Always a thrilling display of quilts. Great unique earrings. Nice pottery. Fun souvenirs. Interesting artists plying their trade in the lobby - watch and ask questions.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 27 April 2012

This was the second time I had visited the Folk Art Center. The first time was in the summer with family, grandchildren, etc., and we enjoyed a picnic lunch at one of the many tables set out for that purpose. The center contains many wonderful arts and crafts and books, something for everyone. I especially enjoyed the magnificent quilt display on the second floor.

“Sunday morning gallery”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

I visited the Folk Art Center on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Asheville. The different types of art and crafts exhibited made for an enjoyable visit. I especially loved the quilts and jewelry. The permanent collection was outstanding and small enough to take in even with our limited time to visit. There are local crafts in all price ranges so you are sure to find something to take home with you if you visit. The dogwoods on the parkway were in bloom so the short ride there from Asheville was a scenic one.
