Woodturning Design June 2011 IssueWelcome to Alan Carter Studio. After more than forty years as a professional artist, I've made the very difficult decision to retire from the art world. I've had a terrific run and have truly loved what I've dedicated my life to- creating beautiful (hopefully) works of art. I've been fortunate to see my work placed in a vast number of private, corporate, and public collections, whether it be paintings, furniture, or sculpture. My success has been the result of hard work, long hours, and a continuing search for new ideas. Just like any other profession, of course; nothing special about that. Being self employed, though, does take its toll and I find that I have other interests and hobbies I want to explore. They say that artists never truly retire, and I expect to bring whatever creative talents I have to these more personal pursuits.

One consequence of this decision is that I have a number of pieces in my remaining inventory. Since I won't be producing any more new work, I'm offering these pieces at a substantial discount. All work on my website is now half price, and I will include free shipping to the lower 48.

So check them out and If you're interested in purchasing one of them or would like more information, email me at apcarter@sbcglobal.net or call me at 630-390-8821.
