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. The juices are definitely flowing and I'm very excited about the ideas I have for upcoming pieces.

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 have 3 pieces in the New Hope Arts Center's 15th annual sculpture exhibit in New Hope, PA, a suburb of Philadelphia. The show runs through June 19th, 2016. For more info and to see a very nice article that prominately mentions my work, go to newhopearts.org.

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
