Art Aficionados and Summer Lovers Visit Asheville, NC for the Annual Art in the Park Series


Asheville's Art in the Park draws hundreds of people to North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains each June. The event, which takes place June 15th, 22nd, and 29th, 2013, gives visitors the chance to meet local artists and craftspeople as they stroll though the central downtown market. Many different types of high quality arts and fine crafts are available, including painting, quilting, pottery, lamp working, blacksmithing,  jewelry, woodworking, drawing, metalsmithing, and paper making.

Give your support to the local arts community
By shopping at Art in the Park, not only will you be gathering home decor and collectables, you'll also be supporting the Asheville arts community. Ten percent of all sales from the market are donated to a local, art-based nonprofit. A different organization benefits each Saturday, making a direct impact on artist's lives and opportunities. A few of the nonprofit organizations that have participated include the Open Hearts Art Center, Handmade in America, the Flood Gallery and Art Center, and the Asheville Area Arts Council. 


Asheville's nationally recognized thriving arts scene
For over a decade, AmericanStyle Magazine's annual readers' poll has consistently listed Asheville as a Top 25 Small City Arts Destination. This comes as no surprise to locals and fans of the Asheville art scene. The River Arts District is booming, there are dozens of art galleries in the downtown district, and hundreds of artists make their home in the inspirational mountains surrounding Asheville, where art festivals and studio tours occur regularly.
