The art at Ariel always amazes me. Unlike many galleries, the openness allows you to concentrate on the individual works. Staff is amazing and patient.

This gallery is close to Pack Square. It is a co-op of many artists of various mediums. One of the artists is always working on-site and you buy directly from the artist. There is a nice variety on display. Prices and styles vary dramatically. Great...More

The handcrafted items here are stunning. There is a wide variety of artwork -- jewelry, scarfs, bowls, furniture, and more. All of it is high-end but the prices are reasonable because this is a cooperative in which all the artists participate, so the markup is...More

Ariel is a fine gallery, though the quality of the art is not up to the level of Blue Spiral1(up the street). Having said that, there is much to like at Ariel, and prices are substantially lower than Blue Spiral1.

This collection of artists do wonderful work, well executed and meaningful designs. I met an artist I had admired for 30 years, Jane Peiser. Her work is very detailed and extremely interesting and well done. All the art was inspiring, both the functional and other.

Ariel is, in my opinion, the absolutely best small gallery in Asheville, especially one which exhibits only the work of Asheville-area artists. It's a co-op, meaning the "salespeople" are all artists whose work is being exhibited, so they are especially knowledgeable; they also aren't the...More

This gallery was a delight as it is a coop gallery and all of the artists that participate are at the top of their game. Try not to miss this one. It is across the street from the Blue Spiral, I think. Make sure you...More
