Anvil Arts Sculpture Garden and Gallery in Linville Falls is a unique arts destination offering visitors the opportunity to experience sculpture in an outdoor garden area and in the interior gallery. Anvil Arts is also the working studio of sculptor Bill Brown Jr. Bill’s sculpture explores the interplay of different materials and plays with the expectations of metal. The working studio was started 40 years ago, and the garden and gallery evolved over the years.
Visitors to Anvil Arts can explore, experience, and collect sculptural works created by artists from the Southeast. The sculpture garden features a number of installations spread across the scenic meadow, gardens, and wooded areas of the property. Visitors can also get a look into Bill’s studio which features large and small-scale tools and machinery used in his work. In the showroom and around the property they can also view his in-progress and completed works.
Just off the Blue Ridge Parkway, Anvil Arts offers an indoor gallery with work in steel, glass, stone, copper, wood, and more from six other artists. The gallery has a range of artwork, from small art objects to wall pieces in a variety of mediums. All exhibited work is available for purchase.
Hours: Thursday-Saturday 10 am-5pm, May-November
