Fred Carter Folk Art Collection

In Spring 2018, the late Fred Carter's daughters agreed to loan UVa-Wise and the Center for Appalachian Studies their father's extensive collection of folk art.  Carter, a Clintwood artist, produced these pieces after his fiftieth birthday and has become one of the nation's most intriguing folk artists.  This Spring, CAS intern Jessica Lowe will work to catalog the individual pieces and develop interpretive files on each.
