Penland Gallery & Visitors Center 

OPEN for Visitors
Wednesday – Saturday
11:00 AM – 5:00PM

Penland’s main campus (everything except for the gallery and resident artist studios) is currently closed to all visitors. We don’t enjoy turning people away, but we have promised our workshop participants, all of whom have to show proof of a negative COVID test to enter campus, that they can rely on an educational environment that is as controlled and predictable as possible. We have been able to guide Penland through this challenging time by taking slow, careful steps towards the full version of campus life that we all miss. We’ll get there soon and we hope to see you when we do.


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.
