Penland Gallery & Visitors Center 

From December 25, 2021 through February 28, 2022 the brick + mortar Penland Gallery is on winter hiatus. Gallery staff are working behind the scenes and the online SHOP is running 24/7.  If you are in the area and would like to visit the gallery during the winter hiatus, we suggest calling ahead to be sure staff are available to greet you.

The Penland Coffeehouse and the Supply Store will be open to visitors in January with limited and variable winter hours. Visitors are welcome at the Penland Gallery, Supply Store, Coffee House, and the Resident Artist’s studios at the Barns. You are welcome to walk the grounds of the main campus (dogs must be on a leash), however please note that our teaching studios are not open to public. 

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. 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.
