Artisun Gallery & Cafe
Add to Trip

Artisun Gallery in Hot Springs opened in 2012 after founder, “Sunny,” came to know Hot Springs while passing through on the Appalachian Trail. Hot Springs is one of two towns through which the trail passes. In 2019, Phillip and Pascha Solomon acquired Artisun. Today, they curate the gallery which serves as a home for the artists and creators of Hot Springs, Madison County, and the Appalachian region. Artisun occupies a building that was built in the late 1880s and previously housed hardware and general goods stores.  

Hot Springs is unique in part because of the dual influences of the Appalachian Trail and the French Broad River. Artisun seeks to create an atmosphere that captures this essence of these natural elements as well as the spirit of the local creative community.   

Visitors to Artisun Gallery can browse work for sale including handmade jewelry, pottery, woodwork, leatherwork, crystals, gems, photography, illustrations, original paintings, prints, handmade herbal remedies, tinctures, clothing, and more. Many artists in the gallery display exclusively at Artisun. Visitors can also enjoy refreshment options including locally-sourced baked goods, coffee, kombucha, ice cream, and more. 

Hours: Open Daily 8 am-8 pm
