Fall Studio Stroll – Feeding the Body and Soul
November 12th and 13th from 10am to 5pm
The Artists of Asheville’s River Arts District open their doors for a full weekend in the Fall Studio Stroll, welcoming the public to see and collect amazing art in their studios and galleries. There is no better time to meet our artists and watch live demonstrations!
This Stroll will “feed the body and soul,” as the Artists have again teamed up with Ingles Markets and MANNA FoodBank in a Food Drive to collect non-perishable food items for our area’s needy families. There will be a dozen areas throughout the 22 participating buildings where you can donate these items. Last year’s food drive collected over 700lbs of food to help fight hunger in the Western North Carolina region. Our goal this year is 1,000lbs (a half ton!)
We are a diverse group of more than 180 working artists in studios and galleries housed in 22 former factories and historical buildings nestled along a mile-long stretch of the French Broad River. Many studios, showrooms, and galleries are open every day, all year round. You can discover works in paint, pencil, pottery, metal, fiber, paper, glass, wax, and more!
Getting to the River Arts District is easy (Here’s a map!). Take advantage of ample parking and hop aboard one of our free trolleys running throughout the Studio Stroll Weekend.
Come for the opportunity to take home that special artistic treasure made and sold by the artists you meet here. Start your collection today!
