We searched this out after reading some of the TripAdvisor reviews, and were not disappointed. This is a large gallery, showcasing an excellent variety of art mediums and styles, much of it craft-based. Spend 2 hours here, even if you don't have a chance to purchase now. You will be inspired. If one is serious about possible purchase(s) without a specific medium or artist in mind, 3-4 hrs will be needed.

This is my favorite art gallery in Asheville. Buying a piece of art is a very personal process, even when you are looking directly at it in person. It is especially difficult during this time of social distancing and the closure of the gallery to the public. However, the gallery staff has made the process of viewing the artists’ work on its website very easy. Browse all artists, if there is a piece in which you are interested, just save it to your “collection,” and type the staff a note. I received a telephone call from Michael Manes, we set up a FaceTime chat, in which he had hung the pieces in which I was interested in one place on the wall, told me about each piece and the artist, pointed out interesting features of each piece, and answered any questions I had. Easy peezy, we completed a purchase, and he wrapped and delivered the piece to me at my driveway (or will ship to you). They are flexible in this time, if you want to discuss the piece after you actually see it in person. The staff and service could not be any better.

Buying art is about deciding to bring something into our home that cultivates a feeling of wonder, joy, interest, excitement. Strolling past the gallery, a piece drew us in. We approached the desk to ask about it after taking a closer look. One person, never looked up from her phone, one did begrudgingly . Our questions were answered curtly but no further information or details were offered. Our excitement quickly left us. As we looked around the gallery, we were surprised to see more art by the artist that caught our eye. Surprised this wasn’t mentioned, we were distracted by the treatment we received and decided to move along. As we made our way out, we were informed that they would be closing shortly at 5 pm. So, rather than just informing us of this when we came in, we were treated in an unwelcoming way in hopes that we would just leave. I did express that I was surprised by how we were which was answered with a sarcastic and exaggerated “have a great day”. Made our way down to Eagle street where we were greeted, presented with menus and ordered cocktails. I noted the time 5:03. The treatment is a disservice to the artists who trust you to encourage and support the positive energy that they bring in their work. We are mindful that everyone wants to get home at the end of the day and would have happily returned another time or ensured that we left by closing.

We are so sorry for the negative experience. Unfortunately, we do not have a passenger elevator, and our building is not handicap accessible at this time. However, we are taking the steps to install a passenger elevator and hope to have one the next time you visit.
