Eighty-six carvings by North Carolina artist Leroy Person will be on view at North Carolina Wesleyan College’s Four Sisters Gallery of Self-Taught Visionary Art through December 10, 2011. Ranging from Person’s small scale twig figures to his full size chairs, the works included in this exhibition are from the gallery’s permanent collection of self-taught art. I suspect this is a wonderful opportunity to see the range of Person’s output, and to appreciate how well he worked in different scales.
