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.

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!
