Asheville is one of the top arts destinations in the Southeast, featuring hundreds of art galleries and working art studios. The Craft Trails of Western North Carolina wind their way through the region along scenic byways. Downtown, visitors can stop by 30-plus galleries, or embark on one of the many Art Walks sponsored by the Downtown Asheville Art District throughout the year.
Just minutes away, the River Arts District located along the French Broad River is home to an eclectic mix of contemporary and traditional artists. Studio strolls are offered twice a year, but visitors are welcome year-round to the funky, distinctive collection of studios housed in renovated warehouses. The Folk Art Center, on the Blue Ridge Parkway, showcases their work along with ongoing exhibits and demonstrations.
