Thanks to the addition of Alford “AD” Carter to the Lalo Advisory Group and an informal working relationship with Home Repair Central of Front Royal, Lalo will have a new artwork and work station in downtown Front Royal on North Royal Avenue. AD Carter, who is principal of the well-regarded home repair service center, is no stranger to Art. His late brother, Big Al Carter, was a very well-known and highly regarded artist. Big Al’s works have been shown in museums and galleries throughout the United States, as well as in many private fine art collections. He is written up in books on leading black artists in America, and is especially well known in the Washington, DC, metro region.
AD Carter is also well known throughout the Washington metro area as well as in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. He is President of the Warren-Page Chapter of the NAACP. “It’s hard to think of anyone who knows more people or who has better contacts, than AD Carter,” said Charles “Chips” Lickson, Lalo’s President.
The principal Front Royal Studio Bee Gallery remains at the Jennerations Hair Studio, Royal Plaza. Member artists’ works may also be seen at the Daily Grind in Front Royal, at the Luray Gallery, part of the Art Gallery at the Warehouse and online. Lalo is also planning its first Washington metro area gallery at the Falls Church Distillery this winter.
