Specialty:African beliefs and symbols; African diaspora; African images on clay objects
Biography:Carter's research and creative production is focused on exploration of beliefs and symbols common to the African diaspora. He is manipulating and juxtaposing these images on traditional objects (drums, platters) constructed in clay. Influenced by culturally diverse sources, Carter instructs in clay hand building, clay wheel throwing and advanced ceramics. His works have been shown at 13 solo exhibitions at such locations as: Herron School of Art, Indianapolis; Jahn Arts Gallery, Minneapolis; National Afro-American Museum and Cultural Center, Wilberforce, OH; National Museum of American Art (Smithsonian). Carter's publication includes "A Second Chance for Texans: Remedial Education in Two-Year Colleges" (Office of Educational Research and Improvement, U.S. Dept. of Education, co-author).
