Due to serious COVID-19 concerns, the Asheville Gallery of Art, located at 82 Patton Avenue in downtown Asheville, is closed to the public March 16 through March 31. We will assess this fluid situation midway and determine an official reopening date. We are sorry for any inconvenience this might cause but our objectives are:

• Concern for the safety and health of our visitors, our community and our individual member artists

• Need to "blunt" the curve of confirmed cases, keeping the number of those infected low enough so as to not overwhelm our hospitals and health care workers.

We will make every effort to keep the public posted on any possible changes as the scope of this situation becomes more apparent. Please visit our website,, to view and enjoy many of our beautiful artworks.
