The Folk Art Center was our last stop out of town and something I’d been looking forward to. Unfortunately, it was a short and uncomfortable visit because of our COVID concerns. There were just too many people in the permanent exhibit to maintain any type of social distancing, so after just a couple minutes we returned downstairs to the shop. It was also too crowded for social distancing so we just did one walkthrough. While quickly browsing, we ran into one customer without any mask at all, and another with his mask around his nose. I’m pregnant so that was more than enough risk for me and I waited outside. But my husband managed to quickly purchase a beautiful framed sketch for a great price. Social distancing and mask compliance just aren’t a priority at the folk art center. I certainly sympathize with the staff who didn’t sign up to argue all day with people. But I’m also disappointed to not have had more time admiring the art and browsing the shop since COVID is something we’re taking seriously.

As an artist I was very impressed with the craftsmanship of the area's artists over the years. I learned so much about the history of the area and how the crafts evolved. Well designed galleries. The Gift Shop is fabulous- even better than the Met in New York! Saw a lovely demo of sun printing outside. This is a must for all visitors to the area!

My favorite part of this was seeing so many different styles of art in one place. I enjoyed being able to purchase art that supported the community as well.

Beautiful folk art and craft exhibits in a beautiful setting right off the Blue Ridge Parkway. We especially enjoyed the gorgeous furniture pieces. The gate made in Ozone, Tn from chestnut wood is a real treasure and so evocative of Appalachian art.
