"Accidental Odyssey..." Roger Manley
ILLUSTRATED LECTURE: "Accidental Odyssey—Self-Taught Artists of the South"
Roger Manley, Director, Gregg Museum of Art & Design, NC State University
Every town seems to have at least one—someone who has covered his house with hubcaps or flattened-out beer cans, or hung hundreds of dolls and plush toys in the trees; a man who has glued spoons or mirrors all over his car or the woman who went over the top with the Christmas lights and then left the holiday decorations up. These are the kind of places you go when friends from elsewhere come for a visit and you want to amaze them with something unique and really local.
Starting in 1970 when he was just 18, Roger Manley, currently director of NC State's Gregg Museum of Art & Design, began visiting hundreds of people like this—some call them visionaries or outsiders; he calls them self-taught artists—and he will talk about his accidental odyssey and the startling discoveries it led to. The author of books that include "Weird Carolinas", "Signs and Wonders", and "The End is Near!", Manley will lead the audience on a series of strange encounters with folks who are offbeat, unusual, or downright wonderful.
Purchase seats on CAM’s website, by phone and at CAM’s Visitor Services desk CAM Members: $12.00, Non-Members: 17.00 and Students with valid ID: $8.00
Weyerhaeuser Reception Hall. Held in conjunction with CAM's current exhibition "Minnie, Clyde, Annie, Vollis" on view through Sept. 22, 2019.
