Asheville’s Grovewood Gallery Celebrates 30 Years
April 9, 2022 - April 10, 2022
On April 9 and 10, from 11 am – 4 pm, Grovewood Gallery in Asheville will celebrate a milestone anniversary with Cheers to 30! Join them for a weekend of artist demonstrations, live music, and festive food and drinks. Shoppers will also save 10% on gallery merchandise (excluding sculptures by Lyman Whitaker.) This event is free to attend and open to the public.
Established in 1992 by Barbara Blomberg, Marilyn Patton, and S.M. “Buddy” Patton, Grovewood Gallery is noted for its charming, old-world setting and rich craft heritage. The gallery once housed the “Homespun Shops” of Biltmore Industries, an Arts and Crafts enterprise that played a significant role in the Appalachian Craft Revival during the early 20th century. Today, the gallery continues Biltmore Industries’ tradition of supporting local craftspeople and also features the works of over 300 artists from
around the country.
During this weekend celebration, four North Carolina artists will be on-site demonstrating their craft and selling their wares. Andrea Kulish will demonstrate the ancient Ukrainian art of pysanky, a wax-resistant method of decorating Easter eggs. Dollmaker Charlie Patricolo will demonstrate needle sculpting – the process she uses to create her cloth doll faces (Sunday only). Weather permitting, Bryan Koontz will
demonstrate plein-air oil painting techniques in the gallery’s sculpture garden. Wildlife sculptor Roger Martin will also be outside, working on a clay sculpture that will later be cast in bronze.
Guests can also enjoy old-world Scottish instrumental music by The Tune Shepherds, who will play two sets on both days. This trio of Asheville musicians includes renowned flute maker and player Chris Abell, country dance fiddler Michael Garner, and Grammy-winning guitarist Bruce Nemerov.
