This weekend, the artists and studios of the famous River Arts District (RAD) present their bi-annual Studio Stroll in Downtown Asheville, where more than 170 artists across 25 buildings open up their studios for two days of art, creations, demonstrations and great family fun.
Enjoy Asheville artistry at its finest during the Fall Studio Stroll. No Target gift cards for your friends…you’ll be able to get your Christmas shopping done early and get meaningful presents for your loved ones that are locally made and totally unique. The Studio Stroll only takes place twice a year and it’s a great event to engage with local small businesses and artists, so get out there this weekend and get your stroll on. And check out one of our favorite shopping sponsors, Curve Studios and Garden.
Getting to and around in the River Arts District is a breeze. Accessible by car from Downtown, West Asheville, and Biltmore Village, there is plenty of parking. If the scale of 170 artist and 25 buildings seems daunting, RAD has a free trolley shuttle to help you get around. You can catch the free trolley at any of the stops listed on their website map.
Once you’re done shopping, congratulate yourself on the thoughtfulness of the gifts you’ll be giving and head over to Wedge Brewing (locate in the heart of the River Arts District) and order up one of Wedge’s tasty brews.
