Connect with local makers! Join us on Saturday, May 21 from 11am – 4pm for our Open Studio Art Tour. During this event, participating artists will 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.

Grovewood Village is home to 8 working artist studios, occupied by 10 local makers. 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.

Please Note: Participating artists will be listed on this page two weeks prior to the event date. The artist studios are located in the same building as the Biltmore Industries Homespun Museum, directly next door to Grovewood Gallery. Free parking is available on site. If you have questions about this event, contact Grovewood Gallery at (828) 253-7651 or email us at
