Recreation - Museums and Galleries

Digg this!

For generations fine artists in every medium have chosen to live in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. Here you’ll find galleries that show and sell paintings, pottery, ceramics, art glass, sculpture, and textile arts created by talented masters inspired by the beauty and drama of the mountains and their people.

A stroll along Weaverville’s Main Street will take you to several galleries showing locally designed artworks and craft masterpieces. And artists abound in the close-in region with a welcoming standing invitation to come, visit and observe their handiwork and craftsmanship.

The Asheville Art Museum’s permanent collections range from 19th-century classic art to the most contemporary exhibits. The Colburn Gem & Mineral Museum traces the wide range of precious and semi-precious gemstones and valuable minerals that helped develop the early WNC economy.

On the drawing board is the Moogseum, an interactive site dedicated to the late electronic music giant Robert Moog and his still-thriving Asheville business, Moog Instruments. The River Arts District nestled along the banks of the French Broad includes scores of sculptors’, painters’, and potters’ galleries, many of them open to visitors.

Zebulon Vance Birthplace

This pioneer farmstead, tucked in the Reems Creek Valley, features the birthplace of Zebulon Baird Vance. The five-room reconstructed log house and its outbuildings are furnished to evoke the period from 1795- 1840. Vance's political career as Civil War officer, North Carolina governor, and U.S. senator is traced at the homestead.
