A wide range of mediums and price ranges. I often like Blue Spiral better than the Asheville Museum of Art just up the street!

I am an art fanatic and an artist and this gallery is fabulous. It's 3 floors of seriously quality art work. I am pretty picky but this place ranks at the top.

One of the earliest promoters of the rich local talent. Many who started are well known. Don't expect the predictable, art is creative in every way. A great place to see dynamic work.

An amazing collection of fine art that celebrates various media. While a lot is expensive, thee are more affordable pieces of art that one can buy. Whatever the price, it is all worth it!

Perhaps the best all around gallery in AVL. Noted for quality regional art, crafts and photography Nationally recognized artists and regular exhiibitions make it a must visit.Staff are helpful and low key

Consistently the best collection of local artists work in Asheville. All mediums represented here and in exceptional space. Perfectly placed and hung for maximum impact with very thoughtful lighting. A joy any time you have a few minutes downtown to be enthralled.

We spent about an hour making our way through all 3 floors of this expansive gallery. The art is top notch, and the atmosphere is beautiful and inviting. We enjoyed the glass and woodwork as well as the paintings. This is a very fine gallery and a lovely place to check out on a cold Asheville winter day!

ALWAYS the best art of the area displayed impeccably in a beautiful gallery setting. All price ranges offered for fine art. Bathrooms seem to always be a mess though.
