Flow Gallery can be found in downtown Marshall between the French Broad River and the iconic Madison County courthouse. The shop is owned and managed by a team of four women, all of whom are artists. Open for more than a decade, Flow was started as a venue to show and sell the owners’ work, along with work from other local artists. Today, the gallery represents over 70 distinctive artists, most from Madison County. Visitors to Flow Gallery will find a display space with original brick walls from 1899 and complementing hardwood floors. Tall windows in the front let in plenty of natural light and look out onto the courthouse.
The gallery carries unique, handmade, high-quality artwork in a variety of media and styles. Local potters produce functional and decorative pieces, starting with vases, mugs, serving plates and mixing bowls, and moving into sculptural and spiritual pieces. Wooden offerings include furniture, vessels, and wall hangings. Fiber work is offered in the forms of hats, scarves, coats, shirts, skirts, bags and bow ties fashioned from felt, cotton, wool and silk. Jewelry is offered from 10 different artists making necklaces, bracelets, pins, and earrings from silver, copper, fiber, wood, and gold.
Visitors can also browse whimsical sculptures, colorful silk paintings, stunning photography, lively quilts, ceramic plaques, and unusual prints. Giftware includes bowls of wood and clay, exquisite wooden cutting boards and serving pieces, colorful tea towels, handmade soaps, healing ointments, puzzles, posters, and chocolate.
