Welcome to Appalachian Arts Studio

Appalachian Arts Studio was created to encourage and nurture the appreciation and participation of the arts to all who enter its doors. Through woodcarving and sculpture we provide a journey through the creative process. It is our sincere desire at the Appalachian Arts Studio to nurture the individual creative soul through artistic expression. Chainsaw carving and chainsaw carving events are the mainstream of art expression at the studio. We also offer classes for those who would like to learn this art form.

Our studio is also home to Mudslide Pottery. High fired ceramics with unique and designs. Classes in pottery are also offered at the studio.

Our gallery, studio, workshops and events happen in and around our home atop Boot Jack Mountain, in scenic Ridgway, Pennsylvania. Appalachian Arts events like the Chainsaw Carvers Rendezvous is an international affair that attracts artists and visitors nation wide and beyond.

Appalachian Arts Studio develops programs that advocate the importance of the arts in education and in the community for everyone from students to seniors.
