All Aboard the Art Bus

The Boone art scene is teeming with enough galleries, music halls and street performances to satisfy the culture yearnings of the most seasoned collectors, as well as experts.

To expand the horizons of art fans, donors and the more casual observers of fine art, the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts of Appalachian State University is offering a Gallery Bus Trip art tour to Asheville on Friday, June 20.

The day-long trek will take art enthusiasts on a custom tour through several downtown galleries, including visits to Blue Spiral 1, Ariel Gallery, studios in the River Arts District and the Asheville Glass Center.

“It’s an opportunity for donors and people interested in the arts to experience art in our region and to experience art in a group in a guided tour,” said Lindsay Miller, executive assistant at the Turchin Center.

Gallery owners will present at each stop, and artists will be on hand, so guests can see art made firsthand.

“It’s an inside look into galleries in Asheville,” Miller added. “Gallery owners will be present to talk about the history.”

The trip offers those interested in the arts a unique cultural experience not offered anywhere else.

“Trips like these help enrich cultures of arts in Boone,” Miller said. “I think it helps connect people to it and also gives them insight into how much art we have in our area.”

There are currently only 15 vacant spots remaining on the trip. To make a reservation, call the Turchin Center at (828) 262-3017, or email Nealy Andrews at ( Tickets are priced at $55 per person and include lunch and travel costs.
