The influence of art is apparent no matter where you are in Asheville, but the creative heart of the city lives within the River Arts District, just west of downtown, along the French Broad River. You may have driven through the district, or even popped into a few studios — but there is so much more than meets the eye. In fact, it’s arguably one of the most extensive and diverse art districts in the world.
You may be wondering, How is that possible? The district is only a mile long, and half a mile wide. But in this small area, there are hundreds of artists and studios specializing in all sorts of media. And that number can be a little overwhelming if you don’t know where to start.
That’s where Asheville Art Studio Tours comes in.
