This place specializes in the finest artisan work from primarily local artists. After visiting many different galleries in Asheville, the Grovewood Gallery is without question our favorite.

It takes a little effort to get to this gallery. You enter by the Grove Park Inn driveway, go to the bottom of the drive and turn left toward the hotel. Then you turn right and down to the bottom of that hill...oh, just follow the signs at that point. ;) There's the auto museum in the former mill, the... More

Hi Laura - hopefully we were worth the effort to find! Our location has its challenges, and we are working towards getting clearer/better signage (especially for parking). Also, the restaurant next door to the gallery is still under construction but is slated to open by the end of November. The name of the restaurant will be Golden Fleece - Slow... More

This was my absolute favorite gallery during my visit to Asheville. After leaving the parking lot, you walk through a contemporary sculpture garden (loved the dog hanging out of the truck window!) We then walked through a forest of wind machine sculptures designed by Lyman Whitaker. On a windy day, the movement of kinetic wind sculptures can be hypmotizing. Moving... More

This used to be my go-to gallery in Asheville, with many artists in many mediums, both traditional and contemporary. I never visit it any more because it seems to have fewer artists and no contemporary work at all. I am not into traditional craft, so this no longer interests me. Too bad.

I own one of Lyman Whitakers' wind sculptures so it was an absolute delight to see the 'forest' of them that is here! The antique car museum was a nice surprise as well. We almost didn't see this place but I caught a glimpse of the wind sculptures from the corner window of dining room. Ask for directions and find... More

We're so happy you discovered Grovewood! I assume that you were staying at The Omni Grove Park Inn, adjacent to us. It's an easy walk, but they also offer a free shuttle service to our gallery (great for when it's raining). Hopefully you visited our sister gallery as well, Gallery of the Mountains, located in the Sammons Wing of the... More

If you are going to visit only one gallery while in Asheville, this is the one to see. Top notch quality pieces, great sculpture garden. A feast for the eyes and a shopping delight for collectors.

The Grovewood Gallery features the work of local artisans, all of which is of the highest quality and creativity. There are so many unique, one-of-a-kind items that a visit there is much akin to being in a top-rated art museum...except that you can handle and purchase all of these items. And a bonus is that adjacent to the Gallery (a... More

The most beautiful artworks I have ever seen. All across the board of mediums by local artists and craftsmen. Very pricey but probably worth it.
