Woodturning Design June 2011 IssueWelcome to Alan Carter Studio. After many years in the Chicago area, we've relocated to the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. We're situated close to Asheville, a vibrant cultural mecca for artists of all persuasions.

Having successfully survived the rigors of a long distance move and the building of our home and studio, I'm now fully engaged in the development and creation of new work. Ideas abound and I'm discovering ever changing, often surprising, ways to present wood art.

I've redesigned my website somewhat to make it easier to navigate and showcase my latest efforts. If you're interested in purchasing one of my pieces or would like more information, email me at apcarter@sbcglobal.net or call me at 630-390-8821.

BIG NEWS! I'm very excited to announce that I will be exhibiting my work at SOFA Chicago, Nov. 3-6. SOFA is one of the premier 3D art shows in the world and it's an honor to be part of it. I'm represented by Xylem Gallery, based in California.

You can also check out my 3 woodturning videos on Youtube, thanks to the very cool gang at thegeekgroup in Grand Rapids, MI. You can see them at
