Folk Art Center


With a mission to preserve and interpret the folk arts of the southern Appalachians, this center has exhibition galleries with changing displays, a library, a bookstore, and the Allanstand Craft Shop. After a visit here, you’ll better understand the artisans who create, sew, throw, weave, and whittle crafts unique to the Blue Ridge region. A BRP information desk will acquaint you with other area attractions, and a nearby trail will entice you to stretch your legs a bit more.
