Kenilworth Artists Studio Tour
Asheville’s eclectic neighborhood of Kenilworth delivers another stellar Kenilworth Artists Studio Tour on the weekend of October 7 and 8 from 10-5, both Saturday and Sunday. This annual event, now over 20 years old, is a terrific resource for one of a kind original art and grand gifts for great friends.
Visit artist’s homes or studios throughout Kenilworth’s twisting winding roads. This year 25 artists bring their unique works of ceramics, knitwear, woodwork, encaustic, mixed media, glass and silver jewelry, and paintings of oil, acrylic and watercolor.
Our artist slate includes 20 returning artists and 5 new to this year’s event. The opportunity to meet the artists while appreciating their craft is exciting. Be prepared to love their work and take some home.
Meet Laura Peery, a fanciful and functional ceramist that patterns her pots and pitchers as a seamstress would. Her delightful designs are full of personality.
Meet Ursula Gullow, an expressive painter of colorful landscapes and narratives. Her collectible work can be found in several NC galleries and museums. Described as “folksy, epic and quietly revolutionary” Ursula has been a fixture of the Kenilworth event for many years.
Our event is open to all. Locals and visitors can find an Asheville art item to take home or gift to a good friend. Visit all 14 sites, you won’t want to miss one. Brochures are available at each studio location to direct you to your next art stop.
