It's on the satellite campus of TN Tech. where artists are there in residence. The gallery is always changing and has local art including glass blowing, pottery to woodworking. We usually buy Christmas and birthday gifts here. The items are high quality and reasonable.

I could spend a lot of time here, it is a place that smells like wood and kinda like a old Hardware store when I was a kid;-) The craftsmen are very friendly and encourage involvement in the different crafts. ;-) Make this a stop if your in the area for sure;-)

This school is an icon and the works of arts and crafts are truly impressive. The campus is an enclave of American master artists and their students with displays that are exceptional.

ACC has some of the best crafts training in the South, and its shop is filled with museum-quality work. I always come away wanting more than I can afford. Great place.

In addition to a very interesting gallery, the scenery alone is worth the visit. Just off the drive which enters the property, is a scenic overlook. Don't miss this... More
