OVERVIEW

Emmy and Academy Award winning sculptor Wesley Wofford works from his private studio in the National Forest of North Carolina. Wofford Sculpture Studio LLC, a 2,300 sq. ft. facility, is nestled with his home on a mountaintop in Cashiers. The studio is always filled with sculptures at various stages of completion, the large commissions occupying the same space as the portraits, commissions, gallery pieces, and maquette studies for submissions.  He continuously participates in both indoor and outdoor exhibitions throughout the country.   Wesley organized a sculpture park within The Village Green near his home, which he was the curator of a Permanent Collection and three Biennial Invitational Exhibitions.  In 2015 he curated an Inaugural Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition at The Bascom in Highlands, NC and was awarded Signature Status with The Portrait Society of America.
