Established in 1992, Grovewood Studios, located directly next door to Grovewood Gallery, is a group of workspaces occupied by 11 artists who work in a variety of mediums. The studios and gallery are part of a 6 building complex that was constructed in 1917 by The Grove Park Inn’s architect, Fred Loring Seely, to house 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.
Art lovers, architectural enthusiasts, and local history buffs are encouraged to go behind-the-scenes and take a free, self-guided tour of Grovewood Studios. 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.
Please note: If you really want to see a particular artist, please call the gallery before you visit to make sure their studio is open.
