The River Arts District of Asheville is a mile long cluster of working studios, galleries and eateries housed in the former industrial section of town surrounding the railroad along the banks of the French Broad River. More than 180 working studio artists, many with showrooms and galleries, are open throughout the year. During Studio Stroll, visitors are able to comb the district riding the Grey Line Trolley for free. River Arts District Artists work in such mediums as paint, pencil, pottery, metal, fiber, glass, wax and paper.
Join the thousands of visitors from nearby and abroad interacting with some 180+ artists working and selling art in their River Arts District studios. The River Arts Studio Stroll is a twice a year event, with the spring event happening early and just in time for Mother’s Day!
