More than two decades after his death in 1992, Dickenson County visual artist Fred Jerome Carter from Clintwood, Virginia is finally getting some much-deserved recognition in the art world. Carter was a prolific self-taught painter and wood sculptor who operated the Cumberland Museum in his hometown where he displayed cultural artifacts from the region as well as his own artwork. This presentation by Jack Wright will look at Carter’s art works with a view of beginning to place them into the contexts of their origins and what makes these works mostly “Outsider Art” or “Visionary Art.” The influence of his mentors and friends will also be discussed.
