Penland Gallery & Visitors Center

The Penland Gallery and Visitors Center is one of the finest showcases for contemporary craft in the Southeast. Attracting thousands of visitors each year, the gallery exhibits and sells work by current and former Penland instructors, resident artists, and former students from around the country. A knowledgeable staff provides information about the school’s programs, the artists, and studios in the area. The historic building was renovated in 2015 to both enhance the visitor experience and provide exceptional exhibition spaces for contemporary crafts. The John & Robyn Horn Gallery, Lucy Morgan Gallery, and the educational Visitors Center Gallery provide a remarkable destination for visitors to Penland School and the surrounding arts community.
