from many other folk artists of his generation. He died in 2005.
