Blue Ridge Mountain Host
featured advertisement


Do the Blue Ridge Mountains attract artists or does the awe-inspiring scenery turn regular folks into creative geniuses? We don’t know. Bottom line is, these mountains are teaming with artists and you’ll find their works in out-of-town studios, small-town stores and uptown Asheville art galleries. Our galleries also contain unique works from around the world. No wonder art lovers love us.
