Holiday Weekends at Anvil Arts
The Anvil Arts Studio, Sculpture Garden & Gallery in
Linville Falls will be open weekends for the holiday season.
Anvil Arts Studio is the working studio of artist Bill Brown and also features outdoor sculpture gardens and the studio gallery. Along with the sculpture, lighting and paintings of Bill Brown, the gallery space has a special exhibit of artwork by area artists in a range of mediums from pottery to grapevine baskets.
Brown has created work in this studio for more than 30 years, and his work can be found in public and private collections throughout the United States. Brown’s work has been featured in invitational exhibitions, competitions, gallery shows, museum exhibitions and publications, including a recent PBS documentary.
“I am not regularly in the studio on the weekends,” Brown said, “but now that the Linville Falls Winery is open across the street – and they will soon be selling Christmas trees and wreaths, as well – I wanted to give people an opportunity to visit the studio during weekend hours.”
The work of a variety of other artists presents an eclectic mix of art on display, and there are many items Brown said would be great for holiday gifts. Two popular gift items created in the studio are Brown’s forged steel rhododendron candle holders and his barbecue skewer sets.
Visitors are welcome to stop by the galley and gardens each Saturday and Sunday through Dec. 22. The Anvil Arts Studio is located at 9600 Linville Falls Highway (U.S. 221). For more information, call (828) 765-6226 or visit http://www.studiosculpture.com.
