River Arts District

River Arts District North Carolina

The River Arts District in West Asheville began as a landing place for manufacturing companies and their warehouses. Fast forward to today and the area known as RAD has blossomed into the area’s mecca for local artisans. Located along the French Broad River, the River Arts District boasts hundreds of artists from painters, potters and sculptors to metalsmiths, carpenters, brew masters, and everything in between. Two weekends a year take part in the River Arts Studio Stroll and experience the converted warehouse studios and the stunning artwork created inside, enjoy a RAD brewed beverage and take part in one of the many workshops offered.
