Arts and Crafts - Great Smoky Mountains National Park
The Great Smoky Mountains is one of the richest regions in America for its arts and crafts. There are entire communities of artisans with storefronts and art galleries. Some of the best artisans can be found in the Gatlinburg Smoky Arts & Crafts Community, on the Cherokee Indian Reservation in Cherokee NC, and the Arts & Crafts Trails in Asheville, Franklin, Maggie Valley, and Bryson City, North Carolina.
The Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in downtown Gatlinburg features artwork by local, national and international artists in its five galleries, which offer a full schedule of changing exhibitions.
