Grovewood Village Studio Tour

Asheville art tour- artists and their work at Grovewood Village.

Connect with local artists! The Bi-Annual Grovewood Village Studio Tour will be held on September 14 and 15 from 12 to 5pm.

This is a free, self-guided, explore-at-your-own-pace tour. There is no ticket to buy.

This is your chance to peek into the studios of our resident artists, gain insight into their creative process, and view their most recent works. Additionally, these creatives will have pieces available for purchase at the adjacent Grovewood Gallery, which will extend a 10% discount on nearly all items. Metro Wines will also be on-site serving complimentary wine.

Guests looking to round out their experience can enjoy brunch next door at ELDR and visit the Biltmore Industries Homespun Museum and the Estes-Winn Antique Car Museum, also located in Grovewood Village.

Grovewood Village is home to 8 artist studios and a yoga studio. 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.

Local textile designer and handweaver Deanna Lynch will be in our Homespun Museum (located in the same building as the artist studios) demonstrating how to operate an antique four-harness loom that was used in Biltmore Industries’ heyday.

Please Note

The artist studios are located in the same building as the Biltmore Industries Homespun Museum, directly next door to Grovewood Gallery. If you have questions about this event, contact Grovewood Gallery at (828) 253-7651 or email us at
