Grovewood Studios is a group of workspaces occupied by 11 artists who work in a variety of mediums. Established in 1992, Grovewood Studios is located right next door to the gallery. The building was constructed in 1917 by the Grove Park Inn's architect, Fred Loring Seely, and originally housed Biltmore Industries, an arts and crafts enterprise once renowned for its hand-loomed fabrics. Today, our resident artists create jewelry, pottery, sculpture, furniture and more, in the same workshops where Biltmore Homespun was once created.
Private appointments for studio visits are welcome throughout the year. Many of our studio artists spend time away at shows and working on commissions, therefore, open hours in studios vary depending on the artists.
Open Studios - Take a free, self-guided tour of the artist studios on the Grovewood grounds. Open studios presents an opportunity for visitors to interact with professional artists, see artwork at the source, and expose them to the rich talent that Asheville has to offer.
If you really want to see a particular artist, please call the gallery before you visit to make sure their studio is open.
