Grovewood Gallery and Grovewood Studios were established in 1992 by the Blomberg and Patton families of Asheville. Located adjacent to the Omni Grove Park Inn, both the gallery and the studios are housed in the historic Biltmore Industries complex. Biltmore Industries originated as a craft school in the early part of the 19th century to better the lives of the economically deprived youth of the Appalachian region. Today, Grovewood continues Biltmore Industries' tradition of supporting local craftspeople.
The In Crowd will feature works in a variety of styles & mediums by Chris Abell, Kathleen Doyle, Melissa Engler, Daniel Essig, Russell Gale,
