Artist Studios

Outside of our scheduled tour dates listed below, studio visits are by appointment only.
Inquiries for visits are welcome and can be made through Grovewood Gallery.

Artistic Tradition

Grovewood Village is home to 10 resident artists, whose studios are located directly next door to Grovewood Gallery. These workspaces were originally built to house the weaving operations of Biltmore Industries, an Arts and Crafts enterprise that played a significant role in the Appalachian Craft Revival during the early 20th century. Today, our resident artists – inspired by an earlier craft force – create jewelry, pottery, sculpture and more, in the same workshops where the famed Biltmore Handwoven Homespun was once made.

Open Studio Tours

Every third Saturday of the month during May – October, our resident artists open up their studios to the public, allowing visitors to gain insight into their creative process and view their most recent works. Tours are free and self-guided and will take place from 11am – 4pm on all 2019 dates: May 18, June 15, July 20, August 17, September 21, and October 19.

Please Note

Many of our resident artists spend time away at shows and working on commissions. If you really want to see a particular artist, contact us before you visit to make sure their studio is going to be open.
