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.

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.

SOFA Chicago 2016 is now history and I'm happy to report that it was a successful event for me. I made sales and generated a great deal of interest in my work. Xylem Gallery did a great job displaying my pieces and I'm looking forward to participating again next year.

No rest just yet. I will be participating in a group show at the Folk Art Center in Asheville, beginning Nov. 19 and running through early February. The Folk Art Center is on the Blue Ridge Parkway just north of Asheville.

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
