I believe this sold this year and everything was auctioned off. It was a very interesting compound when I stopped in last year.

I found this gallery while on a trip to Townsend's Little River Campground. I love to ramble in nature's tucked away places. I stumbled upon the gallery and was delighted with the actual gallery,the artist and the artwork.The gallery itself is a work of art, and tucked away as you would expect a treasure to be. The grounds are lovely.... More

I have visited this gallery and studio many times in past years. But sadly, Mr. Roberson has passed away. Many of his prints can still be seen in restaurants and stores around Townsend. You can purchase his prints at the Dogwood Mall.

I have been going to the Smoky Mountains for over forty years. This year we stopped at Lee Roberson's Art Gallery. All I can say is that this visit was the most enjoyable place I have been in the Smoky Mountains in forty years! Lee and his wife will make you feel welcome and like you are visiting family! I...

Most people who have been to the smokies will be familiar with Lee Roberson's work. I can remember going to Lee's gallery years ago before he and his first wife divorced. For a while he moved out of the gallery in the woods and into a strip mall in Townsend - mistake. Now he's back in the old gallery in... More

My husband and I along with two friends were driving to Cades Cove when we noticed a sign pointing the way to Lee Roberson's Gallery. Overwhelmed with shouts of "Turn around" / "A local artist?" / "Go back" my husband found a safe place to do so. The road to the gallery is winding and one-lane with humorous signs and... More

This is a beautiful gallery in Townsend. Lee and his wife have been there most times we have been. He is very helpful and always takes the time to talk to his guests. I have his pictures throughout my home and visit every time I go!

This is a beautiful area to visit. The drive from Gatlinburg to Townsend is gorgeous riding along the water. But my favorite place is right outside of town. It is the Lee Roberson Art Gallery. He is only opened on Sun., Wed., and Fri. from 10 - 5. It is very quaint place and well worth going to,. Lee and... More
