Who, What, Where
The River Arts District was once the industrial district of Asheville. 25 Historic buildings lining the railroad tracks along the French Broad River are now home to artists of varying craft. Ceramic Artists, Metal Workers, Wood Workers, Painters, and more and have set up shop in these gorgeous brick buildings and during the Studio Strolls, they open wide their doors and windows to provide demos and workshops for visiting art lovers. Fiber Art, Glass Blowing, Jewelry Making - RAD has it all and this is the weekend to see it!
This is a totally free event to attend, but be prepared to find some truly unique gifts for friends and loved ones. Artists will be selling much of the work on display!
