I visit this gallery every time we come to Asheville. It is my favorite, & you can drop in while walking downtown. There are three levels, & my favorite is upstairs. I think they have unusual things, & a wide variety of art. They represent over a hundred regional artists.

If you are a serious purchaser of art, this is the place for you. Quality art tastefully displayed. This place isn't crammed with stuff like so many galleries. Well worth a visit.

We had a hard time finding Blue Spiral, but enjoyed browsing the art collection once we did. Nice escape from the unusually hot weather in Asheville.

This is our favorite gallery in Asheville. Three floors of wonderful art, a variety of styles and media. The staff is professional, knowledgable, and always accommodating. This is how a gallery should be run!

It is such a treat to stroll through three floors of beautifully curated contemporary art. Every artist there is worth the time it takes to consider closely. The staff is friendly, decidedly not pushy, and extremely knowledgable and helpful. This place is a wonderful, relaxing treat for the soul.

This is a high end gallery on par with many you would find in NY, Chicago, or LA - without the snobbery.

There are a number of galleries in downtown Asheville, and this was our clear favorite. It is a large gallery featuring works predominantly by local artists, some of whom have achieved international acclaim. Interestingly, the works displayed are in a variety of media, including impressive glass sculptures and wood sculptures.

I really enjoyed a short visit here to see the artwork of Hannah Skoonberg. The art is very well displayed throughout the different sections giving visitors time to really enjoy the pieces individually.
